Do they gamble actual money? Or just tokens that are returned after? – Ariel Mar 18 '13 at 21:13
@Ariel I am interested in both situations. – user1292 Mar 18 '13 at 21:15
They are very different (I think). Perhaps two separate questions that reference each other? – Ariel Mar 18 '13 at 21:16
Related: judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/1350/gambling-at-casino (your question specifically is not about casino - but I'm not certain that makes any difference). – Ariel Mar 18 '13 at 21:19
