    I despise it, but I'm probably biased because my grandfather is heavily addicted to it (and cost the family a fortune trying to cover his debts).

    I understand how playing the odds feels good (have gone for broke in a lot of minigames in video games, haha) so I'd probably be comfortable with outlawing it. It's dangerously addictive and the destructive potential outweighs any sort of benefit IMO. I'd rather it be made illegal and go underground than be perpetuated on billboards and commercials like it's a cool thing to do -- too many people unwittingly get sucked into it through adverts when they could have never heard about it at all.
