Slot teams would derive their income from gambling. However, I think the organizer/bankroll was the only one who was in it to make real money. Apparently, the players would do it for kicks, and the occassional bonus since they were all pensioners.

Someone needs to design what looks and acts like a slot machine but actually does day trading.

How about something that looks and acts like it's a day trading terminal but is actually a slot machine?

How about this. Would you consider a person who plays VP and publishes books about it to be a professional gambler, provided all his income is derived from play and books about VP?


You'd have to include people who sell "betting systems" for roulette as well then ...

I don't know. Do they make any money from playing their system? This would aply to all system slesmen, including dice setters/controllers. Of course if you asked them they'd say yes.
