Who remembers there first ever legal age bet on anything?


Featured Comment

Mine was when i had turned 18 and was aloud into a betting shop,  all my older friends would go on a saturday at 11am religiously. I remember feeling nervous and had my I.d at the ready, i put a bet on a horse copying my friend. I lost and realised at that moment the horses weren't  for me although i still have a flutter now and again.

I honestly don't remember my first bet but I'm almost positive it was online crypto casinos where it happened. Definitely also was on a crash site that I religiously played when I first started gambling. I know my first bets were when I was underage on the V1 of a popular Bitcoin crash site and I cherish those times I had, not even betting just chatting on site. So much fun.

It is interesting to see all of the different answers and I really did not realize that the legal gambling age varied so much around the world.  I used to bet even before I could legally do it, my mom used to take me to the horse races when I as 15 or 16 and place my bets for me.  Depending on the type of gambling here, the legal age ranges from 18-21.

Yeah, so my first legal bet was on another site, earlier when we had CS:GO gambling sites alive, I think the site was a coinflip/jackpot site too, and I remember I lost my first skin (45$), wasn't upset though, because I knew I could get it back somehow, so yeah,  I kept playing and won everything back, I rarely do tend to visit irl casinos, I prefer online ones more, so yeah.

Kind regards,

I still remember it well what happened 30 years ago when I started to know gambling, at that time I was 11 years old and I have started to follow gambling activities, unfortunately I was netted in a raid conducted by the police and I was finally released because I was still underage, and I was also beaten by my father. memories that I cannot forget

I don't remember when I first gambled, but clearly at that time I was 12-13 years old, but I thought I started becoming addicted to gambling when I was 20 years old. and I gamble until now

the title says legal age  but every country have a different legal age group right ?  idk if 12/13 is a legal age on your country but i dont also know if what are the legal age group on my own country but i think i also started gambling when i was too young   .  i think my age was lower than 12/13   .  it happens on our place specifally on the streets   . its  a kind of gambling that uses coins as bets   .  eventually many form of gambling is introduced by my friends    . now the streets were now emptied because people have grown older and change thier hobby   .  i can only play gambling online

12-13 years old has not been allowed to gamble in my country, I did it in a house. the homeowner opens gambling like a casino without government permission. he opens illegal gambling, so anyone can play from young to old

My first bet when i was 16.. get very excited for the 1st win and become addicted.. haha

You are still quite old when you know about gambling. at the age of 16 years thought has matured, just waiting for maturity to be able to control themselves. still far compared to me where I still runny when knowing gambling. and I still didn't understand anything in the world when I first knew gambling

It has always been prohibited in our country, save for the online casinos, which will soon be banned as well. But only lately, I knew about land-based casinos. They are already facing and trying to parry a resolution at our higher court that will make them close their businesses. Local gambling tables on streets are now also being raided everyday. It is effective though, because it hit me as well. It now makes me think to stop soon, for real.
