One for the hard core losers which is 95+% of us to contemplate. The full quote is:
"The highest levels of gambling participation are reported by people who have better general psychological health and higher life satisfaction. And people who have poorer psychological health are less likely to report gambling participation."

And it comes from here:
https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/gambling-related-harms-evidence-review/gambling-related-harms-evidence-review-summary--2

Which is from a government report inspired by people who hate what you do.

This is literally insane: a government is going into battle against an activity that appears to correlate with people being better in general. Then again Vlad just wanted to sell us cheap energy and stop us supporting social fascists and look what the government take was on that.
Governments - don't trust 'em.

Ive always thought people who gamble, and both win and lose on a regular basis, are probably more equipped mentally to cope with things going right or wrong in their lives, as they are way more used to highs and lows.
