Abstract:     
"Winning at Craps" takes the theory used in the tobacco suits and asks whether casinos might be liable for social costs in suits by the states. The cause of action in nuisance, the defense of assumption of risk, cause in fact and proximate cause are evaluated. Policy arguments dealing with the legality of gambling, addiction and taxation are considered.
