    Online or any kind of gambling method... Is it a good way to invest your money on it to increase your money, in your opinion?

    For a little bit of FUN, then gambling isn't a problem.
    Games of skill can be profitable but as a system to make money then I would advise most people to stay away from it.

    Agreed, if you like it and can keep it under control, sure, gaming is a good way to try to make some money while having fun. But as an actual method of trying to increase your investment, it's horrible. The games are designed to profit the people running them, so how could you profit in the long run?

    Being a sports bookie is the best way to make money with gambling.

    If you are talking sports bookie wise, if you know a lot about sports, you could try it. Don't put a lot of money, make small bets and see. It's hard unless you know what you are doing (lots of luck involved).

    But casino wise, it's a very dumb idea imo. Unless you are a professional poker player, then NO. Gambling has ruined a ton of lives.... I used to gamble online from time to time, but for fun. I put some money aside and EXPECT To lose it.... I'm not in it for the profit, never will be.
    Try to gamble for profit, and you'll end up losing it.

    In short - no , dumb idea.

    Don't do it. I won some big amounts in sport betting and when I tried to do it consistently, I was losing often because I'm a bad gambler, and 99,99% of people are bad gamblers.

    So unless you are the 0,1% of people that can actually put emotions aside and do it correctly, don't do it.
    It takes time, experience and huge effort if you want to invest money with gambling, and yet, you will still most probably lose money.
    Take that time, experience and effort into something more valuable and money maker.

    Gambling, as in online games (slots) etc, yeah, good way to lose money in the long run. Been there, lost lots and lots. IF you can keep it a bit of fun and are using spare money that you don't nee for anything then a gamble with it can be a bit of a rush. It all depends on the person and how they handle it.

    I got pulled in to online gambling without realising just how far in I was. I had a love hate relationship with one online slot game and it was a daily affair. I got in too deep and ended up £1,000's out of pocket. It affected my finances and I was gambling with money I couldn't afford to lose in the end.

    Yes, there is a huge rush when you win £500 at the press of the virtual button and see your balance climb to nearly £2,000 after a short time of playing but it just draws you in to bet more and more with each spin of that virtual wheel. I wasn't a huge time gambler by comparison to others but I found myself betting £20 a spin on a game that had stopped paying out. But the little voice in the back of my head was saying "Go on, just give it one more try at £20 and if you win you'll get it all back.

    Out of that £2,000 I walked away in the end with just £750 which seems bad but I did only start of that session with a deposit of £20.

    But in the bigger picture the gambling site took £1,000's off me, maybe if I am totally honest and add it all up, that would be £10,000's.

    You live and you learn I guess.

    :1: Gambling is fine so long as u can remember that gambling is just an entertainment, just like watching movie. Stay away if u do it with money making intention, especially if its casino games like baccarat etc.

    I like to bet on the football at the weekend. If I win I have a little extra beer money, if I don't, I won't lose any sleep over it.

    I know a lot of people make a living playing online poker, but I'm sure there are more ex-poker players living destitute than there are making a real living out of it.

    If you want to make money from gambling, I recommend you promote it as an affiliate. Big money, if you can get the traffic.
