    No.

    I've been in casinos in Nevada, California, and New Mexico.

    I've never seen so many penny slots as I have seen in the New Mexico Indian casinos.

    Never in the Midwest.

    Mississippi, up the river, right across from Arkansas. Only time I have ever been in one. Lost 10 bucks and I said enough of this shit...

    Yes, I have. I've been to the casino's in Atlantic City but I've never been to Vegas. The casino's here in the mid-west are mostly river boat kind of affairs but not too long ago, Iowa built a dry land casino and did away with the river boat in Clinton, Iowa which is the closest casino to where I live. They are about 60 miles away. I used to go to the casinos fairly often but it pisses the wife off and I have discovered that they are not in business to give money away. I've won big at the casino and also have done my share of loosing. I guess in the long run it's probably about even. If you want to go to the casino, I have an offer for you. Let me hold about half of the money you were going to take with you to the casino. When you come back to pick up your money, I'll just keep half of what you gave me to hold on to. It's better odds than you'd get at the casino. I'm not at all against casino gambling. It can be fun but mostly it's a loosing kind of deal. Know your limit and stick to it.

    Very briefly - riverboat, E. St. Louis. Just to see what it was like. No big thrill, IMO.

    Now the Wrangler-clad cowboys at the rodeo ... that was better. :cool:

    I've never been to noble casinos Las-Vegas style. I went to smaller ones, and played automatic slots in bars and so on. But I quit playing with 21, I lost only money and never won anything.
    What I still do is betting on sports events. But only big events like World Cup in Soccer or European Championship in soccer.
