I know a gamer who lost a ton of his savings gambling. I know a few cheapskates who will gamble in person--to a very exact limit--but not online. Fear of addiction!

@sandy carlson-It is a thin line between gambling for fun and having to gamble. I go into the casino with $50. I play BlackJack until it is gone, whether it takes 30 minutes or 7 hours. What is your game?
