I don't know if any other person does this but my friend and I are always of the habit of placing bets whenever we are playing games. This helps us mean business while gaming. Some consider this to be a wrong way to enjoy gaming but it sure makes it very interactive and interesting for you.

Do you place bets while playing? Is anything wrong with doing so with gaming?

I have done this a few times when I was still a teenager, mostly when I was coming back from school. I would branch to a game house and use my left over snack money to place bets on games. Sometimes if I'm lucky, I would win some and on my unlucky day I would lose out woefully. I don't do this anymore now but between my few friends do it once in a while.

There was this gaming house close to where I used to live when I was still younger and I can never forget all the scenes that used to be created there by some parents who come to drag their kids out to the game house. It's not something funny because sometimes they would fight over money placed on bets in the game house.

Your neighborhood must be one tough one to bring up a kid in and I do believe that there would be cases of police arrest as a result of the fights that emanate from the game house activities because it's likely possible that people living around would call the cops and report.

You are very correct in tagging my neighborhood as one tough one to having a kid brought up in it. There has been several arrest in the game house because of the fights and commotion caused by gamers in there. The only thing that game house owner did was get familiarized with the police to avoid unnecessary harrassment of his customers.

The game house owner seems to be a good business man because what he did with the police department and officers is the only way he could ensure the flowing of his business without too much troubles. I respect his business mind and thinking incentives.

Yes in my opinion, the man actually knows what he was doing with his business. In fact I'm of the opinion that he ran the game house business exceptionally good in having to make an arrangement with the police should he get sudden police invasion of his business premises.

Never placed bets on the FF games. We used to do that with the CSGO and few other games. And even on minecraft but not much doing that with the FF series of games. So it does kind of sound a bit different in that context.

In truth, he is actually a wise man as you put it because not all individuals would think strategically in such a way to have their business investment and establishment secured from possible embarrassment and shutdown.

I did it back then a couple of times but stopped, I haven't tried it again with Final Fantasy games for a while now but I definitely do it a lot more often with soccer games like FIFA and PES.

That man's game house taught me a lot of lessons on things that goes on within a gaming center that no one ordinarily can discover unless you are part of the crew that always camp in the game house. In as much as the game house owner have everything under control, I wouldn't allow myself to frequent there because definitely one day, someone would fall a victim.

Some of my close friends who didn't understand Final Fantasy games well would never agree to placing bets when playing but the gurus in the game would be the one pushing me to bet with them. I did for some time, lost some and win some. It was all part of the fun.

I still place bets today both in playing FIFA games as well as PES anytime I played with my friends. It's a lot more fun when playing soccer with bets placed on who is going to be the winner. I even still play outside bets in real football.

I think it can be fun if the things are friendly. But often they don't end up that way. So we have to see what may or may not work out for us. And that's what I have learned from my experience.

You are absolutely correct with that assertion, on the first start of placing bets, it's always fun but when one loses much continously over a long period of time, it definitely gets sour and brings about transfer aggression.

You can win a lot of money through that, as long as you are playing with mature people.
I have actually won quite a reasonable amount of money through placing bets on games and I equally lost a reasonable amount as well. I would call it a 50/50 shot. It's never a one way streak when it comes to winning bets placed on games. It's just like gambling.

I do think they have online sites for playing video games and placing a bet as well these days- but if you think about it, this kind of gambling requires skill as well. But unlike when you play slot machines and roll craps - or play blackjack, you tend never to get any better at these games. They now have video games to gamble on in Vegas and Atlantic City and they require more skill !

It is something that I never did all through my gaming life for I always want to play the game for fun and nothing more. The dangers of placing bets while gaming can go sour and that is the reason we need to be cautious when we play games. Some bugs in some games can make things change and the need for us to avoid such situation where fight can break out.

The truth is that for a gamer to play bets on games, you really need to know what you are doing and can be able to manipulate things to your favor. I am against any form of cheating in games, if not for that reason, I would have been placing bets on games that I know that I can play well.
