Because you can play with money. People take pleasure in it.
They think you can win money. Therefore, they find it fun and addicting.

Its so addicting because its your own money in the game, Plus its sometimes very attractive.
Its risky to gamble but people get greedy of it.
You want to win so bad, and if you lose you think 1 more time again, its starts all over again.

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.
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.

I know it is not just by winning that is why I said Games that involves instant cash are all very addictive even if you lose to much, because gambling has an urge that you want to get that instant money from it, and you even loan or sell your things even if you lose all your loves ones that is being addictive to 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.

the top winners is not always real, or maybe they actually are men of the houses. it happened on manga Kaiji, there is a gamble game, only 2 winners for 10 years, and those 2 winners actually are 2 top bosses of the casino. not sure if it happened in real world or not, but i believe there must be.

Yes we need to try to join those sites which do not scam us. Some sites will show you the real status but there are a number of sites which show fake usernames of the usernames of that who are the owners of the sites. Whenever you join a site try to search its reviews on google. In short if you join legit sites, then you will also earn.

Yup dude even if the odds or the favor of luck is in you gambling is still gambling and addiction to it is real and can attain to ones self. Like every one says about gambling it is fun even if you lose, the way people think the odds of winning is still there even if it is shallow!

Yup and when they beg they will try to loan or borrow to someone, that is when addiction kicks off and human emotion is really something sometimes when a person is stress they tend to play gambling because that is their stress reliever sometimes it can also cause addiction and addiction needs proper care and rehabilitation is needed with this!

Good. But some of us dont think that way. If your mind is focused on getting some money in the fastest way possible, then this is it. You wont even think about the risk. Sometimes we just close our eyes and hope that when we open it we are a winner.

I think trading is not gambling, you need skills to be able to win, not luck

Nope you are wrong, trading is part of gambling too because you set on what price you will buy and sell so without gambling that the price is going up or down you wont even get good profit. There is no need skill to get profit in trading because it just the same as sportbetting you need to gather more information which is strengthen your chance to get into that price so overall trading is also part of gambling which use different method

Yup! gambling is too risky even if it does, many are going bananas with it! not to mention the freebies it has to offer and sometimes gambling site has a faucet to play that gives free btc so even if gambling is too risky there is still chance that you can take away instant money from it!

A friend of mine is badly addicted, so I tried to take a interview of him and tried to find why he feels so addicted, basically what i mainly see a reason behind that is " because I cant control myself when I see a sports getting started "

If trading crypto is a form of gambling Im afraid we are all hooked already. Grin
I think trading is not gambling, you need skills to be able to win, not luck

Nope you are wrong, trading is part of gambling too because you set on what price you will buy and sell so without gambling that the price is going up or down you wont even get good profit. There is no need skill to get profit in trading because it just the same as sportbetting you need to gather more information which is strengthen your chance to get into that price so overall trading is also part of gambling which use different method

how to gather info is a skill, even a united of multiple skills. it can be consider a subject, a job.

A friend of mine is badly addicted, so I tried to take a interview of him and tried to find why he feels so addicted, basically what i mainly see a reason behind that is " because I cant control myself when I see a sports getting started "

So he is betting on sport and not really gambling in gambling sites but like every other gambling sport betting is gambling too, I think in every sports game he would like to inform every that they would bet on the current game happening well I think that is just the way he likes to bet and atl least he's not addicted to gambling sites
