Online Gambling

Anyone try it?

I've gambled at Indian Casinos in the Northeast. Might try online gambling (Blackjack) but not sure which one to choose.

Anyone have any experience with it.

I wouldn't trust it, as far as I could throw an ocean liner.

You need a credit card for these, yeah? Not only do I have issues with online transactions with credit cards, though I know many use them quite well and with no problems, they are usually with well known and respected sites like ebay and pay pal etc. I'd run a mile from an unknown gambling site. Especially one which came from a pop up.

Be careful eh?

its a legitimate business and there are some legitimate sites. id recommend looking around, making sure you find a site that is popular and you can trust, there should be some sort of verification thing you can check. and try to find out if anybody has had any problems with it before.

the thing i would be worried about is if the cards are truly random, or are they trying to set up outcomes. also if you play something like poker, you could be playing against a couple people who are talking on the phone and teaming up to get an advantage. so i wouldnt really trust that. blackjack it doesnt really matter if people talk, as its everyone against the dealer, but still, i dont know if id trust their "random" cards.

i did do some sports gambling a while back. (actually, it was interference that got me into it. someone posted a link to a place where you could wager on the first song u2 played during halftime of the superbowl, and then someone else posted they had heard the rehearsal and knew the first song would be beautiful day, so i thought, easy money, and it was...) i trust sports gambling more because the sites cant rig the games or anything, so the only thing you have to worry about is if they really pay out, and that would be easy to check, no one would bet there if people knew they wouldnt get paid. and thanks to a nice sports wager i made a hefty sum, had it wired to my bank account and have retired from online gambling with a nice profit (plus its so nervewrecking i couldnt take it anymore).

so that is my advice, but most of all, if you get into it, dont be an idiot. be sure to wager only what you can afford to lose, and if you lose it, dont go back. it can become addicting, so set a limit and be smart and you should be alright.

I've got this friend; seems like I am his only one...actually, he's well known in the community for being the bottom-feeder that he is...always looking for a quick buck without having to work for it...

He got into this online casino...used every credit card he could just to play catch up after loosing his ass! he then started using his father's business credit cards and well, you know where that got him. Lost his f------ house, he now lives with his parents (this guy is near 40 and has 4 kids!!!) and he's still looking for that golden ticket!

Online gambling! It can ruin you!

They're mostly fraudulent and, as a matter of fact, a lot of banks and credit card companies ban it. So, you might not be able to, even if you want to.
