Gambling is just a game, you should only bet with what you can afford to lose and that's where most go wrong and get greedy or become addicted to the whole gambling concept.

Personally I think it's OK in moderation.

#GAMBA  Cool

It is true that gambling is just a game for just entertaining us but most people want to get more money quickly thats why they just keep on gambling again and again to increase their profit but they didnt realize somehow they become addicted to it and losing all of their money too quickly. This is not a wrong thing when they want to get money from gambling but they should know their limit too

nothing is wrong until you cannot decide how much to lose it, and playing in casino dice games etc., in long run it will be loss no profit, better to do sports betting, the profit margin is less but in long run you can see a good bank roll.

Honestly in sport betting, i'm really betting, but for casino or dice games i just play for fun.
In sport betting, for example soccer, you can analyze first about their history match and formation before make a bet for a team.

You said it right ikydesu: betting on sports requires in any case some study and some research before betting but with casinos or dice games come on those are only based upon luck. Unless one finds a way to beat the system the House always wins

Well I think your saying that when you gamble with your existing money you will never know when the odds is with you right? you will never know if your going to win or lose from your bet, yup! gambling is always base on luck but you can always use your brain when you decide in your actions when you gamble.

Totally agree!
Paracelsus once said: " The dose makes the poison!"
As long as you are totally disciplined with your limits there is nothing wrong about gambling!
You can have fun and enjoy.

Of course, you should only play with what you can lose. But some people have no self control and keep placing their bets without realizing how much they're losing.

Proverbs 13:11 Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathers by labor shall increase.

I suppose it depends on your beliefs. I don't find it wrong if your gambling your own money and know what you are doing, but if it's someone else's money you crossed a line. Even if you win & pay someone back, if they don't know what you are doing with the the money then it's wrong. You could easily lose that money & end up screwing yourself and the other person.

Most parents would get mad if they find their children gambling, especially under 18 which happens a lot these days due to the vast amount of sites online that allow just about anyone on them.

Gambling can be seen as a drug.
Addictive & you can't really get enough.
If you are addicted, you always want more.

If you're doing it for entertainment with small amounts, or you can make the money back and know you won't need it then sure maybe once in a while for leisure is alright but if you plan on gambling every single thing you make on these sites then it's wrong.

Whatever you guys decide, good luck. May the odds be in your favour Smiley

I don't think there is any wrong or right in this, just pure luck and maybe a slice of strategy.

It's only wrong if you're placing yourself in a lot of debts

Gambling can be fun but it can also be very wrong as you touched upon. Many people who gamble regularly end up becoming addicted and that is just a waste of life as the gambler will be forever chasing losses and falling further in the hole.

OP it is not beneficial to anyone except the casino owner and the few that only play to have fun and gamble within their means.

The same as everything in life, moderation is the key and don't expect to win lol.

Yes it can be fun but only if you're winning. That's the feeling I get with gambling at least. It's only fun when I'm winning but when I start to lose I take a second to redeem myself and if I still have some money left over from the money I set out to gamble with I'll continue after that, if not I quit for he day.

It depends on why you are gambling. If you are addicted, it is very wrong indeed.

However, if you do it for fun and don't really care if you win or lose, than gambling can actually be quite nice to do!

Well said. Do it for fun and you have a good time, while earning some money, but you could lose it too.

So play with small acounts and limit your spending.

This is what I do when I got some extra money left. I play with what I can afford to lose. If I can't afford to lose I just stay home and sit on my money.

Well if you have calculated your monthly income and your monthly bills and your savings. Than yeah gambling is good to do Tongue If you want to waste money.
If I can't afford I just play a poker game that doesn't pay any money Cheesy
why not save up that money? why knowingly throw it away just for a bit of fun, as most people on here say. there's absolutely nothing you gain, other than a bit of time passed. if someone is willingly throwing away parts of their paychecks for some momentary fun, i would say theyre gambling addicts, no matter what they say against it.

I disagree; you are always using some part of your pay check for some type of entertainment, unless of course you are living pay check to pay check.

I do agree that throwing it away for a small rush is fairly stupid, however each person has their interests, and so you can't lump a hobbyist together with an addict. I would say a hobbyist is someone who plays poker with a portion of their pay check every two weeks or whatever, for fun, while an addict would constantly be taking more chunks of their pay check to try and win or recreate the feeling.

No gambling is just a game. A game that you play with real money. With that real money you can lose or win.

So no gambling is not wrong.

If gambling is wrong, then paying insurance is wrong!   Paying insurance is a form of gambling; they just don't tell you that when you sign up for it.  So, you take out insurance on your auto just in case you wreck it and the insurance company is collecting the premiums according to the odds that you probably wont (they take some juice too).  That is the same as gambling but with a different name.

Experience you mean knowledge about the game part of the gambling.

Only fun when your winning is understandable I guess. I enjoy playing poker for the skill involved and nearly always have fun regardless of a win or loss. Time spent with others using skill is fun but we are all our own person.

Its good you set out with a certain amount to gamble with and even better if you actually stick to it that is when gambling is "not wrong" as long as the amount staking is not a huge amount you cannot afford to lose of course or as long as its not an everyday thing.
