I'm into horse racing and find it interesting to watch the races and research the horses etc. Something for fun, something to do. I place a couple of small bets in Will Hill every other day. Probably couple 2-3 pounds maximum. I win I lose.


I'm I wrong?? Some of my friends think it's a pretty disgraceful thing to do. And I enjoy winning but with small bets it's not going to hurt me if I lose.


It's more of a hobby. Lots of my friends play on the roulette machines but they are not for me.

As long as you're fine with doing ti, and it's not an addiction. Theres no harm in gambling surely.

If it's a hobbie that you enjoy then stick with it. They're probably jelous that you can sometimes pick winners and beat the bookie.

I personlly don't bet on the horses and prefer to stick to gambling on the footie and playing stud 8 poker in casino's as it's much more in your control.

There's no harm in what you're doing at all. A few wee bets, you're in control of your actions, it's hardly an addiction. That would be the only worry.

Every now and again my dad would ask me to pick a horse and we'd put a few small bets on. I went into the bookies with him once after I turned 18, just to say I placed my own bet. I'd only study them for the grand national or something, but I'm crap at doing it. It's a bit of fun.
