36. Some of gambling requires no skill.

An understanding of the odds can be helpful, but that is not skill:
- any game of a random number, like slot machines and roulette
- any game with dice, like craps

Games using cards usually require some skill. Games like poker require enough skill and decision making that the house does not play.
