Why Do People Like To Gamble?

The King has been giving a little thought about why some people like to gamble more than others. This is what he found:

When it comes to gender, man and women have different preferences in their gambling. Men like to play games such as blackjack and lotteries and women like their bingo and raffle tickets. Both men and women enjoy the game of roulette equally.

When it comes to age, the older a person is the less he or she is likely to gamble.

Single, and separated individuals gamble more than people that are in relationships.

Reports show that residents of big cities gamble more than residents of smaller places.

When it comes to religion, Catholics gamble more than other religious groups. Catholics are also less disapproving of gambling compared to other religious groups.

The King has viewed reports of gambling in relation to social class but has found mixed results. Both, rich and poor, like to test their luck at the roulette table from time to time.

There you have it folks. Cya at the roulette table!
