Six Facts About Casino Gambling

Casino gambling will not make you rich but gives you a headache.

Gambling could be the meanest vice that a person could get involved in. When it becomes an addiction it could cause too many problems. Some people say that they could get rich gambling in the Casino, the truth is no one has ever gotten rich gambling. Perhaps if the gambler is smart enough but what usually happens is that the gambler is never contented with what he wins until such time that he will gamble everything he has including his clothes. That’s what people say. Most people say that gambling addiction is worse than alcohol addiction. An alcoholic cannot consume a barrel of wine a day but a gambler can lose millions of dollars a day.

The truth about gambling is that people know and are aware that nobody has maintained a luxurious life once they have become a compulsive gambler. A compulsive gambler does not stop to gamble until his pockets have burn off money. He does everything in order to go back to the table or the slot machine to play and lose more money. If you are wishing to win and become rich in an instant by going to the casino to play, here are truths about Casino gambling that might wake you up.

The truth about Casino gambling:

Fact no. 1

You can win in the Casino. That’s a fact. But the question is; “Will you bring home the money?” Most Casino gamblers do not bring the money home. Or if they bring home some, it wouldn’t be 100% of what they won. Gamblers always want to try for better luck. That money spinning around over their head is a temptation that a gambler cannot escape. He wants more and not just more but the big money.

Fact no. 2

Gambling is entertaining. If you are gambling for the first time, especially in the slot machine, you feel different. Slot machines resemble the computer games that kids play and become addicted with. The only difference is the money involved in slots. The games are fun and the added bonus is the money that pops up every now and then. Sometimes gamblers forget about the money they win because they truly enjoy what the machine offers.

Fact no. 3

Good food is served. I have talked to a lot of people and one of the things that they enjoy in the Casino is the kind of food served. Aside from the fun they derive from the slot machines, they also enjoy the food being served. If the attendants know that you have money to burn in the machine, they flock around you and ask what you want to order. The attendants know whom to serve good food. And they let you burn your money while you wait for the order to come. If you are a small time gambler then you will go home with empty pockets plus a rumbling stomach. That is the trick when you order food in the Casino.

Fact no. 4

You will not go to the casino only once. Once you tried the luxurious ambience and the good food that is served, you will not stop going to the casino. The temptation is always there. You will bring your hard-earned money to try your luck instead of spending your money in a good restaurant. There is food in the Casino and it flows if you have money to burn. So if you are wise then don’t try unless you have great control in all situations which is sometimes very hard to tell if you try the fun in the Casino.

Fact no. 5

You can win a little and lose more. Most gamblers win but they end up the loser when they go home. A compulsive gambler never stops if he has already spent too much money gambling. He wants to win back his loses and he will not stop going to the casino unless he has no more money to bring there. Other gamblers borrow money or they get someone to finance them. Borrowing money in order to gamble is a no-no.

Fact no. 6

The fact about Casino is you can never get rich. If you are still wishing to get your money back one day by refusing to stop gambling, you are creating a greater problem. The more you wish to win the jackpot money, the more money you will lose. You can win a little and lose more. That’s a fact.

Casino gambling does not give you any benefits but a headache and stress. If you want a happier life why try going there? You are only creating a problem that is not supposed to be there. Before you are hooked, stop or better still, do not try.

Where to start?

First off, what the writer calls facts are mostly anti-gambling rants. Why not call them what they are, instead of facts?

Second, the writer does not differentiate between problem gamblers and recreational gamblers. There is a world of difference. She should learn it.

Most people say that gambling addiction is worse than alcohol addiction? Really? Where did that fact come from? Is there anything to prove that "most people" believe that?

No one ever gets rich by gambling? Tell that to the (admittedly few) people who hit million dollar jackpots.

People who gamble get free food while they gamble? When did that start?

Here is a fact -- the writer does not know her facts, and the sophomoric manner in which she presents them only weakens her false arguments.

You give great points in this article. I never gambled too but I have read about people who ended in a financial disaster and needed to sell their house.

My husband and I use to go to the casino's maybe twice a year and took with us the amount we were willing to lose, if we lost. Everytime we would always lose. It was so much fun though. But we never went until all the bills were paid up front first and took what was left over. Yes, this casino gambling can get addictive very quickly. We don't do this anymore, this was years back.

I'm glad you don't make it as a vice. I know some people who have gambled away their properties and it's very sad.

A very old subject post here but seen Larrys post and would like to make a comment on it. Firstly, im guessing the reason the poster spoke about just people who would have problems with gambling is because getting people hooked is what the casinos main aim is. They dont profit by a responsible gambler spending £10 every 6 months there, they profit from people spending £100's in a few hours. The people that would do that are either super rich (a very small percentage of people) or addicted. With gambling becoming a problem it could happen to anyone. Just because someone has been a responsible gambler for 8 years, theres always the chance they can indeed become a problem gambler. Its a fact that gambling is worse than alcohol. For alcohol, drugs, smoking, there is warnings all the time about the health risks. Gambling is advertised as "fun" and on adverts they always talk about the winning, not the losing. Im sure if you asked every "responsible" gambler if they have ever spent more than they had planned to spend gambling, the majority would admit to this. You say people have won big? Yes they have, but how many big winners blew the lot after? Say someone gambles because they enjoy it. They then win £1 million. Would they give up gambling? Its something they like afterall. I doubt it, they will have more money so more of a budget to gamble. There was a guy who won millions gambling, but in a year he lost the lot. Another thing is to win that much money you have to bet quite high to start with, so chances are the people winning big are addicts already (who will blow it all) or people that have too much money anyway. Casinos do indeed use free food and tactics to keep you there. At real casinos they do give free food, snacks, drinks. They also have comfy seats that they know once you sit on you will be there for a while.

Oh... What a waste of time... I got used to play casino games. Especially I adore slots and so what? I play free slots and I love it. Why I should forget about my hobby?
