Chad puts all his money on roulette #8(his lucky number,lost his virginity at that age)
And wins millions but doesn't realise he won,he doesn't even know the rules.

While an incel spends hundreds of hours learning to count cards and when he finally gets over inhibition to enter a casino goes broke in 10mins.

No it is a simple concept to comprehend, game addiction is caused more by personality disorders/mental health than IQ itself.

Dumb healthy individual don't have gambling addiction as well, they don't find as much pleasure in the dopamine rush, because they experience plenty of it in their daily life, and they follow the social narrative and surroundings (instead of thinking for themselves) which is often/mostly not to gamble. Unhealthy people need that because they feel miserable inside, it is their source of pleasure/joy and form of escape, that is why it becomes an addiction, which can include smart people, some actually don't care about the money, all they care about is the dopamine rush.

the money you spend on gambling (and lose) can buy you more dopamine in other ways

They can't see that, they found a constant reliable source of dopamine and stick to it.

Just works like any other addiciton, you get a dopamine rush from winning, so you keep playing, basic Skinnerbox.
