You don't gamble to win. You gamble to have fun. You pay for entertainment.

Think of it this way: if you go to a Rangers game, you will lose money, right? You have to pay for the ticket, for parking, for beer? You are probably down a couple hundred dollars assuming you get good, but not great tickets plus a beer and some snacks. What's the difference between that and going to a casino where you spend a couple hundred dollars a night?

You just have to be responsible about it. Don't throw away hundreds of dollars every night and don't lose thousands in one night either unless you make a million+ a year.

But responsible gambling, where you realize that you are paying to have fun, is alright.
