Just giving this thread a *bump* as there are still issues with email notofications. The site has recently had a complete software update and the settings appear to be correct so I'm assuming it must be a server issue.
Pete/Alex, any chance you could take a look please? Thanks very much.
I think, you're just looking at the negatives. Fair enough, I wouldn't recommend going by yourself and I would recommend, those who can't control themselves, to leave the bank cards at home, but really it's certainly not as bad as you make it out to be.
Few times a year, I go, with various mates, we normally, have a meal, some drinks, watch footy on the big screens, or sometimes, there is a act on like a singer or a comedian, what's not to like about that.
At least, it's a social night out, in usually nice, clean, comfy, airy surroundings, the food is generally very good, the drinks cold and not unreasonable priced. Certainly beats some dingy arcade or pub, with chavs telling you what to do or thinking, if I win, will I get my winnings, because of the machine running out of money.
In fact you don't even need to gamble, for it to still be a nice relaxed evening with friends and family.
