I had a mate in uni who had a habit of betting. He did football accumulators, played online poker, used the fruit machines in pubs etc. Think at one point he won something like £3000 in poker but then lost about £900 a few hours later. Bastard always did it close to when the rent was due to be payed per month, which infuriated me.
Edit: I'll let you off McQueen
