I’m messing around here on the forums and on a site called playolg.ca (this is not an endorsement in any way) on my pc. This is an Ontario Canada gambling site. I thought I clicked the free mode to explore a game I want to play so I was making crazy big bets (like $50 a bet and using the risky gamble feature). I exit out of the game to try it for real and I notice my balance has largely increased (it was around $340 upon log in). Turns out I was playing the real mode and turned my $340 into just under 17k! What a great and scary surprise!

They should add a banner during free or real mode as to what you’re playing because this is quite dangerous. Had I lost my $340 I’d be pissed!

But...wow, just WOW!

Hey man, that's money you didn't have when you woke up today, so unless you're in dire straights you should spend it on what you want.*

Congratulations

*Although me personally, I'd buy some PC upgrades then with the 100 dollars I'd invest.

Personally... I am somewhat conflicted. 5K would probably be "used" as savings to increase my buffer for a rainy day. The remaining 12K. Using them on the mortgage would make a significant impact there and improve my current financial situation, however investing them in the stock marked might yield much more in the long run.

You've been Blessed. Alway's glad to hear some blue collar guy/woman win money like that,plus to do it honestly. Hope I'm not over stepping my bounds,but if I'd be you,don't make it a habit with online gambling. Happy for you buddy.

Yeah, sadly I don't own a home (California is great in a lot of ways, but housing is so expensive) because those are great investments.

I do invest in stocks and funds, though, I'd definitely put most of that 17k in there. I started maybe 2-3 years ago and it's a surprisingly enjoyable (and productive) hobby. I don't day trade, but it's just fun to move money around and make your money turn into more money.

I still have to come over that getting started hurdle. It's a big one.
