Is gambling OK? Don't bet it! There's not an easy or instantly obvious proof text answer to that question.
I believe that it should be your own choice of you want to gamble or not. it is your life and you should decide what you are going to do with it.

that gambling is a sin, it is in the book at all agamar, but it's your choice if you still want to play

Book at all agamar? What kind of books is that, and what is agamar? Never heard this kind of book before, could you please tell us more about it?
Well, it's a book that is in my hometown, it explains about things that should not be done. therein is said that gambling is something that is forbidden, so I conclude it to be like that. Well, basically gambling is a game that could lead to sin, so do not even try if you have never played

Lol so gambling is a sin because you read it in some book that is in your hometown? that seems like nonsense to me...
There is no such thing as sin or non-sin if you are not religious, and im not religious because I think all religions are man-made bullshit, therefore I will gamble if I want to, but guess what, gambling a lot is stupid, so I will never lose any relevant amounts of money because im not an idiot.

I've heard about gambling being considered a sin in few books that I've read but these books also mention that greed and ambition can lead to sin. Anything that involves the greed to ear money is considered wrong. Gambling can be good till one doesn't make it rule their mind, heart and body and knows where to draw the line.

Yes, it is not a sin to gamble till you aren't doing it against the laws of your country.
In some countries, it's legal while in some countries, it is not. It can definitely be considered a sin if you are investing all your money in it and committing more illegal activities to earn money from gambling.

Indeed, its not a sin to gamble at all the only thing is that its not always very good to gamble because it can be a sort of sin at your family or something.

Yeah true but that can be said that its also a sin to drink alcohol, or smoke cigarettes. I don't think in most religions its a sin except for maybe Muslims.

What is a sin?

A 'sin' to one person may be a norm to another.  Religion aside, most people just view a 'sin' as a burden of guilt.

Defined 'acting against divine law' .......... LOL

Ok god, I won't beat my wife in public.  Now that we're in the comfort of our home, I can beat my property without committing a sin.  But gambling?  Damn, I'm gonna feel real bad about that...  Roll Eyes

Divine law...hilarious...how do people actually believe in this stuff?  Fear of the unknown?  A crutch to fall back against?
I think beating your wife is not allowed even in private by the religions and by the laws of some well developed countries, but you do not know that, In the same way it may also be the possibility that you do not know about the sin with gambling.

that has never stopped anyone from trying to gamble Smiley, especially since gambling with bitcoin was introduced it opened up a whole lot of ways to stay anonymous and still gamble even if you live in US and gambling is not allowed.

This depends mainly on your religion although all major religions consider gambling as a sin, but bitcoin has given to every user of every religion a boost to their privacy so they can gamble anonymously and conduct a normal life apparently. Still don't invest what you cannot afford to lose, don't gamble what you can't afford to lose and even the sin will be smaller this way rather than losing everything, which can be considered a major sin because of the big injustice you are commiting against yourself.

As an atheist myself I don't think the word "sin" seems fit in gambling.
There is no such ideal in testament that you can't gamble or gambling is against their will or gambling is a crime...

Gambling should rather be perceived as a game of chance, a form of entertainment.
It's not a sin by any means.

By The way. I wan't to ask a Similar Question.

Since I'm born as Religion fanatic, my parent taught me that gamble is forbidden and something I must to stay out.
But for me, gamble is objective matter that can be accept by everone's objective

....
is Promoting Gambling and gambling sites is Haram/sin? I mean if I join a gambling related signature campaign and earn money through it.. is my earning OK from that signature campaign?

I think it's OK if you can earn money from sig campaign

Since you claiming to know Islam and I am not a religious guy although I believe in God ,so I have read quite a lot about all religions, and in Islam everything which you earn by promoting a forbidden thing, like interest, gambling, alcohol , pork meat which are all prohibited in your religion, its not OK you should stick to your signature, you are not earning haram with them.

Bible does not say or mention that it's a sin, but Bible mentioned something about love of money or greed. If it's for fun or entertainment I guess it's not considered as a sin.

I agree. Greed is a bad thing for you. Even those of us who are not reading Bible or any other religious book know that. It's hard to not become greedy if you gamble but if you managed to do that than gamble is not a sin, I guess )

Is gambling OK? Don't bet it! There's not an easy or instantly obvious proof text answer to that question.
I believe that it should be your own choice of you want to gamble or not. it is your life and you should decide what you are going to do with it.

that gambling is a sin, it is in the book at all agamar, but it's your choice if you still want to play

Book at all agamar? What kind of books is that, and what is agamar? Never heard this kind of book before, could you please tell us more about it?
Well, it's a book that is in my hometown, it explains about things that should not be done. therein is said that gambling is something that is forbidden, so I conclude it to be like that. Well, basically gambling is a game that could lead to sin, so do not even try if you have never played
In the most cases it is sin to gamble because people will get addicted to it because they think that they can earn some money with it but they are losing more money than the win actually so that is bad.
You have to be really lucky if you want to earn profit with it and that happens not often in gambling.

It will be only sin if you are losing to much money with it and that is because there are still a lot of people that is addicted to it and can be bad for the most.
Because they even be poor of it and that is bad for the most people if they cant stop gambling.
Yes, and on his money, his wife and childrens have the right, and when he go to lose it on gambling then he deny his family from that right, so in this sense we can say that yes gambling is a sin, because denying someone right is a sin.

Gambling is absolutely a sin. It's quite obvious because it is fun to sin, and it is fun to gamble. Therefore gambling is awesome.

I always get fun every time I playing video game, but no one say it is a sin. Gambling is totally a sin if only the gamblers doing any wrong things like scamming other people, betting the amount of money they can't afford, shouting or swearing if they lose, ruining their life, etc.

It has nothing to do with sin. It is just dumb. Investment requires skills, knowledge, preparation. You can gain those in time by working.

Gambling takes no skills. If i were a lucky man then i would have born in a rich family from the beginning.
