Benefits of Gambling. Really!

People have different reasons why they gamble. Some gamble to forget their problems, others are for fun or get through the time, the rest are those who play seriously and are hooked into it. 

But all isn't negative when it involves gambling as there are untapped benefits of gambling that can't be seen within the walls of the casino, the race track, or the bingo social hall. 


In Las Vegas, a whopping 60% of the utilization ratio is attributed to casinos' presence. Can you imagine Las Vegas without any casinos?


Self-discipline is the key. Gambling is initially intended for entertainment. Others couldn't handle a loss and always thinking that the next card would make them a winner, but it never does. And this type of gambler only covers 25% of the gambling population who cannot gamble responsibly.

Imagine the opposite 75% who responsibly gamble. These people find the entertainment value of gambling and are never blinded by the illusion that is hitting its success. Just one occasion is the key to financial freedom.

Sadly, a small percentage of the gambler population gets the bad rap of how gambling is often so destructive. Families, friends, jobs, properties, crimes, and deception permeate the destruction caused by gambling, but it's still a small portion of the gambler population.

Charity Work


Winnings from gambling activities have contributed to providing the needed support of worthy causes. They use gambling activities like bingos or lotteries, with a portion of the jackpot winnings tied with charitable organizations

Some celebrities even play card games like poker to supply entertainment for the viewers and winnings for the charity organizations they represent.

Health Benefit

Studies are found that retirees 65 years old and above who gamble have fewer health issues like depression, alcoholism, and bankruptcy as they find gambling to be therapeutic because it exercises their mind and keeps them alert. However, the study wasn't conclusive because retiree gamblers are the recreational gamblers who find the entertainment value of gambling. 

After all, it's not the gambling itself that makes it beneficial or harmful to the individual. It's the individual's choice if gambling would control him, or he would control his gambling habit.
