    Some people do it as a form of entertainment. What's different between betting £50 on the euro, and spending £50 in the club on a night out

    Very few people are good at it. Dont eb a mug and play fobm.
    For most people its a very bad idea if you lose money, then the only positive aspect is entertainment v losing.
    Certain groups are presisposed to becoming addicted and for them its on a par with other additcion.
    Dont gamble what you cant afford to lose.

    What's worse if you gamble 40-£60 a day and you don't get nothing back or buying expensive clothes like jackets for £80 a lot
