Supreme Court on Gambling

It should, furthermore, be borne in mind that cockfighting although authorized by law is still a form of gambling.  Gambling is essentially antagonistic to the aims of enhancing national productivity and self-reliance.[24] As has been previously said, a statute which authorizes a gambling activity or business should be strictly construed, and every reasonable doubt resolved so as to limit rather than expand the powers and rights claimed by franchise holders under its authority.[25]
