As a gambler I respect this post OP...

emoji



I used to play Poker MOST Thurday's EVERY FRIDAY, and SOME Sundays without fail...Used to put in at least a 4 game parlay every Friday at the poker game for the football season...

Crazy enough as a gambler the explosion of gambling and online sportsbooks has pushed me away from the habit, The money my mom just bet me on the Superbowl is my first bet in 2024...

And when she wake up, she better pay up...

While I remain a fan of "free will" I would be a fool to not support some type of legislation....

The cards are too stacked...You're no longer up against your own will; hell I'd like to see all types of consumer legislation because we're on the brink of chaos all in the name of board members and the mighty dollar...

I won 8k in 2022 on FanDuel during football season and it crippled me. I been chasing that high every since then. It's not a good feeling. I backed off this season some but still lost a share of my hard earned money.

I realized the only reason why I even was getting hyped for the season is because of the gambling rush. Stopped putting parlays in around November and barely watched any unless the Lions played. Gotta train yourself to not care about that sh1t.

They've made like 250 billion since 2018. Can't remember it exactly but it's a crazy amount.

Just like the lottery, sports gambling is basically a new poor tax.

you have a lot of insight on this
It's because although I don't consider myself a professional gambler I do consider myself a DEGENERATE...

emoji


I have 3 open Whatsapp groups one actually called DEGENERATES
emoji
the others named after Poker Hands...

We'll bet on ANYTHING...it"s FUN...

emoji


BUT as a Degen who considers himself "in control" I SEE THE DYSFUNCTION amongst my peers...


I don't gamble with what I cannot afford to lose, I consider the game a hobby, it gets the fellas together, gives us something to talk about, gets me out the house, takes us on trips around the world just to chill and share that common pleasure....
emoji


BUT I see the dysfunction, I've seen a guy who makes 80K a year with a 50K table debt. I've seen 100k calls WITH NOTHING... Seen a 389K poker hand AT A HOME GAME that won with 1 pair a K on the fu#kIN TURN and THAT'S INSANE...
emoji



But saying all of that one thing I don't like is to see people taken advantage of...and the way Sports betting is taking off there's about to be alot of blood in the water...
emoji


Like i say I ENJOY GAMBLING AS ENTERTAINMENT...I can count on 1 hand how many times I've "blown up" or been UPSET about a loss...disappointed YES but upset Not really...
emoji


I just don't like to see the wild wild west out here...

I was in school when the VA lottery was 1st announced and it was FUN...It was niche...had to find a store to play so it "felt" fair...NOW you can buy tickets from the fu#kin laundry mat to a machine in the daycare lobby
emoji


I used to drop $2-3 on the Megamillions Powerball sh1t like that BUT to see where it's ballooned too socially I don't even play anymore...

I remember tickets were $1 now they have $30 fu#kin scratch tickets man...

I mean saying all of that I guess what I mean is with capitalism nothing ever gets BETTER for the consumer it always gets worse..

I mean bad enough you go into a casino KNOWING THE HOUSE HAS AN EDGE but to KNOW they straight up CHEATING, they straight up have laws that protect them from LOSSES



To see that type of corruption taints the experience and the sport/pastime for me...

I remember it was rumors and common to KNOW chemicals are pumped into the AC units to keep you gambling, clocks are removed to keep you gambling etc...NOW with the introduction of AI and supercomputing THE AVERAGE CONSUMER DOESN'T STAND A CHANCE and it's a shame NO ONE GIVES A fu#k...this sh1t finna be UGLY..

This is one of the realest lines ever. It's crazy how the rich get richer over the poor trying to get rich. This whole game of capitalism is rigged that way.

Nah I agree. Most people around me who gamble do it casually like 5 10 20 bucks like less than most average lottery players would spend.

Nothing too out of control.

I know a few guys who say they do more but I donít have personal experience with it.

But I agree with your overall sentiment. These companies are going to make a ton of money with people just blindly betting $100 a week or more

Gotta have discipline and not turn into a junky over the sh1t and bet more than you have to play with.
Expect to lose.
Been doing it for years. They definitely are pushing to younger people with the online betting and celebrity endorsements.

Just ki1led it yesterday with SGP and Live bets.
