A glamber checks horse race results at Sao Paulo Jockey Club in Sao Paulo, Brazil, September 21, 2015. Brazil's cash-strapped government is in talks with lawmakers over legalizing gambling to increase revenues as Congress balks at President Dilma Rousseff's efforts to overcome a budget deficit by raising other taxes. Rousseff's chief of staff, Aloizio Mercadante, ran the idea by lawmakers last week after they signaled the government will struggle to pass a controversial tax on financial transactions. Brazil has banned casinos since 1946 and it outlawed bingo halls in 2007 amid concerns they facilitated money laundering, though it allows federal lotteries and bets on horse racing.

A casino dealer collects chips at a roulette table inside Solaire Casino in Pasay city, Metro Manila, Philippines, March 27, 2015. The Philippines has emerged as one of Asia's hottest gambling hubs after it launched its 120-hectare (1.2 square km) gaming and leisure enclave called Entertainment City in the capital, modelled on the Las Vegas strip. When paying your final respects for a relative or friend, the last thing you might expect to see at the wake is people placing bets on a card game or bingo. Not in the Philippines. Filipinos, like many Asians, love their gambling. But making wagers on games such as "sakla", the local version of Spanish tarot cards, is particularly common at wakes because the family of the deceased gets a share of the winnings to help cover funeral expenses. Authorities have sought to regulate betting but illegal games persist, with men and women, rich and poor, betting on anything from cockfighting to the Basque hard-rubber ball game of jai-alai, basketball to spider races. Many told Reuters photographer Erik De Castro that gambling is only an entertaining diversion in a country where two-fifths of the population live on $2 a day. But he found that some gamble every day. Casino security personnel told of customers begging to be banned from the premises, while a financier who lends gamblers money at high interest described the dozens of vehicles and wads of land titles given as collateral by those hoping lady luck would bring them riches.

Retirees play poker at a singles club in Sun City, Arizona
Retirees play poker at a singles club in Sun City, Arizona, January 4, 2013. Sun City was built in 1959 by entrepreneur Del Webb as America?s first active retirement community for the over-55's. Del Webb predicted that retirees would flock to a community where they were given more than just a house with a rocking chair in which to sit and wait to die. Today?s residents keep their minds and bodies active by socializing at over 120 clubs with activities such as square dancing, ceramics, roller skating, computers, cheerleading, racquetball and yoga. There are 38,500 residents in the community with an average age 72.4 years. Picture taken January 4, 2013. REUTERS/Lucy Nicholson (UNITED STATES - Tags: SOCIETY)

Gambling chips are seen at the Casino Gran Madrid
Gambling chips are seen at the Casino Gran Madrid, September 26, 2012. A U.S. tycoon's plan for a massive "Eurovegas" near Madrid might look like a terrifying prospect for Spain's existing casinos, but the struggling local industry hopes to benefit from the arrival of a big new competitor. Spain's casinos have seen revenue fall 40 percent since 2007, hit by a prolonged economic crisis that has put the country at the centre of the European debt crisis. Picture taken September 26, 2012.
