Since Bitcoins are currently a bit of a gamble, I was wondering how people who use bitcoin are inclined to gamble in the first place.

Do you currently participate in online casinos?
Do you have investments that are more solid, instead?
Do you play in the stock market and currencies only?
Do you diversify between different forms of investments and online gaming?

It would be interesting to see the results of the survey. Seems to me like anyone who actively invests in bitcoins is a gambler at heart, in the very least.

Personally, I shy away from certain forms of risk, but enjoy participating in others.

seems to me it's quite different. i wouldn't normally set foot in a casino, but i'd regularly invest in risky ventures.

i don't consider myself a gambler at all, although some of my investment decisions have seemed pretty crazy.

there's a difference between speculating on an outcome where you are guaranteed to lose over the long run (casino gambling) and speculating on bitcoin.

True, however, the way things have gone lately, speculating is speculating.

I never gambled online.  I go to Las Vegas regularly (5 hour drive from San Diego), and I love to gamble there.

But BTC has made it so easy to gamble online, now I do it all the time.
