Gambling has always been viewed as a means of saving the unfortunate overnight -- by betting small, then winning big-time -- by sheer stroke of luck. However, that is not always the reason. If we are to analyze the entire populace, most poor folks get by with various means of living. As long as it is legal, why the hell not? But gambling. The one thing that remains debatable. Seriously, a lot of people are into it. From the unemployed, to the oil magnate who has so much money could even buy the casino for himself.
People nowadays are wise enough to use their hard-earned money to try their luck in any form of gambling, though. That is the one thing we humans have learned from this activity -- the use of control. On the dark side, if control is not used wisely, the gambler would, of course, always risk everything he or she has, just to win. On a lighter note, aiming for something higher is not at all bad. A goal is set, therefore one is motivated to strive more. Same goes with betting.
A wise gambler can always start off with minimum bets, and when winning, he or she knows when to stop. Sure, accumulated winnings get high, and the greater the prize would be. But the gambler knows better, if he or she is also using what was learned through years of recklessness that resulted to disappointment. The gambler knows so much better now, that contentment is also a part of gambling. Period. He or she knows that getting on it like there's no tomorrow is dangerous, hence control is prevalent all throughout the game. We should understand that lotteries were accepted back in the day to help finance schools, churches, and other projects. Like Bingo, the main goal was to aid charities.
And since the Catholic church allows this type of gambling to take place, many old folks took part in it, to render support. Because of this belief that no matter how it was done, helping people is still top priority. This may not be what in the gambler's mind always, but the intent to reach out to people in need, and enjoy at the same time is just there. And to those who do it for pleasure, all is done for the sake of fun. They sure know that it's nothing to get addicted to, nothing more to waste money every day. For them, gambling is just gambling. Nothing more, nothing less.Share on:
