The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Under 21 Gambling

    Hey everybody real quick question, so I'm tuning 20 soon and I just don't feel like waiting that extra year to be able to walk into a casino and play some poker. A friend of mine claims that certain casinos on indian reservations allow you to gamble at 18. Is there any truth to this and if so where are these casinos? I live in the midwest, Illinois to be exact, and I'm willing to drive a ways if anybody knows of anyplace.

    In Australia the legal age is 18 but I doubt it's worth the travel lol.

    When I was your age I didn't want to hear this, but. DON'T GAMBLE. It's just not good. If you want to play a few cheap hands with your buds, cool. But anytime gambling starts to involve any real money, it gets ugly fast. The casino industry is a people eater, and your boys won't be your boys for long if you take any real bread off'f them. Just don't. WoW is less dangerous.

    Gambling is fun for a while, but I'm always amazed at how expensive it is. $100 doesn't go very far I usually end up playing blackjack for quarters on a machine
    I guess that's just me though. I don't like loosing several hundred dollars in a short period of time.

    Besides the fact that you shouldnt be gambling most casinos aren't going to ID you. You can walk in and play some games don't worry. If you "hit it big" just have an older friend or stranger cash out for you. Just act like an adult and no one will bother you.

    Gambling is all fun and games until you suddenly find yourself playing live cash games/tournies once a week with friends..playing online poker...sportsbetting and buying scratch tickets and keno at bars. So I've heard.

    Gambling is not fun for small amounts. If you don't have some cash to 'risk' (or probably lose) you should not be gambling. That said $50 min per hand of blackjack does the trick.

    Like Bicster said..don't act like a tool and you won't draw attention you yourself. They are not going to be overly eager to lose business.

    Where are you from? Here in Onatrio they ID anyone under 30. They have an "over 30 express entrance."

    Small is relative. IMO $50 / hand is ridiculously high. Then again there are people that play $100 slot machines

    Ha Ok guys I think i may have given the wrong impression as to my intentions here. I'm not an addctive gambler the only thing I play is poker and although it is considered gambling I find it to involve a lot more skill than lets say blackjack or craps. The real reason I really wanted to go is to enter into like a big $50 holdem tournament, which don't happen to often outside of the casinos. But yes i do have to agree with the general opinion that gambling is BAD and will , in the end, leave you with an empty wallett. Don't get me wrong I'm just looking to have a fun road trip with some buddies. We all like poker and this just seemed like a good idea. Thanks for all the replies.

    That would be perfect! Do they have a web site or would I just be waisting my time looking?

    [QUOTE=RedSpikeyThing;1590567]Where are you from?

    Where I am from is irrelevant. Its where I've been. In Vegas and in Tunica I can guarantee that a 20 yr old will not get kicked out. If he acts like a 10 yr old though, they will take notice and it will go downhill.

    My original advice still applies though: if you hit anything over $1k get someone else to claim it.

    Only take the money you're not worried about losing. Chances are you'll lose it, if not good for you. It's fun when you're up, but can go down in a hurry.

    It's not called Soaring Eagle. It's called SavageLand.
