Okay, let’s say this once — it’s only called gambling. It’s really a form of entertainment where you pay big bucks for the glamour and excitement of the flashing lights, clanging bells and the sight of lithesome grandmothers feeding quarters into boxes that generate less real entertainment than the magic fingers massage option at Motel 6. To that end, a California appellate court dismissed (on public policy grounds barring judicial resolution of civil claims arising out of gambling contracts or transactions) a suit seeking to recover losses at the blackjack tables at an Indian casino. Even though the cards used were allegedly marked. (Tip: Even when they are not marked, you will lose.)
