Facts about Gambling

by Jerry "Jet" Whittaker
July 31, 2006

What is the reality


There are many facts about the gambling, which the gamblers should know but they do not know. These vital facts can help them to keep away from the adverse affects of the gambling. The gambling has reached to the roots of many of us. Some of the vital facts are listed below which can prove useful.


Some general myths and facts


Many of the people think that some people can predict, if a coin is coming heads or tails when it is flipped. It is a pure myth. In fact, each flip of the coin is an independent event. The chances of heads or tails coming up in a single flip are 50 per cent, regardless of the fact that what the result of the last flip was. It is also a myth between many youngsters that a person below 18 years can buy a lottery. This is absolutely wrong. It is against the provincial lottery regulation of each state. It is also a hard fact that most of the gamblers, in any casino lose more money than they win. It is absolutely impossible for a casino to stay in the business, if it pays more money than it took.


Important facts about the compulsive gambling


It is a fact that, the state of Nevada, which has one of the largest numbers of gamblers in USA, also recorded the most number of suicides and divorces. This fact clearly proves that there is a clear relation between the suicide cases and the gambling. This fact also proves that gambling affects the family life of many gamblers. A study conducted by the National Impact Study Commission has concluded that gambling introduces a greatly heightened level of stress and tension into marriages and families. In a recent study report it was clearly seen that suicide attempts among pathological gamblers are higher than for any other addictions. It is also interesting to note that suicide attempt rates in compulsive gamblers are only second to individuals with major affective disorders, schizophrenia and a few major hereditary disorders. It is also an eye-opener for most of the people that 67 percent of the teenagers gamble in one way or the other.
