“Recreational Gambling” and The Inveterate Gambler

“Recreational Gambling” and The Inveterate Gambler was part of a previous series called the Monday Link.  Each Monday, we tried to bring someone else’s expertise to our readers on many different topics.  This post is a single viewpoint on recreational gambling.

Recreational gambling – frequent gambling trips to enjoy the casino visit with the hope of coming out ahead. It’s also called social gambling, referring to gambling with friends for its fun, as long as there aren’t any negative consequences for the person in terms of time and money spent. Recreational gamblers should be able to gamble within their means and stop gambling at any time.

Anyone who cannot gamble without stopping or causing financial or personal harm to themselves or others is a gambler with serious gambling problems or addictions. For this post, we will hear about the fun side.

About our author – The Inveterate Gambler has had a keen interest in casino games. He has followed the casino industry for more decades than he likes to remember. Craps, Blackjack, and some Pai Gow Poker are his games of choice. He also enjoys playing in the home poker game where wild cards and luck overcome skill. Slots? – has no interest in slots. He says, “if there were notable games, he would never set foot inside a casino.” He is an expert on the Atlantic City scene. Like Batman, Superman, The Green Hornet, and a host of his other comic book heroes, The Inveterate Gambler must keep his true identity secret.  He wrote this article for TravelZork,  a group of writers that possess an individual, personal, and passionate touch that brings the best travel and Vegas information and resources to the web and beyond.
