Do you bet on anything? Sports, poker... so on and so forth?<p>I bet occasionally on sports with a few of my friends and a guy at work. I made a bet before the NFL season started that the Minnesota Vikings would make it into the NFC title game. I didn't think it would happen the way they looked this season, but its almost happened. I lost some money on the vikings during the regular season and also some on the Yankees.<p>what about you?<br>what are your habits?

Apart from the Melbourne Cup, I tend to go with bets like - "I bet that so and so doesn't come to school today - whoever wins is cool"....<p>...I never win those bets.

If you guess 3, you win 10 PLN (about $2,5), if 4 - about 100 PLN ($25), you win 4000 PLN ($1000) for 5 correct numbers and 500 000 PLN ($125 000) for 6, but when it's a cumulation, sometimes the first prize reaches 5 - 6 000 000 PLN
