Simply because you have the feeling you CAN win, no matter how low the chances are.
This pretty much sums it up for me, you always expect a different outcome, you just expect that "this time will be my lucky time", and you do this a million times and you are still not satisfied even after winning a decent price, I think only the jackpot could make you feel like you are done with gambling for a while.
Precisely, lol. I won hundreds times and I am lucky all the time and thought that if I keep betting maybe I will be richer than Bill Gates. But the last bet of that day pretty much change everything in a click. Bill Gates still richer than most of us.

Life sucks.

Every time a block is mined, a certain amount of BTC (called the subsidy) is created out of thin air and given to the miner. The subsidy halves every four years and will reach 0 in about 130 years.

No it's not. Cocaine affects your body's chemical balance while gambling fools you by playing on your dreams. You don't physically need to gamble just keep thinking about it. It's really easy to stop.

So in other words, it still affects your life like a drug because of the dopamine that makes you come back for it again and again. The effects psychologically are almost similar, imo.

i think gambling addiction is usually one of two mainly things, knowledge that you have won before, and can gain again
You are 100 percent right. People think that they can earn some money or they even think that you can be rich with gambling.
If they win a little they cant stop because they want more and more. And that is not good. Everyone should control themselves.

Gambling is addicted because of the point you can win a lot of money, so you want to win big.
This will not happen of course but that's the mind of the people that are addicted.

They both have psychological effect on a person...  Smiley but gambling is not as bad as cocaine, in gambling when you are addicted, you know that you are addicted and yet you can't get out, while cocaine's result might be like that of a person who never sleeps for one week, he is in paranoia, he can't judge the truth from imagination anymore..  Smiley

People like gambling. It is fun to do. It very amusement and it is a game. People think that you also can earn some money to.
But that is not true. You lose more money than you win more money. They realize later that gambling is bad.

The simple reason must be the human nature. All human usually temp to all attractive things. The most entertaining thing which also provide the promise of getting rich in quick period must attract any common man which may end in addiction too.

Well said. Gambling becomes addiction just due to the fact that of it's easy money making method. We are looking for money making idea when it comes with the flavor of easy task then many people do not want to leave off it. That is the reason they are sticking with gambling and getting addiction to it.

Indeed, gambling is so addicting because of the money you can win with it.
People are getting blind because they see money they can win and they think than can win easy and make profit easy.

Gambling also affects your chemical balance if you have the genetic makeup for it... you are in state A of normalcy then you enter in state B of total addiction when you start playing gambling and so on, so it's really affecting and reshaping your brain in a way, of course not as hardcore as cocaine lol.

u think it too simple and negative, i mean too narrow, that it's wrong. u think about it like a calculation with only one result, but it's actually has multiple outcome.

Gambling is very addicted. I think that is very bad. I hope later that Bitcoin will rise soon, and that more people stop gambling.
Gambling is very bad if you do it. You only lose more money and that is not good. It just makes you poor.
