Moreover, in ordinary parlance, a person who plays for small stakes to give zest to the game is not said to gamble; gambling connotes playing for high stakes. In its moral aspect, although gambling usually has a bad meaning, yet we may apply to it what was said about betting see Betting. On certain conditions, and apart from excess or scandal, it is not sinful to stake money on the issue of a game of chance any more than it is sinful to insure one's property against risk, or deal in futures on the produce market.

Most people seek money above all things because they are under the false impression that once they have money they will be eternally happy. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Yes we need money to live on and the deprivation of money can cause great suffering. But money, in and of itself, is not what makes us happy or sad. It may make us happy for a short time, but then we are back to our very selves again, happy or sad. It is God, family, friends, animals, nature a clean conscience that makes us happy.

When you loose cash, you feel it. When you loose these chips, your are not so aware of it because it is a step away from the real thing, cash.

The free will has been removed and there for it is not sinful. But the word I use is vice. Vice is a repeated bad habit or sin that then becomes habitual. We still go to hell for vices that we did not fight or confess.
