Do you dream about gambling in your sleep? Ever had a gambling nightmare?

In my dream last night, they had carpeted Fremont street and moved the table games out into the middle of the street. At the craps table, there was a dispute amongst the dealers-- the stickman called the roll "Six!" but the other dealer insisted it was a hard 8. (It was a hard 8.) The point was 5, and no one had any money on the 6 or 8, so the dispute was irrelevant, but it made for a weird scene. The stickman was stubborn and wouldn't admit he was wrong. I don't remember much else about the dream, except that Fremont Street looked very clean and the cocktail service was excellent.

I've logged in many hours at blackjack and roulette, and yet all of my dreams seem to occur at a craps table. Interestingly, I never dream about big wins or big losses, just playing the game.

I voted that I regularly dream about gambling, but that's only when I'm on a gambling trip where sleep is less important to me. If I've been playing Blackjack a lot on a trip, I'll usually dream of continuous shoes. Mind you, the outcomes are about the same as what they would be on a table (Like I don't get a huge number of 20s in my dreams, I bust most of the 16s etc.).

Occasionally I have poker dreams too, though those are less frequent. I'm a very active dreamer though.

I've had a very similar dream, except the table was in a run down parking lot.. I was throwing, and the dice flew off the table, bouncing a dozen times or so 20 yards away and the stickman CALLED THE NUMBER, it was a winning number too. That was the first one. I've had several dreaming about playing and winning money on dice, but nothing crazy, just that I could comfortably take money from the table by rolling lots of numbers.

I play at some local game rooms that use very old machines called Pot O' Gold, that are multi-game. I usually play the Keno game that has a "superball", where if one of your numbers is the last one picked by the machine your win is multiplied by 4.

I've dreamt about seeing all my numbers all light up, one by one, and getting the superball too. It's not that I've never done it when I was actually playing, but for some reason in my dreams I always win a lot more.

I always seem to have a dream where I hit one or more jackpots in high limit video slots. Then later I wake up and say "dammit!"
I do not play often in real life, but I do watch my family play frequently.

Never had a dream where I'm actually gambling. I consistently have dreams where I am walking in and through some exotic casino with bizarre attributes like glass walls and ceilings and beautiful decor. It's always located on a beautiful beach. This is ironic considering the fact that 99 percent of my live gambling takes place at the Las Vegas Club and the Four Queens, sigh, FML.

I have a recurring dream (just had it last night) that
my wife and I are in Vegas and we forget to gamble
until an hour before the plane leaves. I've had this
dream hundreds of times. We do everything except
the thing we came to do.

Back room video poker place? These used to be all over NC, SC, GA, and AL. I actually have one in my house.

Last night I had a dream about hitting it big on a $5 slot machine. I remember the attendants coming over and paying me out in hundred dollar bills. Then I woke up. Yes I do dream about gambling all the time.
