33 Gambling Quotes

Gambling is the wagering of money or something of value on an event with an uncertain outcome, with the primary intent of winning money or material goods. It dates back to the Paleolithic period, before written history. Some people would have you believe that gambling is one giant scheme and that anyone who chooses to gamble is a fool. Others would have you believe that with the right system you can easily make a substantial amount of money. Prior to the invention of the first slot machine in the 19th century, gambling machines appeared throughout bars and pubs. Studies show that though many people participate in gambling as a form of recreation or even as a means to gain an income, gambling, like any behavior that involves variation in brain chemistry, can become a harmful, behavioral addiction.
