I say yes to that one definitely as 18 is the age we become actually adults in the eyes of the law in most countries. Also because 18 year olds deserve to have all of the rights and freedom that come with adulthood and not to be treated as children like not have all of the rights at all or have all of them taken away. 18 and 19 year olds are much closer to their 20s too and should be allowed their independence and freedom to do what they like as 18 years is quite long enough for children and young people to finally wait to become adults.
Kids may be not mature enough to do other things like ride a car or fill out warranty cards but adults make worse decisions in gambling than a kid would more than 70% of adults lose money in casinos but for kids it's 0% because they never got a chance!! So let's see how our kids will react maybe it will be beneficial but lets see
In my opinion, I feel if you can be an legal adult at age 18, and have your own house and be self independent. Then you can be independent on spending your money the way you want too. I also feel if the gambling age was lowered than teenagers would not want to do it illegally because they won't have that temptation. :)
There really is no need to argue the point. If our government gives us the freedom to enlist in our military and say "be safe and god bless you and thank you for your service" then I'm pretty sure losing $50 or winning $500 is not a bad thing. It's your life....If you mess up that's your fault...And whats the point if i can go on a cruise and gamble as well.
When you're 18, you're legally considered an adult. You are legally able to go out and die for your country, so why shouldn't you be able to go out and gamble? Or even drink, for that matter? It's absolutely ridiculous to use the notion of age/maturity as an argument, because it comes back to what I mentioned above. By that same logic, if you aren't mature enough to gamble at 18, by the same logic, you set yourself up to make it look as though you feel that they aren't mature enough to decide to risk their lives for their country.
The age of gambling should be lowered to 16 because this is the age kids are allowed to get there drivers license and are able to drive to their job and work for the money. So teens need to be able to go have a little fun every once in a while to spend their money
You can gamble at 18 in Florida, New York, Michigan, Rhode Island, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Wyoming, Idaho, California, Washington, and Oregon. They don't have any problems that I am aware of for this age group. The government needs to do their research before making unsupported and frankly insulting assumptions about us.
Kids these days need freedom. Life is very short. Gambling is with money not and achaholic activity. Gambling can be an addiction but its better than sitting on a couch and watching Netflix. All im saying is if a kid doesn't do a sport then they are just sitting around. Let them have freedom.

Too many people who are 21 and older are already led to financial ruin through gambling addiction. To open up such chances to 18 year olds would do no one any good. No, The legal gamling age should not be lowered to 18. 18 year olds are not yet ready or mature enough to make decisions when it comes to gambling.
