Meaningful life includes Gambling

Gambling" can be purely monetary but more often revolves around the educated choices we make day in and day out. I stress "educated" A role of formal education is to lower rational risk-taking. You have learned more about cause and effect. You know better.

Gambling, and its nuances, exist on a continuum: real-life decisions to a slot machine. Gambling is a recreation: board games and lottery games of chance particular to a culture. After the Industrial Revolution, people had more time on their hands for "games" to fill the time.

I disagree, gambling erodes meaningfulness and causes too much suffering.

I cannot endorse gambling wholeheartedly, but I respect your perspective.
As long as you're being responsible, I will try to keep an open mind.
