It's addictive probably because of the thought that you can make easy money. When you lose, you think you can chase your losses, and be back in the green again, though it never happens (pretty much). It's also based on greed.

Human greed has been around from time immemorial.
I am sure there are references to gambling in the holy books of all religions.

I'm also don't know why gambling so addicted, make us want to back to gambling site. but i think it's because you can earn easy bitcoin here but also you can lose your bitcoin easily.

I don't think anyone can make easy money from gambling but everyone think they can make easy money from gambling that's why even after losing many times people still will go to gambling sites to try there luck. This is the main reason (money) for people to get addicted to gambling.

i only know one bible verse that refers to gambling which is 1 Timothy 10:16 that says "the love of money is the root of all evil" something  like that (can't remember the complete verse). pretty sure there are more verses in the bible about gambling. i don't know any on other holy books.

Coz being greedy is human beings' nature! We always want more never admit loss! Unless you have strong discipline to yourself, and find a good way to kill your spare time to get rid of gambling mindset.

Yes that is completely true. Greed like Jealously is a very powerful emotion and if you let it get to the best of you there can be big concequences. Especially when it involves money.

I don't know why but I always get a feeling to gamble, after then losing my money, I quit for some time and then continue, but I know I will lose my btc Sad

Why is it so addictive?

I don't know why gambling is addictive for some people but I believe that it has something to do with their personalities.  Some people just have an addictive type of personality.  They often trade one addiction for another and can't get away from the behavior.  That's just a personal observation.  However, here is an article from the "Scientific American" that might help:  http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/how-the-brain-gets-addicted-to-gambling/

Well, wouldn't say its that addicting. People tend to do it when they are bored/depressed/angry , while knowing they will loose, not gambling, just giving away money. I'd say consentrate on other things during the day and you won't find a minute to gamble

The Bible has references to gambling but not in a negative way.  They left it to chance when they were forced to make hard decisions.  Casting lots is a a form of gambling and it is mentioned several times in the Bible.  It used to be a common practice to determine who had to go out and do what act.  Here's one citation but there are plenty more:  1Samuel 14:40 - 42.

I don't think it is addiction to everyone.

Just stating that gambling is addicting generally doesn't seem right

some gamble for the fun of it .... some to earn money fast.... some to lose :p .

it might become an habbit/adiction because people always think there is a hope to win something big someday and cover up what was lost.... HOPE

Being addictive is part of it I think, It's better to avoid trying at all if you didn't try it already.

Yes being additive is gambling's nature and getting addictive is human nature. That's the reason every gamblers are becoming addictive after some period of doing gambling. I believe there is no prevention to avoid getting addictive. Some times good emotion control may give us some better result but not all the time.

Greed is mostly the primary driving factor, for some it's just boredom ...they play to get away from it all, and it gives them a bit of a adrenaline boost every time you win

something. Most of these operations are configured to pay out in small burst... it gives you the "hope" that you might hit it big soon... some people do, but they keep on

gambling and the house usually win in the long run. It's all smoke and mirrors... and the adrenaline needs to be fed.  Roll Eyes

People like the rush of winning money even if it is horrible odds. Look at lottery odds are stacked against you but you still gamble on it thinking the amount you pay for a ticket vs what you can win

For me, gambling and winning from gambling is a great adrenaline rush.money makes the world go round and we are all essentially gambling for money.we all want to win, and playing gbling games there is always a chance for that big win. Winning can be addictive.

Why is gambling so addictive? Because majority of gamblers don't gamble to win - they gamble so they can gamble the next day. The thrill of fighting against the odds is so addicting.
Also people likes to buy hope for credit, not to mention that dollar won is better than dollar earned.
