Gambling addiction is usually one of two things. Either the knowledge that you've won before, and can win again, with the same ease, or the "need" to recoup your losses.

Either way though, that's a horrible mindset to be stuck in.
IMO, gambling addiction causes either by your greediness or like you said, to recoup your losses.
But I gamble because I am addicted with their "entertainment". Embarrassed

Life sucks.

Yes you are very right in learning about the trick play gamble.  Grin

Every gambling should definitely know gambling was first, where we will have a chance of winning and where we have defeat (the strategy).
If we already know the strategy is certain you will win big and small possibilities to experience major losses

Yes, When you gamble , there are two things, either you win or you loose. Now see, if you win - you want more and
more and endless . And if you loose you say okay let me recover my loss and then I stop. This keeps on going till you seriously start feeling bad or nothing left to deposit into gambling.

Gamblers like the kick. A kick to win everything in 1 moment.
They play for it. and keep playing for it, till it happen. Most of the time they forget that all the time they are playing, they are losing loads of money, which makes the house very happy.

Because most gamblers always have confidence that they will win the next game, but of course this is impossible to do.
If they lose money, they play again in order to recoup their losses. And many of them believe that they will win back money that they lost.

Yes addictive nature of gambling makes people to have their own reason and it is in no way uncommon as we are humans, after all.
It's one of the many human weaknesses. It is as natural as we get addicted to any other thing in life. The desire and chase after 'winning' specially money, appears to be the main cause.

It is very simple to understand that the reason of getting addicted to gambling when we practice something for longer period and repeat it again and again we get used to that.People place bets sometimes to win more and other times to recover their losses and finally fell in addiction to gambling.

This is pretty much it. Winners are never satisfied. Losers are always chasing. Definitely a dangerous mindset.

Greed is ethernal, you're right. People just can't settle with anything less than everything. That's to a certain point what makes it so interesting,
but not everyone is expecting to actually win when making big shot rolls as there is more excitement in rush it gives you than in anything else.
You just need to know your financial limits is all.

because u want to win, but  always lose,
 and when u want to recover u lost but got worse Smiley

not only lose that makes a person become addicted,
win and profit in gambling also makes a person become addicted,
when someone wins gambling, he would gamble again make a profit now significantly bigger, it's human instinct
I agree with you because human nature is always not satisfied

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?

For me,its become addictive after i won some free money from it. As example,i use 10 dollar,then i won 100 dollar. its mean i already won 90 dollar, an extra money. Then, the other day,i will keep gambling and lose.But gonna continue for it after a fews day. Its so fun and interesting,plus if the site provide a such beautiful and nice game.
