A lot of people see gambling as a good way to make some money. Some even see it as an income. However, there are very few people who are good enough to be able to be professionals and make a living form it and even they can mess up and end up with nothing.
This is why it is important to always play for fun and not to think of it as a way to earn money. It is nice to win, there is no escaping that, but it is important to make sure that you do not get too carried away with the pleasure of winning money and realize that it should be the fun of the game that you are playing for.
The risk of just playing to win, means that you could get carried away with gambling too much. You may start to gamble too much money by placing higher bets or playing more often. This can lead to things getting out of control. The odds are always against you and if you lose a lot, then you may want to play even more money to try to win back what you have lost and it is possible that things can get worse and worse.
There are some games that give you a better chance of winning than others. There is nothing wrong in this, as they need to make some money from providing a fun place for you to play, but it is important that everyone is aware of this and the fact that they are unlikely to win.
Playing for fun is great as well. You can enjoy the actual act of joining I the game and being with others rather than relying on a win to give you pleasure. It means that you can feel the money that you have paid to play is paying for the fun you are having. You will then still enjoy yourself even if you do not win. This also means that you will not have a sense of disappointment if you do not win anything, but just feel like you have had a fun time playing. This is much better and much healthier for you as well and should keep you happier.
