I guess the best way to desvribe 90% of us here is recreational gamblers. There are some pro and semi-pro players and also some problem gamblers
I think most of us play just got the fun of it, hoping for a win but expecting a loss.

This article talks about the 90%:

Sometimes it feels like there are posters here who only see two types of players, the APís who are crushing the casino, and stupid gambling addict ploppies.

But if you ever meet or get to know some people who post here, you will find a lot of different types of players.

As far as APís go, there are a few that do it full time as their main source of income. But much more common is an AP with an entirely different career who is beating the casino to make some side money.

I am absolutely a [very casual] recreational gambler, but I will use my knowledge of gambling math and AP techniques and make that recreational gambling as cheap as possible or free. I think there are quite a few people who do the same.

I would say that probably describes most members here including myself

If this were a poll, I'd vote myself as recreational gambler. And on recent form, I've been spending my entertainment budget :o|
Take care out there. Spare a thought for the newly poor who were happy in their world just a few days ago, but whose whole way of life just collapsed..

On some gambling website someone said something like," If you view gambling as a movie you saw in trailers, thought it looked interesting,and make tentative and loose plans to see it like 2 weeks after it's been released, you are a recreational Gambler.

If you view gambling as a movie you saw in trailers and think it looks like one of the best movies of all time obsessively think about it for a month before it is released and on Thursday Midnight showing, you are the first person in the seat,you are a Gambling Addict."

I'm in another category. I'm in it for a deal. Offer me a free cruise and some promo chips (plus a camped RFB suite and limo) and I'm my way.
