Gamble Responsibly – Have Affordable Fun

There is no doubt gambling can be a fun, exciting and glamorous way to spend your money. As long as you can afford to lose the money your gambling with – then have fun, enjoy the thrill of taking a shot at winning big.

Are You Still Better Off Learning To Play Poker ?

Remember that in the long run – The house (or the bookmaker) always wins (averaged out over all the action and all the players) – As they say “you never see a poor bookie”. That shouldn’t stop you trying to beat the house or break the bookie there are always lucky players and that might just be you … but be realistic – gambling is an enjoyable luxury it is not an easy way to earn a living.

Gambling can be exciting & entertaining if you follow the 3 golden rules of gambling …

#1 NEVER gamble with money you cannot afford to lose.

#2 NEVER borrow money to gamble.

#3 NEVER gamble more to chase your losses.

You Might Not Beat the House In the Long Run – But You Can Have Fun Trying

All casino games are designed with a house edge which is just enough in the long run for them to make a profit overall, even after they payout to the winners, the jackpots and everyone who gets lucky. The only exception is poker – which is why I mostly play poker.

Poker is not played against the house it’s played against other gamblers, there is no house edge (just the rake), it’s a skill game and therefore it’s a game you can beat, winning against other players and improving your game to make a profit in the long run – If you put the effort in.
