What It Takes to Be a Professional Gambler
Gambling is entertaining. It can make sports more engaging, bachelor parties more exciting, and a trip to the gas station could be life-changing. Gambling is also an addiction. A survey found that most callers to a problem gambling hotline made less than $35,000 a year and lost an average of $21,500 a year gambling. That means many of those with a gambling problem are spending over half their income on gambling.
