Gambling games can be broadly categorized into two types, chance-based games and skill-based games. Remember, while chance plays a greater role in chance-based games, it is a powerful factor in skill-based games. In all forms of legitimate gambling, game outcomes can never be predicted with 100% certainty, 100% of the time.
- Chance-Based (100% dependent on chance)
- Skill-Based (players have some influence, but chance remains a factor in the outcome)
