Told you this was pure gambling. It is not skill, it is "betting" and it is still gambling. The government really needs to STOP THESE online available sites.

The problem with gambling is only the winner will tell you he won. The losers don't go running around saying "I lost I lost."

I find the one guy on the draftkings commercial who says "I can consistently beat my buddies on draftkings every week, every week I can beat them."

Yeah right. The guy looks like some asshat delusional meth head.

I totally agree with you, as the TV advertising suckers more people to join in.
They love it when they can "showcase" a winner, but 97% of the people lose.

Their are so many young naive people out there that Fan Duel and the others pray on!

Opening a kriminal probe is only the same as a konviktion to demokrats and the B.Hussein.O administration. Next they'll be droning anyone participating in fantasy football.

Just remember, when somebody wins the Powerball jackpot, about 170 million people lost.

It won't help. Right-wingers are just as dumb without drugs.

I have found it is pointless to explain that to someone unless they have actually played in a fantasy football league. Choosing a player for your roster is nowhere near the same as picking numbers for your powerball ticket.

Pretty much the reason why exceptions exist for games where an element of skill is involved. Otherwise college scholarship essay writing contests would end up being classified as gambling. And the governmental units reported on so far are merely "looking" at the operations of these two fantasy websites. Big deal.

I do agree with you that a lot of people are dependent on online games, but the problem is in people not in games. As example I play for 5 years and I do that just to rest after work, I am not dependent of this games, I am not playing for thousands of dollars. I play to relax. I don't have any aim to win. And as well it depends where you are playing, for example I were able to find togel singapore, which is really nice one, with good design and different games. And if you want they have limit, not to spend more than you want. God with you.

I also don't understand those people who gamble and don't want to win. I personally love money and love to win, probably these two things keep me gambling to this day. I have my own ritual every time I play, I click to https://www.obscuresound.com/2020/07/how-music-can-help-to-win-in-online-slots/ and turn on the music to tune in to the game
