Money has no value to a gambler

Recommended Posts

I wondered if it was just me that would have to consider making a purchase, be it for clothes or whatever, can i afford £70 for them trainers, no, an hour later i would piss £70 away in a machine in 10 minutes  and ask myself why tf did i just do that, makes no sense

Absolutely. It's not about the money for a lot of people especially problem gamblers. The feeling of happiness is what's so addictive to buying. We do £1 spins and then theres 3 lines winning 10p each, we lose 70p on that spin but because its shown 3 wins and nice little flashes and the word WIN, we are subconsciously happy for losing 70p and cant wait for that again! Crazy right?

Oh yeah definitely, I rarely treat myself to some decent new clothes, but would allow the machine to swallow £2-£300

I've always thought that gamblers have become hardened to loosing. They shrug it off. Humans are typically loss adverse and we typically remember loosing £200 more than we would winning £200.  Somehow gamblers blank losses out or remember wins more than losses.
