Online gambling from the US just about fits that description. The online casino strangers you play with provide the games because they have a vested interest in winning.
johnniekoda, Thanks, that's good advise and makes a great deal of sence. The web site wizardofodds had a link where you did not risk money but got to practise using their advise. I found that useful as I would look at my cards and decide what to do and then look at the advice and see if I was right. They could still be "suffling in the back room" but the worst that can happen is I get bad advice. I'll be careful not to do any real gambling except live and probably only on the ship for now. So far even on the practise site I have not been able to win so my goal is to "buy" and hour of fun with $100 or less.
