Doubt that is even the real number, probably much higher still and won't help the racing cause around responsible "skilled" gambling.

I wouldn't lose that in a year, but then I AM  a two-quidder.Blush
Depends on the stakes that you are playing I suppose.

I mean, maybe for some of you guys that represents a two or three points loss.

It's the addictive games like roulette and slots that is >95% of the problem and that is the area that needs to be controlled.

Don't think there are anywhere near as many problem gamblers with sports (horses, dogs et al) betting.

Any study needs to determine where the problem lies (slots and roulette) and tackle it IE limit spin stakes and enforce loss limits.

If you lose a fortune on here just do the opposite of what you've been doing. That's how I made my holy grails. If your back system runs at -10% roi long term then lay those picks instead.

Lol!
Gaze, I've considered that.

Yes but when I back Nichol's runners they lose and when I lay them they win.

If you can afford to lose £614 a month and enjoy punting so what .....buy a new car and lose 5 grand driving it from the showroom , spend 5 or
10 grand on a family holiday and no one cares if you can or cannot afford it.

It might sound a lot but it's the equivalent of £12 per adult per month. I.e. one lottery ticket each weekend and half the weekday draws.
