There are gambling degrees- yes you heard that right! There are small courses or small segments as part of some other major courses offered in gambling by some educational institutes. These are often supported by the leading casinos in the casino industry themselves. There are also game specific courses if you wish to learn and master any of them. And talking about the other skills required, employability skills, business acumen, finance management skills, you need them all in addition to social and interpersonal skills as well.
There is loneliness and there’s another bag of assorted emotions:
For those who love traveling single, it would be fun- true. But then how much of single traveling can you handle? Because these are not going to be the usual pleasure trips exploring new lands. You would also be working. Though business mixes with pleasure here to some extent, not entirely though as you would also be focusing on improving your skills and gaining more knowledge. There are some professional gamblers who complain how lonely it can get sometimes. This is not, however, the only emotion you would feel. There are age-old superstitions attached to all the sports and so is the case with gambling as well. There might be region specific superstitions. How you handle them also matters. Then comes the peak emotions when you win or lose. Never get too excited or carried away by the wins or depressed and lost by the losses. This is, in fact, the primary requisite for any type of gambler.
