Gambling, not gaming please
« on: March 20, 2017, 01:33:21 AM »
I am so tired reading/hearing various casino ads calling it gaming instead of gambling. Gaming is for the younger loons at home playing video games for hours on end (lol).

I know why they (casinos) dont call it gambling, it sounds too addicting or bad for society etc.

The political correctness pisses me off I guess. Who refers to roulette as GAMING? What a damn joke!!!

I don't know why but I am fascinated with the word "wagering" :D

I like the word "punting"

Go on, take a punt. :)
