Hedonism and gambling

Hedonists want to win. They really want to win. Losing isn’t fun making you unhappy, resentful and unpleasant. Hedonists like easy money but not losing, which is the central problem in gambling as it often involves losing. Obviously hedonists can avoid gambling altogether but they want easy money. Or, can work hard to make winning likely. Hedonists gamble knowing about odds and enjoy the challenge. Those who are poor gamblers stop as chasing losses is the road to ruin.
