I would like to win big at poker or the lottery someday

Every time I buy a lottery ticket, play a game of Bingo or Poker I like to think I can win big. So far that has not happened. I still like the occasional game of chance though. It is the idea that maybe this time I will win.

For me the lottery ticket is that you cannot win if you don’t have a ticket, and it only takes one. That does not mean I buy a ticket for every draw, but I usually buy a couple a month on the off chance I might get the big one.

Bingo was always a social outing. Yes I have won the big one a few times over the years, but that was many years ago. To be honest it was more that it was a night out with my friends with the chance of winning something. I have played some online bingo and it is fun and I can chat without leaving my home.

Poker I like to think of as a game of skill and chance. I love playing it at online casinos, and yes the 10-cent game is more thrilling then a free roll any day. The money does makes a difference, even just a dime, but I like to see how far I can get and if I can place. I keep to the 10-cent tournaments because I know I could spend a lot if I did anything else. I only gamble what I am willing to loose, which is about 10 cents. One day I hope to play a game face to face, not just online.

I do admit that I actually like watching poker on T.V. and like to read up on the game. Poker just never seemed like something that would make a great spectator sport, or that people would want to read about it. Seems it is, On Line Casinos has a community area for individuals blogs about gambling, forum discussions and more. I actually enjoy the thrill of a good game even when I am not playing it. Today gambling is news on some sites like On line casino reports. They have interviews with the big players, event coverage and even tips on how to play better. I guess money is not just made at the table anymore, big winners are celebrities now and are being treated as such.

Here is one of the stories found on “On line casino reports”. They actually do relevant and interesting news reports on gambling. Who knew it could be news?

I have found that I am not into sports betting, I guess you have to be big into sports to get into it. Though that is not actually the case because I have met a few people who will bet on anything and everything.

I am more interested in a game of skill like poker or backgammon, though I have never bet on backgammon. I guess I am not much of a risk taker or gambler when it comes to real money. I still like to play though. I did spend sometime looking around at different casinos to find ones that had free games so I could learn and improve my game. Then I ended up playing free rolls, won some money and started playing for money. Now all I have to do is go to an online casino guild to find what promotions are on, what the payouts are and more. It makes it easer to find a game I can afford to play in at a time I can play.

I have to admit that I have a long way to go before I could ever try to make a living from playing poker. For me it is just a fun game with as little or as lot of risk as I want to take. I don’t like to take a big risk, so I guess it will always be the penny tables and 10-cent tournaments for me. Unless I win the lottery, that is.
