When I started sports betting and playing poker with bitcoin a couple of years ago, I bought about 5 BTC to use at sites like CloudBet, Nitrogen Sports and BetCoin. The price back then for a single BTC was about $300 so my total investment was about $1,500. In that time I've lost thousands of dollars playing poker and betting on the NFL and NBA but according to the balances on my accounts, I'm still about $10,000 up. This kinda makes me feel that the best form of gambling you can do right now is buy a bunch of bitcoin and just leave them in your betting account for a few years. Sure, you might end up losing everything, but there's also a chance you'll make 10x. When the price of bitcoin goes up $200, I get the same kind of rush that I get when a horse I've backed crosses the finish line first so I don't feel I'm missing out on much. Anyone else feel the same?
