I have read other posts that claim that hubpages does not permit hubs on gambling. Does that also include the forums?
My question really isn't about gambling, it is about casino's in general. We just had a new one open here in Michigan, and the attendance has been so incredible that they actually had to close the highway, because the exit near the casino was at a stand still.
They also had a report on the local news that the casino was being watched by the county fire marshal, and they were counting everyone that was going in and out. With something like 500 people waiting outside to get in. That's really bad!
I personally wouldn't have waited to get in. Just wondering what everyone thinks about it.
There is a casino 4 miles from where I live.
Haven't been there in over a year.
casino, gambling? OMG somebody said those 2 words, I'm so telling OMG!
I used to love going to casinos. Even if you had no money or didn't want to play the tables, you could watch while eating the free sandwiches and coffee they used to give you. Better than stopping off at a cafe where you had to pay!
I've never seen free food at a casino. Well, the one in Manistee gives away bags of popcorn, and they give away free soda, but not food. The popcorn is so loaded with salt all it does is make you thirsty. Once you drink enough of the free pop, you spend a good portion of your visit in the restroom.
They do this, because they want to keep you moving. If you spend enough time at the machines, you might eventually find one that pays off.
I've only been to a couple, but both give free (alcoholic) drinks. Drunks will spend more.
They don't give out free alcohol at any of the casino's I have been to. I think the only time I ever saw them doing that was on Halloween, and New Years.
They also gave out Champaign.
Halloween at Soaring Eagle in Mount pleasant was a trip. It was halarious to see guys dressed up as playboy bunnies playing the slots. Mixed in real good with the priests and guys dressed up as nuns! There were some really cool and wacky costumes for that.
I live in a area with 2 casino's in it, they have never offered free food, they do give free coffee/tea but only if your sitting at a machine or table, if your just walking around you have to pay for it...These 2 casinos are always busy, funny thing every time I go, which isn't all that often I never win anything, so are all these other people winning or just losing?
I've dealt Black Jack, Roulette, Pai Gow, Craps, Poker, Let It Ride, and numerous other games in casinos. I still work as a dealer sometimes. Good money.
I have never gambled and have no interest in gambling. There's no way I would risk money I worked for on a gamble.
Many people love gambling.
Absolutely beyond me. I have no understanding why anyone would want to lose their money.
Not so much. Many of the dealers are just gamblers in disguise. Coincidence in the gaming environment is fascinating, though. I've never worked in a casino where 'inhouse' cheating takes place, although I've witnessed players taking the house.
Yeah, that's usually the reaction to a new casino. The casinos near us in RI and CT have really felt the recession and have laid off staff. So they aren't as recession proof as once thought.

In the past I relied solely on Adsense to earn income from Hubpages, however this year I was able to finally open a PayPal account, so I signed up for the Hubpages Ad program. As expected, I saw a drop in my Adsense...

It's getting tougher for Bum Marketers to promote certain categories. I totally understand why sites like Hub Pages and Squidoo have to reign in certain topics because of deadbeat spammers who just want to throw a bunch...

In our most recent product review lenses, the Amazon product was the featured intro. photo. Can we continue to use those Amazon product images as our introduction photo or do we need to change them?

So, I understand that the question-answer section is to inspire hubs, BUT it feels a little disingenuous to use the information everyone provided, especially when that information would fit nicely in a list. I...

Do you more experienced Hubbers believe writing about controversial topics like politics hurts or help your page traffic? For example, if you disagree with someone's political Hub, will you not visit their other Hubs?
