Message:  Hacham:
I have a couple of questions about betting or placing wagers:

1) Is it permissible to bet on sports with a non-jewish bookie or website?
2) If a game you are betting on is on shabbat, and you place the bet beforehand and collect after shabat is there any issur of acquiring on shabat?
3) Can one go gamble in Atlantic City or Las Vegas?
4) Is it permissible to have a "once a week card game" with your friends (jews) for money?

You have the best answers to halacha on planet Earth

Thank you
