STOP calling gambling problems a "Disease". Its a choice and it is an insult to those with real disease like cancer or MS

Since gambling has been recognised as a disease and all gambling is just a big bamboozle of a form of Three Card Monte just to get people to think that there is a possibility of winning,we should be able to do CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT to get our money back and then the governments of the world might actually do the responsible and make gambling illegal and put a stop to all the misery.

Bob Crane (9 months ago)
Good documentary, but the name makes it look like it's all about high rollers. Also, they act like sports betters are brilliant folks who beat the house. There was a brief time when some bettors with computer skills beat the line makers, but now all sides have lines with top notch computers. This looks like 1996-1998? But, I think sports betting was already clamped down by then. Sad you can be arrested for bribing a player, you didn't take an oath.

If the odds for the casino is just 2%, then how 95% of the people return home with nothing?
Jorge Serna (6 months ago)
If you have $100 and lose 2% you now have $98 with a chance to lose another 2%. Every move will slowly take your money if you don't walk away after a win.
Filiana Blanxart (9 months ago)
2% for each hand/ spin of the wheel/ pull of the handle , etc . Over the long run , the 2% adds up . But the real questions are 92- 98% payouts from Casinos vs less than 50% from most State Lotteries .
Rick James (9 months ago)
2% win , the rest lose.

@Rick James Rick, thank you, but as a minnow, i do ok. To me gambling is the best recreational activity to condition you to keeping everything in perspective.
Rick James (9 months ago)
tony 'too sweet' swann Only play poker or horse racing. If you become good at either, you can win. Play low stakes cash game poker you can make $500 - 1000 /week if you are patient.

Feels good to be a texas holdem poker player! Aint easy! But it is worth it!
marbleman52 (1 year ago)
This was very informative; I didn't know that gambling was so prevalent in the Colonial years. As for me personally, I have never had any desire to gamble...I had to work too hard for what little money I was making and I was not about to risk losing any of it by betting on a stupid game. I just shake my head in amazement when I see intelligent and good people get hooked on gambling.

dano r (1 year ago)
I live in Vegas. I know a lot of people that have gambling problems. Most of the people I know, like myself don't gamble unless friends/relatives come to town. Those that have problems have 1 thing in common. The first time they gambled, they won. It's the "it will happen again" thoughts that get them. Those that don't have problems, won at times. But losing that first time, leaves an impression on you. When people come to town, I don't gamble much. I like everyone in Nevada understand. They don't build multibillion dollar resorts, on people winning.

Gambling an Addiction! LOL! A process Addiction! Let me have my friend Ace Rothstein from the Tangier's Casino keep it real... For guys like me, Las Vegas washes away your sins. It's like a morality car wash. It does for us what Lourdes does for humpbacks and cripples. And along with making us legitimate comes cash, tons of it. I mean, what do you think we're doing out here in the middle of the desert? It's all this money This is the end result of all the bright lights... and the comp trips, of all the champagne and free hotel suites, and all the broads and all the booze. It's all been arranged just for us to get your money. That's the truth about Las Vegas... and Gambling...
