Do you consider yourself a gambler?
Some people enjoy heading out to Las Vegas or their local casino area, partaking in some fine dining, a show or two, and maybe take a chance at the tables or slot machines. For some, that gambling portion of their trip can be an exciting time (check out any craps table around 11pm) or something a bit more depressing (any keno lounge at 3am).
The reasons that people enjoy gambling run almost hand in hand with the reasons that others absolutely despise gambling. To the latter group, the issue is often “why bother throwing money away? Nobody ever wins.”
And for the most part, they’re right. Casinos exist solely because the “house always wins”. If they didn’t, then casinos wouldn’t exist at all. Gambling is a business, and if a business can’t make a profit somewhere along the line, it would cease to exist.
