Gambling is when you bet money on  something that is not certain to happen.
There are many different forms of gambling including card games, horse racing, poker machines and betting on sports games.
For some people gambling is a harmless form of entertainment, but for others it can become a serious problem.

Can you win money? 

The more you gamble, the more money you will lose.
