The most adictive gambling are te progressive slots, it's basically all I play lately if I want to gamble some extra BTC money that I may have and I don't plan to hold or invest. You start with a little bit and go on a rollercoaster with ups and downs, sometimes I was up 1 BTC from 0.1 BTC but ended up with 0 because I was too greedy.

Every time a block is mined, a certain amount of BTC (called the subsidy) is created out of thin air and given to the miner. The subsidy halves every four years and will reach 0 in about 130 years.

The prat about gambling that makes it so addicting is probably the part that lets you walk away with large amounts of money, with a fair amount of risk and almost no work involved. There are people out there who make a living on gambling. As unusual as it sounds like.

gambling is not addicting at all, i usually dont like to play it as i nearly every time lose everything i have.

obvious, gambling is very addicting because it can make all the people in it are addicted. even a lot of people were wrecked because of gambling.

very hard to break a habit so if it has become a habit, it is going to be quite hard. u need to find another hobby or entertainment to keep u away,.

yes it is difficult to stop when it has become a habit and severe addiction because gambling.
and all depends on ourselves, those around and your family. to help quit this bad habit.
No one can help anyone quit gambling except you, if you decide to quit gambling then sure you will. even if one gets addicted bet small amount it won't hurt.
Indeed, you have to believe in yourself and you have to control yourself and keep yourself away from gambling.
If you believe in it it should be no problem, you can also ask a relative to help you with some social control.

People like it do it and that is pretty normal. But they should know that the money that they lost is already wasted money and that is not good.
They must play with some small amounts and that is the only good thing that they can do. Or just not gamble.

Taking gambling as a fun will be good solution to make gambling not so addicting.
But how long we can simply keep on talking about gambling achievements or losses occurred with gambling. At some certain point we will get bored and may go in search of playing gambling again.

Gambling is so addicting because these people want to make profit and are so greedy that they stay doing it till they make it their habit.
Also another group is addicted due to the fact they enjoyed it and want this feeling over and over.

which makes gambling becomes an addiction is a lack of awareness of every human being against the dangers of addiction. this can be prevented with fellow remind each other.

at the point a gambler gets bored, he can quit gambling, not necessary going further. mindful people will do that. life is full of interesting things so it's better stay with gambling just a little while and moving on.

People just love the excitement that comes with gambling and of course that you can win some money.
And if you have tasted success in the past with gambling it's very hard to stop.
Yeah thats the only reason why addicted gamblers love it, because they have ever won and they thought that they are pretty luck in gambling, so they always gamble even they got lose after that.
Yes the addictions will give you fake confidence. The gamblers blindly believe and they themselves assume as a professional gamblers to keep on repeating their one time winning. The fake confidence is resulting into gambling addictions.

"habit" agree it is the key word, a lot of people who do gamble on every day, it makes them become accustomed to the gambling activity then they realized could not get out of gambling

I will say in these words when someone keep winning or loosing both provoke the player to keep playing to win more if he is winning or to recover as next hand can be winning hand and he will not only recover his losses but also will make some decent amount.this practice of playing repeatedly makes person addicted to gambling.
Very good point, Its a double edged sword that cuts and cuts.

I'm agree, but actually not all of gamblers like that, some of them finally manage how to make a strategy before bet or learn the way to avoid big loss, and I prefer calling them as a experienced gamblers instead of professionals.

How can progressive slot is the most addictive games? That games is the easier game to stop because after you hit some winning you will sure get some profit and it can stop by itself without us to concern the result but if you playing dice you can't stop because dice games will slowly increase your balance and if you set on auto on loss or on win this will make you suffer more of the loss

this one is good question
we are greedy people in nature so get some point on that
why we are greedy cuz we always want more
Thats true that they are not satisfied what they had  so they play and to have some fun and to double or triple their money and it turn to lose.. instead of earning it in a job they are want to gamble their money to make a huge money but resutl lose..
So thats why they are addicted.
Plus there is a thought circling around that with gambling there is a chance to boost up their income to 100x without any hard efforts , and so to achieve that target then continue till lose all his/her wealth.

gambling is so addicting because of the money you can win with it. the risk alone makes the game interesting and thrilling so that is a bog motif for getting addicted to that thrill.

Some lazy people who do not know how to earn their living and also do not dare to work for their earning so they start playing games to try to earn some money which is also a factor for addiction.

Most addicts are stuck on the theory to recover lost they will continue to play with the same goal of recovering lost they do not realize that their victory will not be able to cover the defeats and losses. because the losses would be even greater than profits

Most people like gambling, and that is quite good because you can get some a lot of fun from it and that is good.
But they must also realize that if they will lose that it is all gone money and some people dont realize it and that is bad.
They think you can earn some fast money, but that is not true.

You can certainly get a lot of fun toward gambling but it can also cause pain and hardship and sometimes someones life, because instead of fun there will be risk and anger towards gambling
