It is wrong of the big names in poker to have gambling on our poker sites.

      By gambling I am referring to roulette and betting, I have noticed that most sights now offer on our desktop software, gambling, a temptation that I keep falling fall. Again crashing my winnings so far on gambling.
      These poker sights make enough money as it is, and do not need to add temptation to our beautiful game.
      People on a tilt will be tempted by the sort of entrapment they offer on our desktop.
      I am not even a gambler, but often in boredom I have a look, because it is there. There is no need to spoil our game by adding garbage,

      rant over.

      You can generally disable these side games through the software options. If that fails, there's always self control?

      Have you ever heard the phrase?---
      Lead us not into temptation.
      Well the sites are here to make money and one of those ways is to---
      Lead you into temptation
      If you do not have any self control then you better throw your computer out the window before you go broke.
      Do not blame the sites for your lack of self discipline.

      It is wrong for supermarkets to offer bad food on their shelves. By bad food I am referring to cakes and chocolate, I have noticed that most sites now offer on our shelves, sugar, a temptation that I keep falling fall. Again ruining my gym progress so far on cake.
      These supermarkets make enough money as it is, and I do not need to add temptation to my beautiful salads.
      People in a bad mood will be tempted by the sort of entrapment they offer on our shelves.
      I do not even have a sweet tooth, but often in boredom I have a nibble, because it is there. There is no need to spoil our health by selling garbage.

      Have some self-control ffs. Do you not realise that people are attracted to sites by casino games and then potentially play poker, rather than the other way around?
