The quest for quick money has seen most Ghanaians in contemporary times resort to gambling. This is also as a result of the increasing emergence of sport betting companies and week-in-week-out, bettors invest sums of money hoping to reap substantial amounts to increase their fortunes. However many of them go broke and cash-strapped after sometime, while few are able to make money consistently from betting.
Some also retire along the line and one young man, who was dealt a blow by betting this week took twitter to announce his retirement from the endeavour. The gentleman identified on twitter as Aboa Banku was another victim of betting heartbreak and believes quitting is the best option for him, but his followers reacted and while some didn't understand his decision, others schooled him on other betting strategies to help him win. Have a look at the post and the reactions.
There were some shocking results in football matches that ensued over the weekend which render most wagers unsuccessful and it got almost every bettor wailing. The likes Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, Ajax Amsterdam and several elite European clubs lost their matches, something bettors least expected. At times these shocks and heartbreaks go to the extent of forcing some of bettors to take their lives and one of such incident happened not long ago, when a young man from Kumasi committed suicide by hanging himself in his room, after he lost a bet he staked with 60,000 cedis.
Nonetheless these heartbreaks are partly due to the fact that, indulgents of betting refuse to heed the trademark advise the betting companies always give them, thus bet responsibly. This literally mean bettors have to wagger only with amounts they can afford to lose. Moreover betting is a game of chance, and the pendulum can swing to your side today and swing to the opposite side tomorrow which makes it imperative for bettors to comply with the advise to bet responsibly.
