26, those machines are everywhere and there's a lot of who will just put the one in. A one off is not harmful, it's when they feel like they have to play on it that it becomes a problem. I wouldn't say OPs dad is a bad parent for letting them play once.

I have a job but if it was my dollar/pound I would request the £200 because it would have been my money not my parents! As parents you are required to purchase things for your kid to ensure that they can live comfortably and survive. When they use their own money for things parents can be happy and the OP gave his parent HIS money to use the slot machine! So therefore it is the OP's money!

Where do you think those clothes OP wears comes from? And the lunch money and allowance and fuel in the vehicles and food on the table and...

Just because he doesn't get the cash doesn't mean he doesn't get /anything/.

Yep... That's some shit my Mom would have pulled before I was old enough. Some parents these days. I feel terrible for some kids... That's why I literally try my best to be the. Best Mom to my daughter. After all, they only deserve the best...!

Don't know age of the OP, but when I was a kid even if I got a $100 check from a friend of the family for my birthday I had to save half. $200 is a lot to give a kid, especially when it should be saved for later. As a kid it sucked, but when I was a college student and had several grand in saving to use incase of emergency I was happy as hell. Good for the parent.

Yes it would be, but the kid isn't old enough to gamble. Not like it was a carnival fair and the kid won a stuffed toy or a video game it's a casino. Plus, I'm pretty sure that's a chunk of it is going to be spent on the kid anyway since they are on vacation presumably.

18, He might not. For all we know, OP could be at home and had just given him the dollar. I still believe that even if this could be considered a way to teach OP, he should have AT LEAST say so.

18, in Las Vegas you can find slot machines in any local diner. You don't know it was a casino. Most US casinos won't even let you in unless you're over 21.
