Gambling can be not just a hobby, a devastating practice or a foolish way to gain an income with a delusional practice or just a dangerous addiction. For very very few can be also an oracular way, a practical form of karma yoga as well. Some people I have met used to bless deck of cards for a specifical purpose (the opening of a new business for example) and name the other players with the opponent forces (lack of clients, bad organizations etc) and then played their game. As a result, the action of every player had an oracular meaning and was thus interpreted accordingly. A further step into folk practices of the past and advanced use of the cards.
