Neither. Next question. I will never understand the immoral part of it. Unethical I can see when people are wagering so much on a game that they can influence the outcome. But otherwise? It's your money you can do whatever you want with it.

I don't think it is either.

I forget who said it, but a great quote is, "Gambling is a tax on stupid people." The house always wins. Even if you come out ahead, the house has still beaten you. THEY NEVER PAY THE TRUE ODDS!!! If something is a 100:1 chance, they pay 98:1. Even when you win, you still lose. I have better things to do with my money.

Either as well.

Neither. If you can think of it as entertainment and stay within your budget and pay all of your other bills, there's nothing wrong with gambling.

Before I looked at the options I thought this was a yes or no question, it seems kind of stupid to relate it to either one.

well looking up the words in the dictionary it can be "wrong or wicked" (immoral) or "morally wrong" (unethical) so its a lose lose situation
