    What job do you actually have, warlock? Because after working in or around bookies for the best part of my life, I'm yet to meet anyone who finds people like blize pissing their money away anything less than a) hilarious and b) profitable! :D
    I'm a game dev. At the moment I'm workin' on some slots, but I've got some Roulette + Blackjack coming my way in a week or two. Won't mention exactly what/who for though.

    I've seen some crazy betting + winning - but I thank 'em for payin' my rent :D
    That aside I do feel a small responsibility to make sure people know about gamcare - we have it plastered on everything - and that they know how not just to stop when it becomes too much, but how to manage their playing and not let it run away from 'em :)
    Cool, I actually hate you guys for ruining betting offices, but still - nice one. ;)

    Ah, I have nothing to do with betting offices themselves. They're our customers, if anything :)

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    Well, it has been a couple of days since you bumped a legit thread solely to talk about yourself. How refreshing.

    By 'refreshing' I didn't mean refreshing.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    I went to a live casino a week or two ago, and lost my pants at the craps tables. :(

    He didn't lose his actual pants JK. In AmericaLand, pants mean trousers. When we lose our pants, we do it properly imo

    That made me snort out loud.

    Well played.

    I lurk. If I've spoken to you, I'm either impassioned, or drunk.

    Right...we lost our pants and shirts when we get killed at the casino or the like.

    It was for a bachelor party, though, so it was all in good fun. But it was one of those nights when you're up big early, but don't want to stop because it's early and you can possibly win even more, but then you stick around too long and lost what you won, plus what you planned to spend.

    Those crazy Yanks. Next you'll be saying something crazy like that say 'fanny' when they really mean 'arse'.

    It's funny that across the pond you call all Americans Yanks, and in Southern US they call us from the Northeast Yanks...but in a more derogatory way. :(

    Let me just make it clear that I don't mean it in a derogatory way at all :)

    Ouch.

    1200 40 minutes.

    That was supposed to be my afternoon. Now I have nothing to do so have slinked back in to the office to silently fume.

    Yep, blackjack with a unbelievable run of bad cards. Almost comical. Should have played a few shoes, rather than getting all gung ho. Shouldn't have played perfect pairs either.

    Oh well the anger is slipping away, now to deal with the simmering resentment.

    Joy.

    Was this online or in a casino? When I was taking advantage of the free cash online, blackjack was infuriating. Not an enjoyable gamble, and I love to piss money away on fuck all.

    Do you have an other half Load? I can imagine she'd be going mental if you do :(

    No unfortunately there is a casino within 5 minutes of my office.

    Almost a whole year without playing cards. Now I can feel the bite, just have to avoid the bank and go straight home.

    Wow I am haemorrhaging money at the moment. It all comes out of the assigned fund but that is almost cleaned out for the year.

    /Le sigh.

    Sounds like you have a gambling problem there old boy.


    As in you're shit at gambling.

    I lurk. If I've spoken to you, I'm either impassioned, or drunk.

    Indeed.

    Though it is reigned in from the "bad old days" and now at least can be considered a hobby. Once the specified account is drained for the year, thats it till 2011.
