Probably not because it can be profitable...
Satoshi is no god. He did not come down from the mountain with 10 golden rules engraved in stone for no one to question.

If one gambles against the house edge, one will lose in the long.  If one were to gamble when the odds are always in their favor, one would win in the long run.  The trick to gambling is learning the math.  The one who understands the math best is more likely to profit in the long run.

TIP:  The house always wins!  Don't play against a house edge....it is a mathematically losing proposition in the long run.

I think its perfectly fine if your not doing it in a way that puts you or your familys well being in jeopardy. Responsible gambling can be just good fun and a way to make some pocket money. Whats wrong with that? Smiley

It is wrong enough when you are addicted to this. Because there are tons of jackpot out there and it is really seduce us to keep on playing to get that tons of money so I think that is pretty wrong if you are not in your path. From 10 people that gambling may be it is just 1 or 2 of them are not addicted on gambling

If you get to play and spend more than you are earning through your signature campaign, it should be wrong. I could consider it a sin if you still gamble and yet you are not winning.  Grin
Its definitely wrong it if you are not winning so just stop and consider change of career. Maybe freelancing is better for you.

When everything within your control while gambling then gambling is not a wrong thing.
Due to addictions many people going beyond their control and getting money from loans and investing in gambling which are some examples people go beyond their self control. With this kind of situations we can say gambling is wrong.

It's not wrong, but you won't make any profit in the end (unless you know when to stop, and stop 100%)
Gambling should be treated as entertainment and go in with the mindset that you will lose all your money.

I think it is wrong if you can't handle yourself.
The moment you lose and keep on fighting for your loss, you will become addicted and thus gambling is wrong for you.

Gambling isn't wrong, because you know what you are going into. It's only beneficial to the house though, as you will lose in the long term. You should only gamble for entertainment, and not go in to make money.

Probably not because it can be profitable...

That is not the greatest of rational. So if something can be profitable then it probably isn't wrong? Need I say the wrong one can do and the crimes committed that can be profitable? My point obviously being just because something can be profitable doesn't make it right or probably right,- just possibly profitable.

To me gambling is not wrong when I play so rarely nowadays with the amount I can spare. I see it is wrong when others make threads about losing all their Bitcoin like 50-100+ at that matter anyone who loses more than they can afford and then try to get loans to cover their losses or even worse steal. It is wrong on them and on their families should they have them.

The sooner people wake up the better.

Gambling is so wrong in many ways
- Addiction
- Lose of wealth

But it is good in many ways too
- Betting with friends on game
- Betting for fun on a website

I like betting with friends and betting for fun too. So no for gambling is not bad or wrong.

It all depends on the person that is gambling they can become addicted and then it means it is bad for them.

Gambling not wrong but is the player it. If you can't control yourself to playing and also you cant manage your time to play. I think its no problem if you can do that. Control your self and your time.

The player can make it wrong sure, but in general gambling is wrong since players are not able to resist the tempation for huge profits.
They only see dollar signs which influence their choice poorly.

in gambling you will never be satisfied with what you get and without you realize you become so greedy because of that

It doesn't matter's if you are greedy as hell or not but you should keep track of the loses and if you are comfortable in losing that.
Not caring about any assets and just getting greedy as fuck is not good.

True, if you lose you will bet all your money to restore the lost
if you win, you will continue to double-all your profits, until your money runs out
