The Gambler was about poker, although the album cover depicted another game, Faro. The casinos took Faro out because for most of the game it was an even money bet with no house edge.
At the time Faro was popular, many gamblers were illiterate, so a banner with a tiger on it depicted the Faro game. Trying to beat the game was known as "bucking the tiger", thus the tiger sign.
As far as "true" gamblers, many who bet sports, horses, and play poker would look at lotto as merely entertanment because of the extremely loin odds. among tsable game "gamblers", there are those who "came to stay, not to play" who are not really true gamblers but known as grinders or even fleas.
In casino games, a trhue gambler is known as someone who will put as much in action as fast as he can to win as much as he can as fast as he can and get out.
All too often the house beats them, but they are the ones known as "players, not stayers".
Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.
There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
