Re: very uncomfortable that gambling comes under

In the US gambling on this order of magnitude is always associated with The Mob, i.e. breaking people's legs, machine guns, and murder for hire. In Vegas, the mob had enough influence in government that their practices got legalized. Yeah, people like Trump have tried to clean it up, but NYC/Jersey would be the next city after Vegas most commonly associated with The Mob by US citizens. So over here it is tightly linked to "stuff that might lead to death or disablement".
