Have you joined any online gambling site and made a good income from it?

I don't think one can make a living out of gambling. This is because it is just based on trial and error. You may win today and loose all the other days. I have ever tried sports gambling but I don't think one can make a living out of it.

I am not well acquainted with Poker...in fact I know nothing about Poker, just heard its name and that it is played with cards. But how is it skill based game? I thought you needed to have good luck on your side to succeed.


Poker is like chest in form of cards. So yes the more you practice the more you will be good on poker. People who are good with poker can win no matter what card they get.

Yes, it can make you rich for a day but it’s not an excellent idea to make it your source of income. I have tried it before but I lost some money so yeah, no more gambling for me

It is more of luck and you never know which side it might turn. It can make you rich or bring you down to rags.
Practise with poker definitely helps.

I can never believe that slot machines and the cards machines are designed to make us win. if that would have happen many casinos will get bankrupt.

I agree Poker has gone many levels above the rest of gambling methods to become some sort of sport! People can now earn ridiculous amounts of money doing it. I personally would never go there, poker or anything else. Things can spiral so quickly and what starts as a bit of fun becomes an ugly addiction you can't rid yourself of.

If you are good at sports predictions.... sports betting might be good for you. Sports betting sites are not limited to sports, they now make bettings for Reality tv competitions like Survivor and Big Brother and they recently made betting for Miss Universe.

Yes, we can make fortune in gambling but I don't consider it income. Income should be consistent flow or revenue and in gambling it's not or can be more if you're lucky or skillful enough.

Forget prediction - that's more like gambling. Try spread trading on sports betting exchanges such as Betfair.

The definition of gambling in my dictionary is this - placing a bet to win or to lose. It is easy to understand that there is a probability of losing money in gambling. With that premise I don't see how you can make gambling as a source of income. But in fairness to gambling I agree that you can "win" a fortune.

How can gambling be a source of income. This has dealt with a lot of people and made them poor. I see gambling to be a game overtaken by fools and lazy people.

Poker players worked hard. They mastered how the game worked. Not all gambling is based on luck. Some are skill based.
