Most of the times you lose more than you win
And, what's your point? Does that mean people can't have fun playing with what they can afford to lose?

Thrill/ excitement, the chance to win big and walk away (despite when people tell you "the house always wins), if you play and attend casinos moderately and don't let your emotions control you every time then you can have a pretty good time whilst making reasonable profits.

Because our ideology is increasingly shaped by judaic principles which encourage not only gambling but interest banking, fashion, alcohol, promiscuity, global migration....Our High Streets have been drained of their heritage and culture, in France they still have farmers markets nearly every day in the small towns, here maybe once a week even in rural Gloucestershire. Every town in the land is now the same after 7pm, just the same fried chicken, William Hill. Tesco, Premier and mall culture right across the land. Gambling, cigarettes and alcohol are encouraged yet cannabis and ecstasy are illegal, that speaks volumes.

I don't gamble very often, if I do then it's always been money I know I wouldn't really miss should I lose it.

(Original post by struggler07)
Lol you think losing all your money and friends is fun your living in a dream world
You're comparing the casual and occasional flutter with having a life-destroying gambling problem. This is literally the equivalent of comparing someone who shares a 4-pack of beers with a mate on a Saturday evening, to a full-blown alcoholic.

You really think it's fun losing £40 a day
Individuals don't react to winning by thinking "maybe I'll call it a day and keep what I've won", they rather react by being absorbed by the excitement of winning and say "well, as I have just won, I might as well try a few more times".

This.

I personally don't enjoy gambling myself, nor really understand why people enjoy it. But I don't think it's evil or inherently bad because some people have addictions to it. If I thought that about gambling I'd have to apply the same logic to a lot of things.
