Halacha - Brilliant Gambler
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Yehonoson Hool

It's not clear from the question exactly what is involved. If there is "no real betting involved," then what is involved?

I suppose that if it's strictly legal there would be nothing forbidding it from a Halachic point of view, although one might argue that the other gamblers who are placing their money are assuming that they have at least a chance of winning, and if in fact they have no chance it might be considered as taking their money against their will.
