 How many on-line players are here? Do you play online?

  If yes..... (optional) about how many states do you play? In general.   

  If no.... .. (optional) why not? 

 

 

The only real failure .....is the failure to try.                               

                              Luck is a very rare thing....... Odds not so much. 

                              Odds never change .....but probability does. 

                                                                                       Win d

     No. Just making clicks of a mouse to make live bets is the same as casinos getting you to you chios instead of 'real money'.  Same thing as guys burying themselves with bookies because all they have to do is make a phone call. 

    That's just me personally, and I'm sure there are online players here and more power to them. I'm just saying it's easier to 'get into trouble' that way.

        I've just started playing on line about a week ago.  I play Florida 3/4 and California 3/4.  I like the convenience of it, the higher payouts, and I still play within the budget I played with before starting on line betting.

          I play IL 3/4 everyday.  Sometimes will play all states, but not everyday.

                When betslips was around I use to buy Mega Millions from them.  But to be honest I am glad I never won anything because I would have had to pay them for their services.  Now I travel to Washington to get Mega Millions and I do not pay any one for their services except the gas man and the food man.  I am greedy I do not like to share.-weshar75

                  So when you win, are you grateful you didn't play online and win twice as much? 

                  Stats show about 2-3% of people can't control themselves when it comes to something.  I feel sorry for them, but don't see why the fun of the rest of us must be spoiled to protect people from themselves. 

                  I play the Au NSW 6/45 and some P-3 at the other place, costs me half what it would locally and I don't have to drive there putting me ahead even if I don't win a thing.

                    Like I said, more power to you.

                    I worked with guys in Vegas who were in Vegas simply because the sports books demanded cash, they themselves knew bets over the phone got them in trouble. And Monday night as the worst, (the bookies best night by the way) because everyone is trying to make up for Sundays losses. The guy betting $55 on  Sunday games is now betting  " a nickel" ($500) on Monday trying to catch up. 

                    People like to think this won't happen with lotto or online but talk to people where video keno has been put in. Talk to people who have blown an awful lot of money playing online roulette, or poker. 

                    If you want to talk about stats, if you get specifically into different categories of gamblin, you'll find that there's more problem gamblers anywhere there is easier access to the gambling, a no brainer, of course, but...

                    As far as getting paid less when you win, personally I don't play enough to even warant playing online or win often enough that the "more money" would make a difference. And, like casino chips, that "more money" usually just gets thrown right back into the game.

                    In any form of gambling people either win and bring the money back, or they lose and go get some more of their own money, but either way, they come back.  

                    Like I said, more power to you - the poll question was "Do you play online", I answered and explained the answer.

                    YMMV 

                    (your mileage may vary)

                      Online Roulette has gotten the best of me.  Although it wasn't my money from my earnings.. but my winnings from the lottery that I have lost playing Roulette.  I really love the game.  I have had to learn to play for fun. 

                      Hubby don't get too excited about winning $1000 in Lotto in one day when I go and play Roulette at night and lose a 1/4 of it..

                      I am very addicted to it.  He wishes I stick with numbers..

                          I don't play online.  I agree with Coin Toss on this matter but, as he wrote, it's just a poll and we all have our personal opinions.

                          I'm a very responsible person, but I still get excited when I'm playing a game, so I don't need or want the temptation of online gambling.

                            I can see my results.. Perhaps you need to clean your cache.

                            By the way, I voted no...
