I think that the point to remember here is that by the standards set by most studies, 85% of rabbi's, ministers, and priests would be problem gamblers. I've never bet with a "bookie", never bought a lottery ticket, lost less than $200 in my whole life playing cards, and yet in the University of Michigan study, I would contribute to the percentage of problem gamblers. My brother is a big IU fan and we always bet a pitcher on the outcome of the annual civil wars in Indiana.
