Halacha - Supermarket Trolleys
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: If the cart is "stolen," it may not be used. However, it is questionable if you should suspect this happened when it is possible that one store purchased old carts from a second. Additionally, it may be that both stores are owned by the same corporation and share assets. Furthermore, it is possible that there is an understanding, verbal or tacit, among the store owners to share carts.

The bottom line is, I just do not know enough about the circumstances to give a definitive answer regarding an admittedly suspicious situation.

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.
