Not counting poker, How much would someone have to pay you in a one time lump cash sum to quit playing at casinos (online or live) FOREVER. A close family member of yours dies if you break the contract.

25,000 - 50,000 dollars. But I would continue to gamble, take risks in stock and other miscellanous ways. Probably more poker. It's a low number I think compared to what others might say.

not even $1

Not even $1.. .in order to stop gambling all I needed was to acknowledge I had a problem..

I am all in for online and live gambling, but its a fact that some people can play and others don't. Compulsive gambling might be the worst problem I have ever faced.

My respects to this adiction. Those of you that can enjoy a friendly poker game, enjoy it.

Those who have played over 2 nights without changing your clothes or having a break for eating or sleeping sit down one day and make a study of your life the past years.

How much to quit gambling

If I had to do this it would be $100,000. I don't play poker, other than video poker. I don't bet on sports, or much of anything else. Just mainly slots, for entertainment value. And once in a great while a lottery ticket or scratch off. I just like the games.

To quit gambling someone would have to give me like $10,000 to make me stop. Its not much, but at least it would give me a profit!

The $$$ is irrelevant. The offeror must be the devil given the terms of the contract. You will be tempted to gamble again and lose the life of a family member. I must have seen too many movies regarding this theme recently.

And because poker is skill and can thus theoretically give you profit until the end of your life.

Yeah, I feel sorry for anyone who missed that buried in the T&Cs.

Not sure I could ever stop gambling.. Unless I saw it as being a problem and it came down to I wasn't feeding my kids because I spent all the grocery money on Isis.. then, perhaps, I'd quit and never go back. I don't think I'd ever gamble a family members life, no matter how much I hate them.. lol.

On second thought, can I gamble a co-workers life instead? Think she'd last about 2 minutes before I deposited somewhere and started to play once the deal was made. The world would thank me. :D

I really dont want to stop. I dont think I ever will.

But, I love my family so much, it hurts. Nothing will ever come between me and my family.

Only if God said to me 'You gotta stop, or the family gets it'.

Then I will stop.

But until then....
