I Lost All My Money To Betting On The World Cup Games In 3 Days

Day 191/365: Don’t bet. Never. Ever.

Remember when I told you about my little World Cup experiment? I was going to bet on the World Cup matches, especially on sure matches that were almost certain to turn out the way they were supposed to.

In about 2 weeks, I made about 50 bucks from just about 3 or 4. After that, all hell broke loose. I started losing money in an fast-paced way. I couldn’t even get one or two matches right on a 9-matches bet. There were surprises after surprises in the games, which meant I kept on losing money.

I lost all the $50 in about 3 days. That’s no tragedy for me. I’m not a gambler or a better, but I figured millions of people around the world might’ve lost a lot more money because they probably played safe like I did, but on much higher sums of money.

Losing a bet is no big deal. But losing all of your money to gambling or betting is dangerous. I know of people that lost their cars or even houses to betting. It’s a very provocative “sport”, yet one that can leave you stripped naked and with no chance of earning any of your money back.

All it takes is a “surprise” result and you’re left with nothing. Now, at the end of my experiment, my sole advice for you gambling beginners is to never ever go on and gamble or bet your money away. Simply don’t.

There are a lot of other nice ways of spending your free time. You can play a game. You can even play poker or slots or even bet on virtual money. You still get the excitement and the fun, but your bank account stays the same.

And trust me, no matter how much you bet and how much you win, you’ll still be left with no money eventually.

Good luck not betting your house away!
