Most people have strong values about not giving up easily, and not quitting when the going gets tough..
Some people also have very strong competitive drives.
These factors tend to work against gamblers, leading them to keep going until all of their money is gone...

it is precisely the risk is higher than profits. so, it is better to play on the investment that has been trusted sites alone rather than follow gambling

People see gambling as a game I think. They like to do, so it is honest.
But they also think above all that they can get rich.

addicting was happened when you won for the first time, it's such a new exprience, it's caused the feel to get more and more, trust me even when you win you just lose it again
It all depends what kind of gambling you do. I primarily do sports betting (eSports, NBA, NCAA) and I still have yet to go negative with my deposit. I put in $8, now am closing in on $30 by the end of tomorrow if all my bets go as expected. I've had losses, sure, but if you play your cards right you can make some fairly easy money. Just always do your research and don't be an idiot.

Yes. The terms "fast money" is what lures people into gambling, especially if you can do that with ease. Most wins can be achieved within a couple of minutes to hours and because of that, people come back to it and see it as another source of income (which is nuts.)

yes you're right, most people look at gambling as a game, and it can become a habit for them regardless of the risks that will occur in the future

When people think of making quick money, they will always think of gambling. Announcement of people winning big through gambling is what motivates others to try and see if they can also win. Once a gambler, always a gambler. You don't just gamble once and stop.

I guess a lot of people who think that gambling can make money or bitcoin that they have can be increased to twice that of the previous, so they are very keen to try and gamble until their money really adds up

but the reality is the money they are not growing, even the money they are getting depleted and it makes people feel a loss

that would be the start,  you'll bet and wait til it's doubled and win and soon when they fail, they'll try and bet until they fail again, so we'll find another way to get back our losses.. It then results to addiction..  Smiley

This is gambling, although you can get good research but if you are no luck you will still lose that game. You can't determined your game is a won game after you gather so many information because it is not a guarantee match, information is only to boost your winning chance

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?

it is only because of that one time win.

you win once and after that you will be trying day after day to win again but after awhile you are just making up for the big losses that you have sustained!

I think gambling is so addictive because people love to do it. They also think that you can win a lot of money, but that's actually not true.
They realize until later that they have spent more money than they thought.

Not Realizing that they had spent much money on gambling is too much of an addiction towards it actually and people think that if they win just once in gambling they can turn the tables like that very simple logic for a gambler.

Gambling is since the beginning already addicting.

Not because its just fun but because you can make money fast.

The most people are just forgetting their family and friends.

Yes you are very right. gambling makes all people addicted to always do so. Many people have the idea that gambling is quick to get huge profits, it is a statement that is true, But it also has a negative impact is so great, that you can lose all your funds if you do not have an experience or a good strategy for gambling.

Human beings have different forms of addiction in day to day life. Everyone is addicted to an activity that he or she obtains pleasure while doing it. Some are addicted to cigarettes while others are addicted to beer. Some are addicted to sex while others are addicted to gambling. Therefore, it is the pleasure that is obtained while gambling that makes people be addicted to it.
