Is Gambling an Alternative to Making Money Online?

Gambling is a great way to spend time and gain some extra money along the way, yes. However, making a living out of it can be very hard. Like any skill, it takes time and practice. This means constant gambling, studying stats and so much more. It also means accepting the risk that you can lose a lot of money, and potentially all of it.

But is it possible? Yes, it is possible. There are many professional gamblers in the world who had made their money solely on gambling. But how do they do it? This article will have a look at what it takes to make it as a professional gambler, and whether it is worth the time and risk.

Matched Bets

This is ideal for beginners and a great starting point. In short, it is the system that makes the most of free bets offered by online casinos for joining. While you can’t withdraw the free bet, you can withdraw the winnings you make off the free bet from here on out. 

Do this for several online casinos and you can make a steady source of extra money while you learn the ins and outs. It is also risk free, as you are playing with free bets.

Value Bettor

This is knowing more about a certain sport than bookies. This way you can tell when the odds are wrong and use them in your favour. This takes a lot of knowledge about a team or sport in order to make up your own odds and play to your advantage. 

This is the essence of beating bookies at their own game.


This involves studying the odds from different bookmakers in order to make a profit. If one bookies think Team A will win, but the other thinks Team B will win, they will offer different odds. If the margins are large enough, you can bet on both and make a profit.


Playing poker, blackjack or other skill-based casino games can also be lucrative way to win money. Because this is the most well-known form of professional gambling, it is also the hardest. There are far more people playing poker than any other casino game online. And beating them is only half the issue. You then have to beat what is called “the rake” which is the portion the casino takes from each hand.

You can also use card counting, which we are sure you have all heard of, but this is frowned upon, if not illegal, in many casinos.

You can use gambling as an alternative to make money. However, it takes a lot of knowledge, studying odds and bookmakers or skill. In some cases, this isn’t worth the trouble and effort you would need to go through to make a great amount of money. The casino will always win, how else can the remain in business?

However, if you want to try your hand at making some extra cash, which is more than possible, online gaming sites such as Getlucky Casino has amazing odds and games for you to try.
