Yeah. This is the way "gamble" is commonly used. Under @EzekielRaiden's definition, Poker, Blackjack and similar games wouldn't be gambling, because you have a good amount of control over the game.Where here "gamble" means anything where you're putting something at risk in hopes of gaining a benefit, regardless of whether the house always wins or not.
The stock market, to me, is a gamble.
