10 Reasons for Gambling

Most discussions about what motivates a person to gamble usually will start by comparing gambling to life. And yes life is a gamble every time you breathe it could be your last. Getting out of bed in the morning can lead to the last thing you ever do, yet we all get out of bed almost every day. But casino gambling gives us an option we don’t normally have in life; we can bet on the outcome of things, we get to choose how much to risk and when to risk it.
Gambling is defined by the Dictionary as the following:
To play games of chance for money or some other stake, or to take a risk in order to gain some advantage.

Here are the top 8 answers we received:

Vacation:

Las Vegas in the last 10 years has become a popular place to bring the family. Las Vegas has many attractions for family fun. And in the evening after the kids go to sleep there is also plenty of adult entertainment.

To win and become rich:

Of all the people interviewed these people seemed to be the least crazy. They came to the casino with hopes of getting rich and being able to quit there jobs and live the good life, but they also know that the chances are good they would all have to get up Monday morning and return to work.

Money problems:

it seems there are many people who believe they can fix there money problems with gambling. Most of the people who claimed that money problems were the reason for them gambling lost more money gambling then they originally owed and had they not gambled would not have been so bad off according to them. Of this group none said they had managed to win the money they needed.

A great place to hold a wedding:

Apparently having a wedding at some of the larger casinos is Las Vegas or Atlantic City is becoming popular, apparently the casinos will give you an excellent price on the wedding hall and rooms for your guests, of course they do this with the knowledge that the guests will spend money in the casino so giving a good rate n the wedding is in there best interest

This is how they make a living:

I found that these people and the ones who had money problems were extremely different. These people at least knew how to gamble, most of them had many years experience and some were regular tournament players with at least 1 win under there belts.

For a bachelor party:

The number of people that gave this response makes it very clear that going to a casino for a bachelor party if definitely gaining in popularity.

To get out of the house:

I noticed almost all of the people in his category were all males and were all married for more them 10 years and had kids. They said they like to come to the casino on average about once a month stay for a few hours, play some games and then head home.

To have fun:

These people had the right idea, but I could not believe how low on the list they scored. Having fun should be the number 1 reason to gamble. They only wanted to have some fun take a little trip to the Casino, have some free drinks, play some games and if they win, good and if not that’s OK also. These people came down with a certain amount they could lose and not be upset or broke and they stick to it. These people all seemed to be reaching there goal not one of them was complaining about how close they came to hitting big or what if they had just done this or that.

Gambling Events Basics

Gambling has always been a tabooed subject in the middle class households because of the adverse sociological impacts. The great epics of the east include stories about the kings losing their whole dynasties in the game of gambling. Thought he whole practice is scathed, but the charm of the game has not ended basically because of the quick rewards associated with it. It still attracts the poorest of the masses and the richest of the riches to the doorsteps of the casinos, which mark almost the whole world. The economic contribution of the gambling and gaming to the GDP’s of many countries is really high.

The auspices of gambling extend beyond the normal card and board games. The roulette, the high rollers and the other device-based games are also a part and parcel of the gambling phenomenon. The Internet also has been a major force in spreading the gambling games across the globe. Tagging gambling as a sport will and has raised many critical remarks, as the spirit of the game cannot be attached to the gambling games. The trickery will always be attached to the gamblers. Because of this the habit of gambling is also prohibited by law in many countries.

Another way of looking at things is the way the gambling events are being organized for raising charity money. Raffles are also a kind of gambling but they are normally used to raise the money for the poor and the needy. The gambling not confined to the American states but it cuts across all societies and cultures equally. The events of gambling takes place internationally. Also the casinos are spread evenly on the world map. Gambling is now being attached to the luxury and glamour and is seen at the most exotic of places. The glitterati moving towards these places show that the games have become a status symbol for the high classes of the society.

Sports betting and Internet gambling are the two most prevalent mediums for the aspiring players to begin. Gambling has taken the form of an industry and the stakes in the area are increasing progressively. The political and social impact of gambling are being discussed by the sociologists across the world and the implications are being recorded to decide the fate of such a so-called social evil.

Although the gambling in its strict sense means betting and winning at the cards table, but the meaning of the word is being extended by adding the bullfights and the dog and cock fights in the gambling ambit. They remain a question unanswered. This is because of the simple reason that gambling is now associated with status of the people and thus Bullfights etc. are considered to be street sports rather then gambling. Although their nature remains essentially the same.

Gambling has seen as a rising industry after the amalgamation of the practice with traveling and leisure. The hot destinations in North America provide exotic locations for the rich and the famous to dole out millions at the mercy of lady luck. In other words gambling has glamorized getting bankrupt. Nevertheless, the practice has seen the changing times and history has it that it dominated many kingdoms. Thus we can safely presume that as long as the mankind exists gambling will breathe with it.

Top 7 Ways To Get Rich

Want to be one of the lucky ones on the road to riches, want to be on the freeway to financial freedom, on your way to wealth?

Here are the top 7 roads to riches, the top 7 easiest and fastest ways to acquire wealth …

Inherit it

This is how today’s old money families got their wealth. In the 1800’s and early 1900’s, before anti-trust laws, income taxes and political correctness, America’s finest families built empires and amassed great wealth; in industries such as oil, banking, newspapers, sugar, transportation, land, bootlegging and even prostitution. And that original wealth was passed down to succeeding generations. The number one easiest and fastest way to acquire wealth is to inherit it. Unfortunately, inheriting wealth is mainly a matter of blood; you have to be born into the right family.

Marry it

If you can’t inherit it the second easiest and fastest way to acquire wealth is to marry someone who is already wealthy. And sometimes that person may even be kind, generous, compatible and loveable. And, if not, divorce can pay off handsomely. Just remember to get married (and divorced) in a state that has favorable community property laws.

Work for it

If you can’t inherit wealth and can’t marry it then you can work for it. People rarely get rich having a job. Rather, they build a company and own it. And then often take that company public, collecting hundreds of millions, or billions, of dollars in doing so.

Or, they invent something useful and valuable which greatly benefits society, such as explosive devices like dynamite, or the paper clip or the thigh master or eBay.

Win it

If you can’t inherit wealth, can’t marry it or can’t work for it then maybe you can win it. Lotteries abound, paying out multi-million dollar jackpots, and eventually someone always wins them. Unfortunately, you have a greater chance of being struck by lightning then winning the lottery. But, hey, it only costs a buck!

Steal it or deal it

If you can’t inherit wealth and you can’t marry it, work for it, or win it then maybe you could steal it or deal it.

You could become a CEO or chief financial officer for a big cash-rich company, cook the books, steal millions of dollars, buy a $20 million dollar home, lie to the feds, and hope you don’t get caught, convicted and sent to Club Fed. I don’t recommend anyone try to get rich this way.

Also not recommended is to deal it; to become a drug lord and generate hundreds of millions of dollars in cash dealing heroin, crack, meth and other non-FDA approved goodies and wholesaling it to pushers who will gladly resell it to anyone to wants it, ranging from children to movie stars. After all, aren’t drug dealers just supplying what people want; even if it creates crime, ruins lives, kills people or could put you in jail for the rest of your life. Not a legal (or moral) way to get rich.

Gamble for it

If you can’t inherit money, can’t marry it, can’t work for it, can’t win it, can’t steal or deal it then maybe you could gamble for it. Over 50 million people play poker. A few even make millions of dollars at it. You’ve seen them on television, winning or losing upwards of a million dollars on the turn of a card. Looks easy, doesn’t it? They don’t look so tough on TV; I bet any decent poker player (like me for instance) has a good chance of beating them on a lucky day. So maybe you could simply plunk down $3,000-$25,000 per tournament entry fee, or get a backer, join the World Poker Tour, win a few tournaments and get rich! Or maybe, in reality, the average amateur poker player has a snowball’s chance in hell of getting rich that way.

Invest and get rich

If you can’t inherit wealth, can’t marry it, can’t work for it, can’t win it, can’t steal or deal it or can’t gamble for it then maybe you can invest and get rich. There are 2 good ways to invest and get rich; the real estate market and the stock market.

According to historical data, over time, real etate goes up a average of 10% a year. So getting rich in real estate tends to take a long time. And also requires a large down payment. Hard to get rich quick that way.

On the other hand, the stock market can be a good way to get rich. Stocks can go up dramatically over a relatively short period of time and make you rich but you have to have the money to invest and you have to pick the right stocks at the right time.

To recap how to get rich:

1. inherit it

2. marry it

3. work for it

4. win it

5. steal it or deal it

6. gamble for it

7. invest for it

These are the top 7 easiest and quickest ways people can get rich. How will YOU do it?
