Now, there's a question.
For me, personally, and yes I'm telling the truth, no. The reason for that is I don't bet much so I have little to lose and the free drinks, bets, atmosphere and night are worth a loss of £60 without too much concern.
Clearly, I don't want to lose a penny. And, thankfully, I have been lucky on many occasions and, believe it or not, I'm winning money from the casino.
I think I have had one or two times when I lost £60 and felt a bit annoyed if not a touch frustrated by the evening. Mainly because my approach to gambling on the roulette is particularly boring so I need a win to feel justified in playing at all.
It's all swings and roundabouts, hey. Although I feel quite comfortable with a loss I have got so used to breaking even or winning a small amount of cash that I do feel I will return to my hotel a winner.
However, what would I think if I turned up to the casino with £1000 and thought I'm having a good go at making a couple of grand if not more.
I can imagine you saying: ''Don't do it.''
Think of your mother and what she would say if she found out.
The thought of betting £1000 at the casino doesn't motivate me at all. In fact, I am pretty sure I would return losing and feel very annoyed at my own stupidity.
So, I still to my paltry sums.
But consider for a moment the number of people who go to the casino and lose a monkey. That's £500 to those who don't know their animal to money conversion rate. There must have been thousands if not millions of punters who have done that.
Probably a good few who only had £500 in the bank.
How would that feel the next day?
I can imagine you would feel quite regretful if not a bit stupid in ways.
Perhaps you wouldn't give two stuffs. Water off a duck's back. Easy come easy go.
Each to their own.
The funny thing is I have bet a few thousand pounds on a horse before. Thankfully all those big bets made a profit.
The difference with betting on the horses is that it is skill-based.
Anyway, I can safely say, I will never go to the casino and lose £1000.
The only way that is possible is if I become a multi-millionaire and even then I like to think I wouldn't bet that kind of cash.
Let's face it, it doesn't take long to lose a million pounds at a thousand pounds a time.
If you have lost that much cash, I bet you feel regretful.
