    Lifestyle Legalized Sports Gambling

    Does anyone here gamble on sports (if you live in a state where it's been legalized)? Colorado was one of the first states to legalize it here in the last few years (not counting Nevada and New Jersey of course) and ever since it's been legal, seems like every other ad, whether it's on TV, billboards, radio, podcasts, you name it, it's for the sports gambling apps.

    I haven't tried it yet because I think it would become too easy to become addicted, especially with all the introductory offers they dangle to try and get you to sign up. I mean it would be really easy to start with only a few bucks here and there to graduating to spending a LOT on gambling, especially with the app right on your phone and having instant access.

    There's some kind of legislative activity going on, but as of today, sports betting isn't legal in Georgia.

    Like I said above, basically every other advertisement you see or hear in Colorado is for sports gambling apps. You can't avoid it.

    It used to be that you couldn't bet on a single line for sports betting in BC, you had to make at least 3 bets (I'm not sure the history of that, it was weird) but it's legal now.

    Frankly I don't understand sports gambling, and I don't want to know because I think it would get too tempting to throw $20 here and there and become hooked I don't have an addictive personality but with the betting apps it seems a little too easy.

    Agree 100% about it becoming "too easy" with all the sports betting apps. And then the worst thing that could happen would be to win your first few bets.

    Do you have a budget that you allow yourself?

    Just was looking at the sports betting apps in Colorado, when Barstool launched their app back in August, that made 24 freaking different sports betting apps that are legal to operate in Colorado now. No wonder there are so many fucking ads.

    I don't know what app they use but I have a couple buddies who went deep down the rabbit hole of sports gambling. Started with NFL bets, next thing they knew they were betting on obscure table tennis competitions in South Africa at 1 in the morning They're fine, they were betting small amounts, but I think I'll steer clear. I have vices already thanks.

    Not really. I don't bet large amounts. I hit a 4 team MLB parlay last night that paid 11-1. two dogs two favorites.
