    addiction aside, the problem starts when you lose money, you start thinking you need to win it back so you lose more money trying

    even when you win money you don't just walk away, you think "I'm on a streak" and keep playing even making bigger bets - then you lose it all

    I have been to Vagas several times, each time I have a set amount of money I'm willing to lose after that I don't play, sadly many people don't or can't do that

    You have the high chance of loosing money than gaining it.

    gambling can actually make things worse and can gradually affect mental health. people who play cards can never develop problem and those who gamble rigorously often have anxiety and depression.

    You can lose lots of money, so you don't have it for what you need.

    Because the odds are ALWAYS against you. The gambling establishment has to pay for taxes, rent, employees, and other costs. The machines are set to give them an edge. AND they have far more financial resources than you: eventual you will run out of money before they do.

    It’s not bad as long as you can afford to lose that money to entertainment. Like if you played slots for 50 bucks once or twice a year. If you think you are going to make rent by gambling Bad or if you do it all the time.

    Its not a bad thing, its entertainment. Its just that some people and dont have common sense to realize gambling can lose money. When I go to vegas I'm assuming I'm going to lose but I'm paying for entertainment, and if I win thats great but I dont expect it.

    Gambling is a very bad habit especially when you get addicted to it.
