My experience of gambling is pretty limited. I've probably brought 2 lottery tickets in my life and I have no idea how to play poker. However I do love winning, I mean who doesn't? It's always a thrill to win something and I personally don't see anything wrong with gambling for fun as long as you're responsible and only gamble within your budget.
I've been in a Casino once and I gambled £1 which I lost, but it was fun none the less. I would definitely love to properly experience a Casino and one of my goals is to learn how to play poker and win! The glamour of gambling is definitely enhanced by movies which, other than giving an unrealistic view of gambling, make it look pretty exciting. I definitely want to sit at a poker table and order a Martini, shaken not stirred!
PaddyPower have created this flowchart where you can find out which Movie Gambler you are. I'd like to say I'm more of a Danny Ocean (Oceans 11) with the brains to orchestrate a casino robbery, but I'm definitely more of an Austin Powers! At least I'll be sure to have some fun though.
I'd love to know which Movie Gambler you would be? If you're not lucky enough to have a fancy Casino you can get a taste of the casino lifestyle at Paddy Power Online Casino here. Make sure to gamble responsibly and within your means, and remember what they say... The house always wins!
