How did you come across gambling & what makes it fun?

Featured Comment

Posted (edited)

Well, let's talk a little bit about gambling shall we?

When did i start gambling:

I started gambling 3-4 years around april when CS:GO Gambling was very huge.

How i got into gambling:

I came across a recommended video that showed someone winning dragon lores and different items through jackpot with a very low percentage, so i asked myself why don't i try the same thing with my $8 skin..?

It went pretty well in the start got up to $50 and ended up losing and got upset about it, hahaha. And that is when ladies and gentleman my addiction began..

What makes gambling fun:

Well, let's be honest we all like making money don't we? But keep in mind gambling isn't just about winning, people end up losing their business, house, and almost everything cause of this.

Gladly, i wouldn't consider myself a VERY addicted person, i gamble when i'm bored & obviously always gamble with money you can afford to lose.

At the end of the day, gambling is all about having fun and wasting time, it's not always about winning money.

Well, your last statement "I gamble when i'm bored " is the reason why I gamble . Obviously you need to gamble with the money that you can afford to loose. The same statement applies to investment too. My gambling story started with cricket betting 5 years back and is going on strong till now.

Damn, that's really sad. I know most of the people with a really bad addiction regret gambling.

Like i said in this topic, i don't consider myself a super addicted person, i just do it for the fun.

But i actually had fun reading your story, thanks for sharing it with me. :)

Haha thats great to see more people who started off with CS:GO gambling. I myself started off there like several years ago, depositing $5 worth of skins and trying it out.

I didn't have my own funds back then, I just used the skins I had won from my CS:GO matches and then deposited. So I played safe and somehow managed to get a little profit. I was never that guy who tried to hit the biggest payout back then. Not that I didn't want it, just that I didnt want to risk too much. So I remember that site being taken down and then I started looking for more and more. Found a csgo poker site and many more that are not functioning anymore after the trade ban. 

Till around a month ago I had only known of these csgo sites and only trusted them and barely heard of others. Then came the VGO sites that I was looking into and found this site from a referal program site. I googled csgo sites but ended up with VGO sites too. Then for my luck someone on the chat mentioned "Stake is better than this" xD Luckily the mods didn't see it but I saw it as soon as I logged in and started searching for this "Stake" since I thought that site was really good lol. Thats how I came into stake and im so glad.

Yeah gambling for me too is all about having fun, testing your luck, trying to make cool strategies work, until they fail xD But nevertheless improving on strats trying to beat the game. I was never about the huge profits, I was always here to waste time. Pretty addicted I must say, especially on Stake since it has so much of stuff to do apart from just gambling. Stake and gambling takes me away from all the other things I have to do sometimes or have to deal with. :)

I don't know why you keep making posts about similar things, just combine them into one post lol. This is super similar to this post:

Back to the topic, gambling is fun because of the thrill of possibly winning. I came across gambling many years ago, when I decided to go to my local casino with friends. Since then, I've been a regular players there.

How i got into gambling:

I was taught on how to play bingo by my Aunts when I was still in primary school. I learned how to play color game on local carnival when I was in high school and I got into online gambling sites like Stake and Primedice when I was on my first job.

What makes gambling fun:

The entertainment you get while playing and the possibility of getting money if you are lucky makes gambling fun.

gambling is not only related to pleasure. Gambling is a disease of society that has taken root in various parts of the world. Initially only testing luck but after one try, each player will try again and again. This is what is called gambling addiction where no one wants to lose. In fact, even defeat does not make them deterrent to playing it. Even though the defeat they experienced has been mounting, like there is a magnet that attracts them to return to the next gambling arena. On this basis, don't be surprised if the gambler never stops.

I think it is mainly the thrilled that can be gained from making risky bets that makes it fun and addictive including a chance to multiply the value of your crypto/money! :D

I came into gambling from when I was young.

I consider betting on games that I'm confident in playing such as Dota, Counter strike, etc.

I loved the thrill while playing, sportsmanship made, money lost/won, andeverything about it. It also boosted my relationships with my friends since I don't always win and I don't always lose which makes it thrilling everytime we play :)

I have been playing gambling for a very long time. I started with one-armed bandits and I always liked the process itself, and also I like the adrenaline rush when you play.

Came accross from a different site what makes it fun is not winning but having a community where people are helpful as well as makes you feel like home.

the very first gambling i saw was a csgo streamer who went to a coinflip site. I joined the site too and turned my 5$ skins into a full 400$ inventory.

So i loved the feeling of winning :D

I first visited a casino 7-8 years ago. my heart won the roulette :) then met pd and stake. it was here that I felt the taste of real adrenaline. Gambling is a great way for me to spend an evening, to cheer up. although sometimes a capricious dice, of course, can spoil the mood :)

Firstly I started betting a few years ago and thats how I also came across gambling. When going to place my tickets, I saw many people play at some kind of lottery that costs something like 1$ a ticket and it takes time every 5 minutes so I decided to also buy a ticket since it was pretty cheap and it's never a bad thing to try your luck. I won 100$ with my first ticket bought and from there I continued gambling with slot machines and sometimes roulette. As soon as I discovered online gambling I stopped visiting real casinos since its easier, faster and a lot more convenient to play from home anytime I want. I have to be honest here and say that I am always looking to make some money when gambling but mostly I do it just because I'm bored or I want to relax a bit and don't really care if I win or lose.

I hited by advertisement and stream. Stake is the best because there are many giveaways, forum, streams, discord. We have all here what we want.
My favourite game hmmm... it's hard to choose. We have 12 games.

Games on stake.com:

Dice -> sometimes i like play if I win but sometimes i don't like if I lose. Every person don't like lose, true?  

Limbo -> it's crazy and funny game for me. 

Hilo -> i love it, hit more or low if correct and more payout.

Keno -> random number, i dont play much it... it's lottery for me. This is my sentence.  

Mines -> awesome game so fun, you can click/draw for example one font, square, wand, disco floor... ❤️ 

Plinko -> it's nice to watch what balls are doing and move.  

Blackjack -> more to think what do must play to 21 max, good game ❤️ 

Roulette -> we have hit number and random number. 

Video poker -> Start give 5 cards and hold on what is good card and try hit for payout :)

Wheel -> wheel give hit payout.  

Diamond Poker -> similar to poker. Just bot game play for me, i click settings only and nothing more. 

Baccart -> i don't understand it, later i will learn how to play. We have many tutorial and encyklopedia in google.

I'm glad that website really. We have proffesional support on site stake.com, i guess #1 number this site! Peoples are awesome here but not all every :) 

Regards!

for me gambling is like looking for pleasure only and as long as I gamble I only lose no more money than this. and also what makes gambling so much fun I feel because there is fear, pleasure, anxiety, mutual surprise when gambling

Hahaha Your story is a copy of mine) I started gambling with betting on csgo teams. I won a lot, but sometimes I won of course)I could not stop... Then began jackpot sites... Wow how much money I lost there... But I won) I Remember with a chance of 5% took $ 1000 I did not even realize that I won, because I bet on the site for the first time) How sad that the next day I lost everything( But it's a passion. With him, you either lose everything or win more... How can I blame myself for not taking all the money

Hey there buddy!

I first came across gambling when I was trying to find out ways to earn free cs:go skins by completing surveys and offers. I found out about a couple of gambling sites a few years back and then only around 1 and a half years ago I found out about stake! I have fell in love ever since and I still use it every day!.

I also what gambling makes it fun is that you don't know what's going to happen. It's like a suprise. You never know when you're going to win... It is also fun because it's something to do in your spare time. I also consider gambling as a hobby.

Anyway that's my experience with how i found out about gambling and what I think makes gambling fun...

Have a good day stakers!
