A lot of people do not go no where near gambling, simply because they try to steer clear from becoming addicted, but personally I think its a great money earner.
I personally started playing when I was about 19 years old and to be honest I lost quite a bit of my money when I first started, I believe it was because I was a bit naïve and thought I was the best player. But I decided to do something about it so I read manuals both online and offline, I was getting great at the game.
My special game was poker, I was basically unstoppable and it was earning me a bit of extra poket money. It was not until I got my first internet connection that I got obsessed with something called Rakeback, but it was a lot different online and a whole new ball game, things were a lot harder because you could not see who you were playing against and the whole purpose of poker is being able to tell when someone is bluffing. I did begin to lose a small amount of money again but then I started to get really good.
There was a much wider audience online and the jackpots that I was winning were huge amounts because a lot more people were depositing big amounts of money and I started to make a good fortune so I was a lot happier then I had been for a long time. Within a few years I had bought a luxury house, a small yacht and a couple of nice cars, I still play online poker twice a week and am raking in a good amount, although I do sometimes have my bad days I would never change my life for a second and for every that moans about gambling, they should first try it to see what an exciting game it can be.
