Pool gambling, or “parimutuel gambling”, is a betting system way more supervised than the betting pools organized between colleagues during office hours to kill time, and yet based on the same principles: For any events, such as horse racing, gambling, sporting events..., gamblers bet a sum of money on an outcome, usually the ranking of a participant to the event.
