    How much money have you won?

    I once heard someone say money won is a lot sweeter than money earned. I believe that's true. I'm not a big gambler but I do play the lottery a little bit. I used to bet football quite a bit but got burned so many times I said forget it.

    I once found $300 in an airport but as for the most money I ever won it was $1,100 on a 25 cent bet on a lottery number.

    Here's another gem in regard to gambling. An amateur Gambler goes into a casino with $100 trying to make $1,000. A professional Gambler goes into a casino with $1,000 trying to make $100. And when he gets it he leaves.

    Re: How much money have you won?

    I've had the odd scratch card here and there. I tried to develop a winning gambling method when I was younger; didn't work. I've lost more than I've won put it that way. I haven't gambled, or done the lottery for 10+ years. There is no way to beat the bookie/dealer/etc unless you're cheating or have algorithms. I have looked into AI gambling. I've got a powerful graphics card now so I might look into designing a network that can predict winners.

    I know a lad that has spent more than 30k in the roulette machines in bookies. He's won a few grand from them but lost far more than he's won. Another lad I know is always on them iphone gambling games.

    Human vs. Machine gambling is impossible to win. At least with sports betting there's some logic behind the bet.

    I came close to winning an accumulator. Newcastle let me down. That would have been something like 11k if that would have came through. Accumulator's are good because for a quid/dollar you can win a lot more back. You need to really know the game you're betting in though, and the teams.

    It's rare I win anything. The occasional 20-50 on lotteries.

    The biggest one I was on for was a works world cup sweepstake but got knocked into a runner position when...it went into half time and Zidane nutted of the opposition. I've always believed if that didn't happen France would have won on penalties and progressed since Zidane was an excellent penno taker.

    Is this your way of trying to figure out which NMP member has the most money, N? Are you planning to make some new friends?

    Been playing the lotto for years. Same numbers. Most I've won is a couple hundred. Definitely spent way more than I've won. But still, its the fact I have just as much a chance as anyone else that keeps me doing it
