Is Gambling A Good Investment?

By - - [ Lifestyle ]

I have friends that take a lot of risks when I say risk I mean high rate of risk, they believe that gambling is a good investment, an investment that shares the margin of profit and loss 50/50. What do I mean, if you win fine, if you lose fine. They have source that supply them with fixed odds and they stake too high, most times I wonder if I can really take those, some are apprentice, they use their boss money to gamble.

Gambling is also not a good thing for people who want to go into an investment because you're going to be putting a lot of money at risk of either gaining or losing. it is also very addictive so if you have not attempted It, it is best you stay away from it because the outcome might not be as good as it sounds.

As the time been gambling will never and can never be an investment, to me I see gambling as another name for luck. Gambling is just a thing you can do with a spare money, i.e money you know if you lose you will be fine, and if you win it will be a plus to you.

Gambling is never an investment as far as am concerned it's a lucky stuff. 

When you gamble it's a lucky stuff and a 50/50 challenge and it can as be seen as a business and in every business is either you win or you lose. So I don't think there is any investment out there that deals with either you win or you lose kind of scenario. That's why I said its never an investment.

Gambling isn't bad when you have more than enough money. As long as you're not using all the money you have on you at that moment because you could end up loosing your money. Its not an investment. Its just luck

You might be lucky and you might not be lucky but you cannot rely on gambling.

Gambling is never an investment. It is just a game and like every game one is bound to win or loss. It is just winning by a stroke of luck nothing else. So therefore huge amounts of money is not supposed to be put into gambling. Although winning can be quite exiting and addictive.

It is their ignorance that makes them to take gambling as an investment gambling is not an investment because you can only profit from it once in a blue Moon, after you won for the first time you will be addicted to it and gambling can lead to failure in one's life and can make someone not to have anything as his/her own as all the person earn is spent on gambling it also lead to laziness

Gambling ain't an investment rather it is a game if death. There have been many cases of people committing suicide after gambling their life expenses. I wouldn't know why somebody will take the risk of staking more than what he/she can work for.

A good investment is something you’re sure to make gain from and you clearly know how the gain is going to come about; and gambling is the exact opposite because you’re not sure of winning. It’s a 50/50 chance, you could lose all and still win all. Going into something and hoping for luck to make you make profit isn’t good for investors.

Gambling isn't an investment. It's a game of luck. You either win or lose. The chance of getting it done right is not all that great but, if you have the money and the heart, you can do it. It's risky.

Gambling can never be seen or used as investment, it is a game of risk a day if a person is not careful it can make a rich man poor overnight. Make good investment with your money, an investment that do not require so much risk. So you can have a peaceful rest at night.

Betting is no good investment because no matter how sure it's, it's still a game of chance, you win some you lose some. Gambling cannot be taken as an investment, investment is safer compared betting

Gambling is a straight way for destroying people's life rather than being an investment. It's a game of probabilities and you can't predict the final result, it only depends on Your luck. So to me, gambling is not an investment

First, gambling is not an investment at all. Then saying good investment? That's not even supposed to be asked. Do you ask the question what happens next when they loose their stakes? That's an unsure way of life.

Like most people have stated gambling isn't a good investment,  I remember there was a time I was addicted , it really ruined me , used my school fees , rent and what not ... it was awful but I stopped and find out it was way better for me to save money rather than using it for gambling

Gambling is never a good investment and will never be because it's a game of probaility. It's a very risky business and when some poeple invest and loss huge amount of money they can commit suicide. Last two weeks a guy whose wife put to bed and he doesn't have money for the hospital bill and somebody brrowed him 35k to offset the hospital bill. Instead of using the money to pay for the hospital bill and because he is addicted to this gambling, his friend told him there is a special number to play that you will never loss when you play it. He now went and stake it with 30k by 12noon that day the number failed and he went and hanged himself on a tree inside the bush living his wife and the new baby in the hospital. So, you can see what gambling cause in the lives of people.

Before we conclude that gambling is not an investment, I will like to ask what an investment is? I believe it's something you put your money into expecting a gain from it. Which means you're not 100% sure you will get back what you invested. So I think gambling is one. Just with high risk and more of luck that's it.

The problem with us Nigerians is that none of us wants to work hard and make money, we all want to make money the easy way. I've played lots of betting in the past and there was a time I believed in fixed match which work out for me although not all the time. It's not easy to get a real fixed match nowadays, there are lot of scammers. My advice is that you invest that big money you plan on risking on betting

Gambling is another instrument the devil is using to destroy the youths life. The funnest thing is that the house always have the higher change to win then the player it's like when u bet on the number that is going to surface when you role a dice, in this bet the house has 5 changes of winning your money while you have just one. You can see that ur changes are very slim the same apply to bet9ja, I invest my money on NNU

Gambling as never and will never be an investment, gambling is all about risk and how you intend to stake high, and I want you to know that gambling can sometimes be an addiction, an addiction that can sometimes ruin the way you spend money,  I will sometimes say only the RICH gamble, imagine me that I haven't eaten and I only have 1k to spend for like 2weeks, I'll never want to make a bet with that, gambling can be sometimes good and bad depending on how much you earn or the kind of work you do. So I suggest you bet wisely.

Everything should be done moderately is just that we youths of nowadays based our riches and destiny on gambling and wish should not be so. Even some gambling site will say and I qoute " do not let gambling be your problem" some of the youths has met their Waterloo from this so call gambling of a thing. When gambling we have to apply wisdom and senses.

Many Nigerians wants to become rich over night. Gambling in a way is an investment only if you gamble wisely by staking on 2 odds daily not by accumulating many games. Staking on 2 odds daily can lesser the risk of loosing your money

Gambling is a good investment but only if it is from the right source thats all, some of these fixed matches are all fake, they are just people trying to make money out of other people’s sweats all in the name of selling fixed matches.

Some are fake, just very few are real, about only 10% of the people that say they have fixed games are real.Just stay wise and bet wisely.
