I know ahead of time how much I am willing to lose. I will only take $25 to play. After thats gone, I am done. I love casinos! I have only won a few times but I am sure not enough to cover my losses, but again, I limit my losses. On my only cruise, it was 4 days long, I spent $75 in the casino.
I have been on River Cruise Casino boats and after spending my set amount I will go somewhere to sit until the boat returns to dock. I dont take CC's, debit cards or checks. Nothing that will allow me to access more money. I have gambled in Germany, Oklahoma, the Bahama's, on the Fanstasy and on the gambling boats in IL.
My reasoning is I can walk into Walmart and spend money and dont even know what I bought a day later. This way I am having fun and amusing myself!
