  1. Probably could’ve worded this better but that latter statistic is incidence of gambling problems AMONG gamblers, not the general population. So men are more likely to gamble and male gamblers are more likely to have gambling problems compared to female gamblers (maybe that should’ve been the title…)

  2. My husband gets excited and suggests we stop every time we pass a casino. He’s not addicted and has never won a dime. I do not get the pull. Even if someone else handed me their money to go gamble, I would still be uninterested. Just feels like a massively manipulative waste of time.
