    Yep I reckon you're right. If I didn't have a gambling issue I'd be a multi-millionaire now, not just a millionaire.

    Whack your million on red and you've made it.

    Most people I know do that much betting e.g. very rarely or once/twice a year.
    Ok my definition of casual differs from yours. There are people that will place a bet on a weekly basis, there are people that play literally every min of the day for the entire waking day, especially with casino type games.

    There are a surprising number of older people that bet on a regular basis, never understood why.

    Yep i understand but there are lots of different types of betting, you can bet on the outcome of the lottery, freekicks, penalties etc. You can play online casino games, where you may place several bets within one game.

    It's only 'AltGr' + 'e'. But it is unnecessary, so I will drop it.
