Gambling is legal, in the secular country that we live in. This surely means that it's as legal on days which one religion holds dear as on days which no religion holds dear. Unless we're planning to ban gambling on the Jewish Sabbath, or at Eid, etc?
To ban gambling on Good Friday would be as preposterous as making retailers hide cigarettes under the counter whilst still allowing them to sell cigarettes. Oh, hold on, that's what the Govt are proposing to do ;0)
...if you press it, they will come.
