I think its addicting because you see others winning and follow them Sad

Thats the wrong intention... That way you will keep playing, even when you lost your whole bankroll...

You should play for fun/entertainment, not for profit

Yeah you have to play for entertainment if you are unable to win at there. If someone is unable to win at there then it does not mean that he should leave it. It is just a source of entertainment, stay there, play there and get entertained. If someone is without any money then it does not mean he should leave it.

Gambling works on the same lines as herion the patterns in the brain get stronger each time and the brain learns to want/need the thrill to maintain. If you look at a junkie and a gambler the same parts of the brain light up on a brain scan.
Would go out on a branch and say that it taps into the wiring that makes us good at things. To become good you must repeat the process over and over,which makes a stronger connection inside the brain,making the process easier to do each time. If you buy that,you can then see how the brain gets confused when you add in a risk/reward type feature.

Well gambling is addicting because you can win money, its simple as that and when you can win money people are getting blind.
The point is also its sometimes fun to play.




Winning money and taking the profits from time to time is nothing wrong.
The problem is many people become greedy when they had a winning streak.And often they think this will continue.But suddenly they start to lose and want to compensate these losses and at the same time hope the next winning streak.
Sometimes you should be able to accept that you have shit on your hands and take a break! Cheesy

I really would go for the money.
People like money, people like free. To them gambling is like free money.
And thus they gamble to get free money which in fact is very unlikely.

Doubling or tripling your money easily in gambling is one of a kind towards your addiction but if you keep on aiming to recover your loss I dont think that is a good thing to do because most people will never have back their money after playing a lot like that. Only some people manage to get their loss

But I think people gambling for fun is very less compared to gambling for money. So most of the gamblers think they can make easy and free money so they will keep on try even after they lose lot of money in gambling. But in reality it is very hard to make money from gambling.

I am also jealous of people that won hundreds of BTC on gambling sites.. so I always try to bet and see if I get lucky enough.. never happened.

When you see someone to bet and win, it does not mean that your bit will also give you a win. Try to learn about gambling. There require a tricky knowledge to earn at there . So first you play without betting your money so that you become expert at that games.

Gambling can be fun if you have guts and many capital so you can conqueror the gamble and make some insane profit.
But the matter is everybody's luck are different so we can predict our luck everytime

Don't get jealous by others wins, if you gamble like others you will only lose. those who win huge probably would gamble again and lose.(only smart ones withdraw their winnings and never gamble)

Yes, it must be a great idea to be smart, join gambling sites earn there with faucets and other ways they provide for free earnings of bitcoins, and then play with those money, if you are expert already with free games then you will probably get a huge profits. Then just withdraw your money. Withdrawing may prevent addictions.

Because you've been affected by gambling. gambling is the same as do drugs, if you've been using for sure you will always use and it can not be avoided before you feel the negative things from it. For example: you always have the feeling to always be a gamble, but you already know that once you gamble will make you lose and when you lose, you stop and once you have the funds inevitably you will gamble again.

Bottom line if you're addicted to gambling, you should make a good strategy to win your addiction in order to win big, if you're already winning try to divert about other things, such as Exchange, investment, Because it will also get the same addictions such as gambling. But the kencaduan have a positive impact

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?

Well In my opinion and personal experience games that involve instant cash are all very addictive even if you lose to much the adrenaline in getting that instant cash that you want to get will still urge within you and you will be more addictive to it once you win once you feel that your body is finding the excitement in getting instant money again.

And you should also pity of people that lost hundreds of BTC on gambling sites and became broke. I also think those people who won hundreds of bitcoins were probably lost big amounts before hitting a jackpot Cheesy There are also people winning hundreds without losing a single satoshi, they are rare though.

It's not just for winning ,but there are many people still gambling even after they have lost a significant amount of money/coins and are by far more than the winners who get back again.The addiction is cause of easy opportunity to something dynamic but is way to probable in reality.
