Are you a big gambler? I admit that I’m not a huge fan of traditional gambling, even though I sort of wish I were. People seem to really love gambling, and I feel like I’m missing out by not enjoying it. Plus, there’s a part of me that dreams of being some super cool poker player that everyone is in awe of. Unfortunately, I’m just not that cool… or brainy!
When I first turned 21 (the legal gambling age in the US), my friend and I thought it would be fun to go to a casino together. We drove for hours to Atlantic City, checked in to our hotel, and finally made our way to the slot machines. We each got twenty dollars worth of chips to gamble, and well, let’s just say that I never lost twenty dollars so quickly in my life. I haven’t gambled since.
That being said, I think there is a certain old fashioned glamour to gambling. I love movies about gambling, and I’ve been known to enjoy a trip to Las Vegas. I just hold on to my money and use it for shows and dinners instead. What about you? Do you gamble? Have you ever won anything?
Although I don’t gamble, I think slot machines are interesting. They are good at drawing people in, and the loud noises they make actually feel a little festive to me. Plus, I love all the symbols, and I’ve always wondered what they could mean. It turns out that they have a pretty interesting history… did you know that the BAR symbol is derived from an old gum company logo? Anyway, here’s my latest quiz dedicated to this crazy machines…What Slot Machine Symbol Are You?
What do you think of this quiz? Let me know what you got and how well it describes you. I’m curious to know, what’s the biggest gamble you’re willing to take?
