I would guess in the "ugly" vein of capitalism, the actual casino is located in a 3rd world country where pornhub can get away with paying workers subpar minimum wage.

I've seen a lot of internet casinos and sportsbooks over the years.

Never one with live dealers who are scantily clad women. This is a novel thing. I know some of you gamble on MMA. I know some people make good money playing poker online. One of my cousin in laws who used to work for konami quit his job and was earning 6 figures playing poker, afaik.

The level of people breaking down MMA has risen significantly over the last year or so. There isn't as much room for growth or intelligent breakdowns--as there used to be back when some of the posters on this forum were regularly breaking down fights better than UFC commentators. Too much saturation, shift to a different topic.

Dude I have been at this for five years and haven't made more then 100 bucks over the duration of that time so I'm not sure what you mean by people being able to make money. It was getting over saturated five years ago when I started this and it has only gotten worse. As for the scantily clad girls and online gambling I agree this is pure novelty that'll wear off at some point.

But you were also not really breaking down stuff (or you weren't sharing/linking here) or at least not consistently (which is very important to get followers and thereby money). You've mainly had your Top10 lists which are a nice gimmick/appetizer, but not nearly enough content to keep followers. You also never really invested in basic equipment like a reasonable webcam, microphone and lamp to give your videos at least the slight touch of professionalism. I know, you explained your excuses or reasons or however you want to call it, why that is like that, and I'm not picking on you, it's just the explanation why you couldn't turn your hobby into profits.

Well that's interesting. I can't find fault with it, to be honest. If you are of age, gamble and watch porn all you want. Mixing them isn't any different in terms of me being against it so long as it's legal.

Well also the fact that poker is a game of luck and it involves stuff like bluffing (which is literally a gamble that you're opponents will think you have more or call it), strategy, knowing when to quit and a whole lot of other stuff. Not to mention that with this fake cryptocurrency I can be ALOT more reckless cause I'm not really losing anything.

What methods did you use to earn $100?

I saw the homepage of the woman who shot up youtube. She posted a screenshot of them paying her $0.11 for 360,000 views on her youtube video.

Wat?

There's math and statistics that goes with winning @ poker afaik. I've never played poker seriously in my life but afaik the basics would be breaking down the probability of the cards you need for the hands you're looking for contrasted with the probability of your opponents doing the same et al.

The little bit of money that I've made with sports journalism was made through freelance work and one paid endorsement. As for the YouTuber that shot up YouTube HQ, she probably got shafted the same way I did when they changed the requirements for the partnership program AGAIN. Lastly when it comes to betting on this site I don't give a rats ass, I just make what I think is the correct bet and if I lose boo hoo I lost fake cryptocurrency big deal.

Around 2011 I won 8 bitcoins gambling on MMA.

8 bitcoins could be worth near to $160,000 at its peak price.

Of course, gambling being gambling I lost all of it back when 1 bitcoin was worth like $12.

If someone could master gambling (and the way it preys upon human emotions like greed causing people to make bad betting decisions) they could make a lot of $$.

I've been watching some world series of poker and it's partially pure luck and strategy in terms of doing stuff like bluffing. Also the house wins for games that involve the house.

wow, that's interesting :D Have anyone tried it ? I would like to try it, because I like gambling very much. I am playing different games of chance, it's my hobby. I love playing such games because it relaxes and makes me feel great. Usually, I am playing only on the verified casinos that are having a good reputation on this site. This is a security measure, because nowadays there are a lot of frauds on the internet, and it's very easy to lose money. I am going to try this casino as well, it seems very interesting.
