I do agree with the previous statement of just use gambling as a form of entertainment. Just gamble what you can afford to loose and if you win then you are lucky. An avoid getting addicted to gambling, a lot of lives got wasted due to this.

people waste money on entertainment everyday, think of paying for cable or satellite your paying for entertainment purposes, even going to the movies is wasting money on entertainment millions of people waste money on entertainment daily even if you purchased a song of Itunes before you tossed money away for entertainment purposes, but it can only be considered a waste if you weren't entertained by what you did/spent and asked your self was it worth it and came to the conclusion that the money you spent was a waste!

Gambling is illegal in some countries and hence it's wrong for sure. The reason being obvious is that people start getting addicted to this game and then keep investing all their earnings to earn profit. It becomes a habit which is dangerous. Those who have managed to earn profit only are lucky while the others are unfortunate.
can we call whatever we win in gambling a profit? Not that don't I agree with what you've posted and I admit I am not good in english but is profit and winnings from gambling the same?

Gambling can be part of entertainment if you bet within your limits.
If you bet big to earn money, it is very dangerous as the house edge can wipe out your capital.

hello everyone.
i want to know what do you think about gambling bitcoin.. Does Beneficial or more losses?
Share your story here guys!  Grin Grin Grin

gambling is not wrong at all. but you have to keep in mind that you should never keep your hopes up and plan to get rich through gambling because it will simply not happen for you.
you can have fun playing all sorts of gambling games like poker, bingo, dice, sports bet, .... but as long as you don't plan on making money through these systems i think you are going to be happy with your results. and you might even win big time.

I don't think it's a good thing. It's a business that's built by abusing the mental problems of a lot of people. It's possible for it to just be fun, but for many that's not how it is.

Gambling is wrong when it's starting ruin your life but if you can gamble moderately and just for pleasure then it's not wrong. It always depends on the gambler if gambling is wrong or not.

Well i personally know a guy who won 20,000€ on gambling, he played poker and craps and one lucky day he won the big one.

He had good discipline and stopped right there. He bought himself a car, and rest deposited into the bank after taxes.

The keyword with gambling is discipline, but many people can get emotional, if they werent, then they would win most of the times.

Yes playing for pleasure is correct but after once you start gambling very difficult to control it so at the end people will loss more so it is better to avoid completely.

And that pleasure can lead to addiction which will really ruin someone's life.

Avoiding it completely is kinda difficult , just gamble wisely and moderately. Wink

Gambling can be addictive like alcohol  but it should't be wrong to gamble $10 once in a while. The best and safest way to gamble is to only bet as much as you can afford and always play once in a while.

Sometimes human can't control their greed to achieve more and more that's why new bettor try to gamble some and when he get addicted, even his/her family must help him from gambling addiction before going deeper..

Exactly! But this is really hard to apply in real life if you just started to gamble..

First time:
You win/loose $10 (Okay! I must only gamble what i can afford to loose)

Second time:
You lost $10 (Okay! I lost this time... should i gamble $10 more to recover what i just lost? Lets see)

After gambling:
You win $10 (Wow! I just recovered what i lost plus i have a $10 profit! This is fun!)

After that:
You loose everything! (Shit! Why did i start gambling? :/)

This is the short version of every gambler's story! You were warned Smiley

Share your story here guys!  Grin Grin Grin

gambling..well, this really depends.

generally is imho fine to play for money. somebody betting horses, cockfighting or sport matches, somebody playing poker, pool or darts..and somebody playing dice for bitcoin. it is same..until it is for excitement and fun and not for profit and cover loss.

sadly, human nature contains greed and some of us don't know when to stop. money are not on trees but not everybody around is smart enough to realize it. guess why those gambling wrecks are usually handled as stupids even before they started..

So true that can't say contrarily because this happens to most of the people when they gamble.Few people lose at first hand and other see this happening what you explained with full detail.You just can not control when you begin to lose you place even more bigger bets to recover you tiny losses just on hope next bet will be winning one and in the end happens what you told already.

It's not wrong...whether it's a good idea depends, and no, it's not inherently the profitable thing to do as gambling in 99% of cases has a negative expected value (except, for instance, if you play odds). But it's not morally wrong, unless you start committing crimes to feed an addiction for it.
