Yes, gambling is a sin. But better don't think and talk about sin on gambling, gambling is for fun and no need care about the sin, but if you scare about sin and hell, better you not gambling.

Yes it is a sin because it's a vice.  It involve greed because you want to take away others money as your winning.  It also depends on your religious upbringing.  Even a small bet can be called sin if your conscience dictates it.  It's up to you if you would continue.

Gambling is nothing but winning money from others. so what special is there and why people are involving religions in this gambling really i don't understand. gambling is a game, it made to entertain us so please don't take this very personally. No religious will tell to play gamble it is up to us. if you like you can play or else don't play that's it.

Not really. Gambling should be considered as any other marketplace activities. Whether you buy shares or invest in bitcoin, it is still technically a gamble. The house is simply offering you a fair opportunity to win & lose money.

Be rational when you gamble though.

Well, if you are religious, you will not gambling though, because there is a rule about to not gambling. On the other hand, for people who is not religius, will easily gambling without think about sin.

To me gambling is a sin but on the other hand I'm still playing for my own reason, I don't know the reason why but it's feels like there's something that I can't explain. It's fun? addicting? entertaining? etc...

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.

But the bible does mention gluttony and greed. Often it speaks of it. It does speak of gambling as well. The one story (forgot the name) the man give his eldest son money and not the younger. The elder son gambles and buys gifts and has partied till he has none left.

it is not a sin in my opinion and it is not even a sin in my religion although that doesn't stop it from being legal according to the law. the government and the law seems to think differently about gambling than regular people do.

nothing to see here...

Yeah, it's weird. My guess is that most cases outside of muslim countries, is the result of crony capitalism. I mean, look at Las Vegas casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson who pours tens of millions of dollars into anti online gambling initiatives. Does anyone seriously think he cares about protecting gamblers, and not his empire?

Right, because I see all religions forbid gambling and most patently prohibits gambling is islam. Because islam gives some reasons about gambling one of them because it is so detrimental to the players.

Is gambling OK? Don't bet it! There's not an easy or instantly obvious proof text answer to that question.

sin or not its depend on each people. some religion said it was sin, the other religion not said that. but for me, gambling is a sin, but life is gambling. its like a dice, sometime we are up, sometime we are down.

Is gambling OK? Don't bet it! There's not an easy or instantly obvious proof text answer to that question.

Yes it is 100%, and it is a very bad sin, and if you are into it you should stop and get out of this game, below are some Noble Verses from the Noble Quran:

Quote
"They ask thee concerning wine and gambling. Say: "In them is great sin, and some profit, for men; but the sin is greater than the profit." They ask thee how much they are to spend; Say: "What is beyond your needs." Thus doth God Make clear to you His Signs: In order that ye may consider-  (The Noble Quran, 2:219)"

"O ye who believe! Intoxicants and gambling, (dedication of) stones, and (divination by) arrows, are an abomination,- of Satan's handwork: eschew such (abomination), that ye may prosper.  Satan's plan is (but) to excite enmity and hatred between you, with intoxicants and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of God, and from prayer: will ye not then abstain?   (The Noble Quran, 5:90-91)"

I don't consider it a sin. This is the free world. Let people do what they want with their money and time. If you kill people it is a sin, but gambling? Greed is just a human emotion, it's can be bad, but a sin? Nope.

Gambling is not a sin but if it is done out of greed then it is a sin. When your family has no food to eat because you gamble then it is a sin. When you dont give to charities but you are addicted to gambling is a sin. When you dont pray but instead gamble then it is a sin. Gambling is not a sin when its done in entertainment, not out of addiction, and not eating your allocations for your family and charity, not eating your time for God and Humanity. Its not a sin if its not too much.
