Of course it is wrong! There is almost nothing benefieatial in gambling except from learning how
houses work, what a house edge is and how to calculate odds and house edge, and maybe some probability theory.
After that, you end up owning considerably less money!
Yet some people keep winning.
You don't have to place high bets to keep playing. Some people do it for the excitement and never win or lose a lot. Don't generalize!

Not all gambling games are against the house.

Poker, sportsbetting, event betting, etc. are against other people, and the house only takes a small comission there on the profits.

You can have real edge there. I heard that pro english horse-betters usually earn 50,000-100,000 pounds yearly just by knowing the horses throughoutly.
Most of the time you loose, and it takes lot's of time, money, bets and effort to skill up.

The neutral position about gambling is the same like the positive one. So if is told some win and some lose you will put all money in the pockets of some "good guys" which are the owners of the casinos. Gambling is wrong people. That must be told with high voice and without hesitation. If you gamble soon or later all your money will gone. Period.

So your saying horse racing is OK. You should know how many people lost in these gambling every thing has a equal risks but online casinos are very comfortable can gamble from your home it self.

This is so absurd, why should people gambling on 50% chance if they have 80% or more. I know the payout is not good enough but the winning chance is better than 50% although you must hit a couple of times to get double so it is pretty good to play it slowly

weather or not gambling is wrong or right isnt a question about its fairness, thats another matter altogether, even if casino games are designed for the casino to profit at the end of the day. its a fact that people's lives are destroyed by gambling their life away, its comparable to alcoholism or any other addiction. however, i imagine casinos bring some sort of revenue to the governments that allow them to exist, so not much chance of them becoming illegal.

there is literally no answer if it is wrong or right ,it depends on situation and person gambling..as it was proved very successful and right for HUFFLEPUFF.. also it has ruined many people lives  too.

and +1 for ur rest of the post about government.

You must have a bad coin with you then, and if it was totally random, even that would be possible but would be pretty rare, and are you telling me you had 80 heads simultaneously? Either show proof or go home kid.

Everything has a limit.

Gambling too,

No, for somethings there are no limits, like war and mental illness.

Actual probably of getting that is 8.6736174e-19, so real close to impossible. I'm quite you haven't studied your basic mathematics, which only a kid won't have done. If you don't get that number better talk to someone who actually knows what maths is.

Not true, if I set 98% win rate on my dice games then I win more times than I lose, by far Cheesy

But to win more amount than lose, you have to have luck, and set a lower % rate, to have a bigger multiplier.

Poor guys can gamble too. There is no restriction in gambling, whether you win or lose it depends on you and your luck too so why would poor guy gamble on horse racing when they can gamble on others than have good chance of winning?
