Yup its wrongs but it is not a sin. Although it is not a sin it may lead to sin.

Can Jesus do something wrong that is not a sin?

Gambling is supposedly wrong but it's not like I give a shit. I do it anyway. Card games are not sinful, gambling is sinful. The act of betting away ones money is a sin because greed is the underlying factor: Avarice for more money or possessions.

Agreed. Not sure if it's a sin, but it is unwise.

I don't think gambling is a sin. For example I like go fishing on Tuesdays, I play in a torment and pay an entry fee, all for the hope some big fish will bite. Essentially the same thing as gambling.

Just don't get consumed by gambling.
