well if you are playing against the house then you will lose it all in the end but not if you are on the fair platform and have an equal chance to win as the house.

Yes,I agree on that one but,  that is a smaller%age of ppl who do that. Most of the gamblers want to make more money and they back themselves up. Some of them win but most of them lose. I generally gamble because I bet on sports and it makes the sport much more exciting when your money is on the line. It is fun both ways. Even if I lose.

this feeling occurs because it occurs because it was not originally drawn up any strategy how will the game and how to build your actions during the game, and lost, remains void and no further intentions, which in turn provoke negative cravings or dependence, negative effects, if not the opposite will happen major to win and fate does not smile upon you, although I think that is good luck in life and nothing to do but to find your day and win! but winning is not so easy, and look for a win already raises it to the heavens, to keep the balance and not to burn then glory )

Gambling is addictive just because of more time we spend with it. The reason for spending more time must be greed. So, greedy people gets addicted to gambling.

Its greed on money and greed on the feeling of winning. If you have either of the two while most have both, you surely will get addicted.

No, wrong. Because there is no such thing as "gambling gives us more money in the beginning". But eventually you will lose it all.

Because when winning you'll get an adrenalin rush or some other type of rush (forgot the name). That feeling is addicting.

This is why it's addicting for me. The money is good when you win, but the rush feels even better.
Most of the time it's the sole reason I gamble.

it's a common and classic trick of the houses, let newbie win some at 1st like a bait till they into it, guard down, lose control, become addict and then easily take their money away. like drug dealer give free drug at 1st and the victims will be their slaves forever.

Indeed. But I'm not sure if it's similar to drug dealer though, since I'm not a drug addict.
If you win more than your bet amount, then you should stop right away. Well, if you don't want to lose any profit.

Are you saying that house is manipulating games in order to catch into a web new gamblers? It is hard to imagine we we think of some known and reputable casinos.
For this purpose casinos are rather offering great promotions*: like free money for gambling, no house edge for some time or happy hours. It is usually sufficient way to catch new patrons.

no, i didn't say about web. i said it's classic, i mean it's existed for long time, as long as gamble exists.

So, you will only stop gambling after you lose thrice consecutively? You should really stop once you are on winning strike, IMO.

Agreed with you, its always good if we are winning something. once you won some money from gambling then you will gamble again and again in the hope of wining more and more money. This is one of the reason of addiction towards gambling.

I do not know, gambling such as taking drugs, there is something that draws us back to play, even those who have stopped though, maybe it's because it makes us more excited when to play because in gambling there is something very interesting for players  Grin
