    Lighten the mood! What are your funny/cringeworthy gambling stories that you look back and either laugh because you can't believe you did that or cringe at the thought.

    Edited post, hey guys edited post, think it could be a good thread.
    Yeah I got heaps where do I start? I am sitting at Crown Casino and I have self excluded so nervous I will be busted! Then I lose my money so go to the bank to withdraw my last $800. As I am sitting there playing a Crown staff came up to me and i thought OMG I'm F**K*D Only to ask me if I am a member and do I want to sign up to be a Crown member? I refused of course because you need to hand them your license to do so and if I did the system would immediately tell them I am self excluded, He was persistent and kept trying to get me to sign up saying, "You get free parking" on signing up. Anyway finally got rid of him then lost all my money and went back to my car to rob the ash tray and found a whole $8 bucks! Won $100 but of course as you do gambled all that too. Then when I went to leave OMG didn't have any money to pay for parking!!!!! Had to call the parking staff who kept asking me, "Did you gamble tonight?" I said, "no" came to watch a movie!!! Had I said yes once again could have been fined $$$ for going on the gaming floor when self excluded. They took my license and all my details and I had to drive back up to the city to pay my parking fee. I look back to all the money I have spent in there probably over 1/2 a million. What a waste hey? But then i also think back if i had not done that to release stress and pressure would I be 6 foot under by now? Hmmmm

    You have to sit back and wonder "What was I thinking"
    But..we didn't think when we were caught up in the web of gambling
    Thanks for sharing your story
