Playing Poker is all good and well if you can play it like the people from the movies, most people cannot play it this well. However it would seem that a lot of people are playing it like they do with the slot machines and horse/greyhound racing.
The real problem is that when somebody wins big they just cannot leave so they carry on and get into a losing streak and just cannot stop. Of course because you have gotten this one win you are always going to be looking for more and more wins so even that losing streak may not make you quit the game. This is the problem with many company’s as they will continue to encourage you to play saying that you are bound to win at some point.
The best thing to do is play in moderation, do not take it too far. Do not go spending all of your money on playing poker as gambling is something that can very easily tear away marriages and your entire life apart.
There are actually some companies out there that will see the money you are spending and say look just calm it down a bit. These companies care both about the profits and of the wellbeing of their customers.
It may be worth looking into one of the games that are out on the consoles if you are spending too much at the moment? There are so many Poker options out there to choose from. There are so many poker tournaments that are set up for the fun so have a look around.
It is not always about the money!
