The Bet is a good example of why I don’t like to gamble. At least not in casinos. I have a buddy who routinely gives me forty dollars whenever we hit a casino for the various bachelor parties we’ve gone to. It’s not that I’m poor, I just don’t like to take those sort of risks.
For example, the last time we did this… he gave me $40 because he really wanted me to gamble. I hit the roulette table and ended the night with $200 in my pocket. He, on the other hand, dropped a solid $600 on the night and left in the red.
Friendly gambles are fun, though. I bet on last year’s Super Bowl with a buddy and the loser would have to buy the winner an Xbox game. And that’s how I got to enjoy a free copy of Dying Light.
