I'm a mostly honest sort of asshole.  I'd split the winnings with him if that $20 hit.  1/2 to him for funding the attempt and half to me for travel expenses and fetch and carry.

Of course, if I hit big on my own money and came back and told him his $20 didn't fund the haul then it depends on what sort of asshole he is and what sort of asshole he takes me for.

Because of just that sort of possibility I would NOT take the money in the first place.

well one would hope family or a real friend would know you would not screw them, so if their 20 did not win, but you won off your own money, then it should not be a problem.

Now if it is just some random guy at work, I probsbly would not do it.

I make the same bet for myself, so that way we both win.

A $20 bet at the roulette table is just $720.  That's 2, maybe 3, hands of poker.  Not enough money to be a dick over.

I'd fork over the winnings no matter how badly I want to keep it.  Of course, I might ask for a favor in return, too...

HA!  MY family and friends know that I would screw them!  If you're so stupid as to hand me $20, it's gone!  Vanished!  Drank away!  Spent on a lass!
