it seems everyday i read more and more about the conflicts of gambling in the U.S.A. i am a die hard online casino gambler. i live in the U.S.A. and i just wonder what would happen if everyone in the U.S.A. decided not to buy lottery tickets or scratch off tickets. ouch!! wouldnt that hurt the system? the way i see it gambling is gambling. your paying for a shot to win money . its just in a different form.
