    I can see no pros unless you win a lot of money and stop gambling (or gamble once a year, lol).

    Pros are all the rest: you go back to gambling because you believe you'll be able to get back what you've lost and more - and no, in the end you'll always lose even if you happen to win at times, it becomes addictive, you have to hide it from the people you know because nobody can understand it and in thee end you'll be facing financial problems and be unable to save for good things such as vacations or necessary things such as shoes or that something that has happened out of the blue such as a window that broke or a washing machine that stopped working... I think you understand me.

    Gambling can be fun not knowing whats going to happen but it becomes bad if you lose way more then you win and don't have those extra funds available.

    So in my opinion it's a better every once and awhile thing that you save for so you don't get addicted and lose it all.

    Well some of the pros are, you win money......Cons are well.....you lose money and then you want to go back because you want to get your money back, then you end up losing again and again and then it becomes addictive for some people because you end up winning again

    Pros- you could win money, you have fun, you meet interesting people at casinos, you learn new strategies.

    Cons- it can become addicting, you have to be able to stop yourself, you can lose a lot of money, some lose all of their savings.
