I think it is wrong for a lot of people.
People tend to be greedy and gamble with more they can afford to lose.

So yeah it's wrong.

There are two ways you can interpret your question - Is it morally wrong, or is it bad?

The answer to the first question is no. It is meant to be an entertainment. Think of your losses as payment for the experience. If you're lucky, you'll get the experience for free and possibly make some money. But don't use this as an excuse to continue gambling after losing.

My answer for the second question is variable. How strong is your self control? Only Gamble what you are willing to lose. Are you willing to pay (lose) thousands of dollars for a stressful experience and the chance to win more? Can you afford to pay it?

It depends on your moral viewpoint. Some people are religious and think that Gambling is a sin or "haram" as the Muslim say, so in their worldview gambling is forbidden. Personally I think all that matters is how much you can control yourself. Gambling in itself is just a game that you can play just like any other game like a videogame, but with real money, and as long as you control yourself and don't put a lot of money into the bets, you can have fun and not make a problem out of it.

Gambling is normal if you play it normally.
I know a lot of people tend to play it like it should be and for them there are no problems

But like always some people are not smart enough to stop and they blame gambling.

You have a solid point here. In many things a minory messes things up for the majority.
Gambling is no different since we see the same amount of users not knowing what they are doing.

Yes it is wrong on a lot of levels.

When you go for the win you will see you will lose and that's not good.
So try gambling without money or avoid it all together.

well its your money so you can spend it in a way you want even if its losing it on gambling games, i think its not wrong at all if you dont play with the amounts of money you need to live or buy food for yourself

I do not see the essence in gambling, when we play do not take the money, because basically gambling is about money hmm  Undecided

It's only wrong if you are playing it wrong.

I play it for fun and stop whenever I think I will lose more.
Or if I start getting irritated. Then I come back 1 day later.

But some people can't simply stop.. I think some people simply shouldn't gamble, because they have a special gene that triggers their massive addiction in an uncontrollable way. In the future we may be able to know if we have this gene with a lab test so we don't get exposed to gambling activities. It's luckily not my case, but some people shouldn't do it even for fun, because what starts for fun may end up in a big mess.

money, or anything of value, is essential to gambling, you cant "gamble without money" - that would be a fallacy, because just rolling a dice (or running a similiar chance-based event) without a wager and a prize is not gambling - its just, well, rolling a dice

if you gamble without money then its not gambling, its just playing a game, also some people find it entertaining to risk money and thats not wrong as they can do whatever they want with their cash

if people get addicted that's their own fault. its not like the casino staff are forcing them to play anything, they willingly walked in and decided to hand over their money and play to lose. but it doesnt stop there, theyre the ones that decide to walk back in with more money to hand over. its bad of people get addicted, but gambling itself isnt bad, its up to the people.

Gambling is no way beneficial to your financial life. It's practically a 100% chance of losing. (Long term, that is.)

Gambling could be in a way beneficial to your emotional life, as it is fun and gets your mind off things that are sad or bothering you.

Gambling could also be beneficial to your social life, as if you make a big win, people can respect you, and your wealth. Also, if you lose alot, people can think you're rich.

I don't think so. i known someone, friend of my friend that he lives from gambling. i don't know how it works but he do it. i think experience make him understand how to gamble smart and has a good mental.
