Casinos - good or bad?

Hey all, Im working on an english project and I would like your opinion on the topic I’m doing.

Casinos - are they good or bad? do they have massive negative side effects to the community? have they helped anyone you know? destroyed any them? have they destroyed you? :smiley:

Basically, just rant/give opinion on/retell a lifestory on casinos and gambling :slight_smile:
Thanks a lot.

Note: this is in no way related to b3nkobe’s thread about his trip to a casino :stuck_out_tongue:

Note 2: you will be credited for your opinion (if i use it).
