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!
Haha tricked by the parent. I bet they also gave you a speech how they deserve it since they take care of you. Better luck next time.
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.
