Some people say bad advertisement is never bad. But in this case this gives an excuse to governments to takes actions against bitcoin...

You think gambling will force governments to fight Bitcoin? They don't care about gambling that much because it's the private sector. What they care about is money being moved in and out of the country without their knowledge and used to buy weapons and finance crime. If the latter won't force their move against bitcoin the former most certainly will not.

You have to just cut your losses and forget about it. The best way to avoid losing coins by gambling them away is not to gamble at all. The temptation however may be too much, so you have to keep your coins safe.

Gambling isn't bad, but you need to know your limits. Don't gamble with money or bitcoins that you need. Put a stop loss level. Gamble only for fun not to earn money.
I know people that earn money with sports bets, but i know more people that looses btw or money betting.

That's actually the worse way to gamble. And casino's love that. Because they know that people get emotional after losing money and they hope you bet more and lose it all.

Exactly i got very angry when I saw my coins disappearing and i had two successive losses with bitcoin and other with the altcoin , hmm i can't loose fourth time in a row so i will try and recover it all... Boom i lost it all!
Huge mistake that I will try to avoid it in the future, hopefully i didn't have too much.
Thanks for your response people  Smiley

Gambling is inherently bad. All long term gamblers loose money in the long run. Don't tell me there's such a thing as a professional gambler. Professional gamblers are in my opinion professional losers. Even if you're the best poker player, you're not always going to hit the straight  flush. You can still bust on a hit. It is too possible to lose everything on a single hand.

Signatures? How about learning a skill... I don't care either way. Everybody has to make a living somehow.

Nice sig you got there.
I'm just doing that to make some extra money. All casinos in my country tell their players the same thing. It may be different in the US but I do not live in that country. A portion of casino revenue goes to the government.

So gambling isn't that bad, since you earn money from it. You don't like to gamble yourself, thats ok, no one has to,
but you're still part of the system and telling us "gambling is inherently bad." while wearing that sig just is pointless.
Maybe you should change it to something like that:


███ ███ ███ CASINO     Gambling is inherently bad.

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... it sucks. Like drugs you should not try it.

But after you try it you will addicted to it but drugs will let you end up ending your life quickly but gambling sometimes you can win a lot from it so gambling is more better than drugs  Grin

This happened to me less than 1 hour.
I used to play dice with a random altcoin, didn't notice that it changed to btc, hell yeah lost twice about the 1/3 of my balance (it is not that big but hell).
Hmmm i had to recover what I lost, after 2 minutes lost all my balance.
That's why I hate gambling (used to do it with free coins only!)

But with only free coins you wont get big cashout? And mostly you wont satisfied with it so try to deposit a little bit so you can slowly play it

I take gambling as way of getting happy but not for long time as it is very hard to stop myself from gambling when i win a big. I eventually lost more than i win in total but i don't think gambling is bad. No one can earn without taking risk that implies both in our daily job as well as in gambling.

   Provably fair DICE, SLOT and BLACKJACK

Gambling... it sucks. Like drugs you should not try it.
both are completely different activities ,you are harming your own body by drugging and you dont intake gambling ..loll ,worst situation would be you ending up losing the money.

But with only free coins you wont get big cashout? And mostly you wont satisfied with it so try to deposit a little bit so you can slowly play it
many people just play for fun and so they play with free coins and get satisfaction.

Gambling isn't bad, but you need to know your limits. Don't gamble with money or bitcoins that you need. Put a stop loss level. Gamble only for fun not to earn money.
I know people that earn money with sports bets, but i know more people that looses btw or money betting.

Gambling is inherently bad. All long term gamblers loose money in the long run. Don't tell me there's such a thing as a professional gambler. Professional gamblers are in my opinion professional losers. Even if you're the best poker player, you're not always going to hit the straight  flush. You can still bust on a hit. It is too possible to lose everything on a single hand.
Yeah, I prefer call them as experienced gambler instead of professional gambler. But at least an experienced one could make better decision in gambling with his experiences than a greedy gambler, right? You don't need always to hit straight flush even royal flush, its enough for just make good moving in game.

I completely disagree with this statement.  There are professional gamblers, look at Poker tournaments.  Many of those guys have made millions playing Poker, and the thing I think you are forgetting, is Poker is mostly reading someones face, to see what they have/might not have.  I bet a lot of the professionals could come play at a local game or friendly game, and not ever look at there hand once, and win.  There is definite skill in Poker.

This is just an old question, replace Gambling with, Lying, drinking, abortion, anything that might be considered wrong.

Gambling is as evil as you make it.  Yes it can cause addiction, a lot like other things.  What I try to live in my life is a balance, and yes sometimes gambling is in that balance, but you have to be able to step back and really look at things when you are gambling, so you don't become addicted and that you don't lose all your money.
