It is really a very interesting question because I'm not sure what it provokes in the brain that it is so addicting. Certain amount of risk I guess it should be rewarded by the brain to conquer certain situations but it's like the brain actually becomes drunk and make you do very bad decisions. Of course not everybody experience it the same way. I've read self made millionaires are extremely prone to losing a good (if not all) share of their fortune.

I thought, gambling is a pastime of most people, because the victory is obtained when gambling was so beautiful, that's what makes people so interested in gambling

Agreed with you, its always good if we are winning something. once you won some money from gambling then you will gamble again and again in the hope of wining more and more money. This is one of the reason of addiction towards gambling.
Once a wise man said, never gamble as you will continue playing and losing, if you win you will play to win more. If you lose, you play to recover the losses

Gambling is not a past time for most people as they do not gamble. Most people who do gamble do it to win big from experience.
I do not know, gambling such as taking drugs, there is something that draws us back to play, even those who have stopped though, maybe it's because it makes us more excited when to play because in gambling there is something very interesting for players  Grin
There is nothing very interesting for players who gamble. Well i speak for myself but would like to know what you think is very interesting for players of gambling?

BTW you both sound like and write the same and if i was a gambling man would say you are the same.

This makes sense. Normally I would say it the urge to win.
But you are right, most sites let you win quick and this gives people hope.
Then they lose, and want to win it back.. and so on and so on.

The possibility of winning big that is why I keep betting. I usually never bet on odds under 2 because the payout is too low and you get only what you put into the bet.
I know there is risk involved but I think that is all part of the addiction of it.

It's true. Even if the chance to win is very small, we keep playing.
While we keep on losing.
In the end we are lost in dreams and hopes.

This is how most people lose most of their money.

Either greed of bad choices make them keep on gambling. In a game where the house wins, that's very stupid.

People get greed when they start to win and there's always another chance to win something

It's that hope that they keep coming back for, to win more and more but instead keep on losing.

I like to gamble and keep on gambing when I am on a winning strike. Whenever i lose more then 3 games. I am out.
But when i am winning, it's hard for me to stop.
yeah you seem addiction, gambling is like that, if you experience victory, you're going to try to obtain greater profits, it was mainstream in gambling

There's hardly any fun or rush in that tho, is there? With big risks come not only big losses , but also huge possible gains.
It's one thing if you're addicted, but entirely another if you find the rush of it amusing, to say the least..

Some people have this kind of fun when they win it no matter slow or fast speed to get it in the end you are still profit if you are not greedy. Rush is everything that you need when you are doing it yolo or may be people tend to rush because they dont want to become addicted to. Minimum of playing wont let you be addcited only some long game become a habit and this will become addict

You're right but not everyone can be calm after a big loss, they start chasing their losses and end up digging a deeper hole than what they were already in. This is why funds management is most essential when gambling. You have to make a plan as to how much money you're going to gamble for in a day and stick to it, whether you lose/win.
