Start gambling at an early age

The most important finding of the NCIG research is that the best gamblers are those that have started gambling at an early age.

Young children have not yet been brainwashed by moralistic views imposed upon us by society taboos. Also, young children are fearless and will bet the maximum amount without even giving the matter any thought. This is a skill that can only be acquired at an early age, so the sooner your children start gambling the better. The trick is to start early, as it's been scientifically proven that skills learned at a young age stay with a person forever.


More evidence for the role of genetics in the development of gamblers

Scientists have been looking for the "gambling gene" for decades. This gene has finally been found. With the help of genetic engineering, in the future, we will be able to pre-program newborns to be delivered with a gambling disorder genetically built in.

Also, the recent discovery that apes are natural born gamblers brings new hopes for further progress in the field of genetics and gambling.


Only money can bring true happiness

It has been statistically proven that the most happy people in the world also happen to be those that have the most money. Is that a coincidence? Not really. Our research showed that there is a direct connection between the level of happiness and the amount of money that a person has to his/her name. More money, more happy.

The best way to amass large amounts of cash, quickly, is through gambling. This is where the NCIG can help.


Gambling reluctance disorder syndrome

People that were not gifted with the gambling gene or that have not been brought up in proper gambling environments are manifesting signs of what we call the gambling reluctance disorder syndrome. This syndrome is hard to overcome because these people suffer from the lack of impulse to gamble. However, the NCIG offer a cure, which involved a minor surgical procedure.
