Say: "In them is a great sin, and some benefits for men,
but the sin is far greater than the benefit."

Cometh: Will Gambling be a Bad Bet for your Town?
O you who believe! Intoxicants, and gambling,
and sacrificing to idols, and divining arrows, are an abomination
of Satan’s handiwork. So avoid them
in order that you may be successful.
Satan only wants to excite enmity and hatred
between you with intoxicants and gambling,
and hinder you from the remembrance of God and from prayer.
So will you not then abstain?
Holy Qur’an 5:90-91
