Games of pure chance have nothing to do with me. One could have a dice throwing robot do it instead. Completely boring. I can better understand gambling in games of skill. But I enjoy golf & bridge without gambling, I don't get any advantage in betting on it - other than getting some companions who need to bet.
Two games that would be improved if I enjoyed gambling are poker and backgammon.
