Gambling is addictive because it gives you a potential chance of earning money without doing anything. All you have to do is to win your bets. It is unlike a job where you have to work hard before getting paid.

Indeed.
If there are people who get rich quick by gambling, i'm quite sure he/she will spend all their winning money back to gambling. And it is not a smart move.

I do not know are gambling make people not smart or something. But most of the addicted gambler looks like they really want give their hard earned money to gambling. And when they got lose, they just said they gambling for fun.  Huh Huh Huh

I missed something there

In my opinion, gambling is so addictive because there are to many people that want to prove they are better than another.  The person who walks away is the winner when it comes to gambling, but that does not happen often.  There is always the chance that you will be that 1% that will win big and you want to go with that 1%.  This is just my opinion.

That whole story is true, if people win they say it is for profit, if they loose it was for fun.
I do not know why people lie about that, but the best way is to put my btc in a wallet from where i can not easily spend?

Why is it so addictive?


Keep in mind other addiction like alcool, smoke or drugs. At the end, that's the same thing. Your mind, when you play think this: I'll be able to recover the money that I've lost, so, you'll be conditioned and play all of your money until you lose all.

Why the heck in the world would you believe you will lose your bitcoins at the end of every game? I know this all is purely based on luck but have some confidence.Out of 10 games you will atleast win 1.I recommend you to play one game a day regardless of win or loose.Just one game for the day.This will keep you away from addiction.

It's attractive because gamblers have a prospect to win more money from a small amount of money. It's not addictive yet. It's addictive because our brain like the excitement stimulus. It's chemicals in our brain that makes us addicted to gambling. People can enjoy gambling without getting addicted.

I agree 100 percent with your opinion. Basically our mind set gambling as the easiest way to make money.
And we will always win it . when we play we wont realize lose possibility. Only an expected big winning in our head.
In the end we will realize that's all wrong.

The ability to get rich quick!
I don't think gambling has the ability to make people rich quickly.
It makes people poor quickly.
wrong, gambling is a game of chance, and by that, it is most certainly possible to make a person wealthy overnight. its only that there's a limit to how low people can go (when they go broke), but in a gambler's mind, there is no limit on when they should stop after winning. assuming it would take a lot more wins than losses to make someone fairly richer, its more than likely the person will gamble themselves into poverty.

I have to say that it has to do with the factor of not knowing what will happening and hoping for the best.  I think it would be the excitement of the game.  I like not knowing what is going to happen with the thought that if I make the right choice, I will get more than what I have.  Once I start winning, I just think I will keep winning.  In the end, I normally end up loosing.

The brain registers all pleasures in the same way, whether they originate with a psychoactive drug, a monetary reward, a sexual encounter, or a satisfying meal. In the brain, pleasure has a distinct signature: the release of the neurotransmitter dopamine in the nucleus accumbens, a cluster of nerve cells lying underneath the cerebral cortex. Dopamine release in the nucleus accumbens is so consistently tied with pleasure that neuroscientists refer to the region as the brain’s pleasure center.

Repeated exposure to an addictive substance or behavior causes nerve cells in the nucleus accumbens and the prefrontal cortex (the area of the brain involved in planning and executing tasks) to communicate in a way that couples liking something with wanting it, in turn driving us to go after it. That is, this process motivates us to take action to seek out the source of pleasure.

At this point, compulsion takes over. The pleasure associated with an addictive drug or behavior subsides—and yet the memory of the desired effect and the need to recreate it (the wanting) persists. It’s as though the normal machinery of motivation is no longer functioning.

The learning process mentioned earlier also comes into play. The hippocampus and the amygdala store information about environmental cues associated with the desired substance, so that it can be located again. These memories help create a conditioned response—intense craving—whenever the person encounters those environmental cues.

why is gambling so addicting because the posibility to earned a lot of money is easy but eventually, not always to win, we still have posibility to lose our money,gambling addiction can occur when a person feels that they are in financial ruin and can only solve their problems by gambling so when they've problem they are going to gambling

Why is it so addictive?

I think there are two things. The hope to win big, or easy money, and the rush when you gamble. Even with a good control of emotions there is always a little rush I think, that in the right level will not stop you from making good decisions when gambling.
