This dream can have as many interpretations as there are ways to gamble, so you must try to correlate all the contributing factors and remember that the meaning will be modified by the relation of the sums involved to your own financial status; but as a general guide it is considered a dream of contrary; therefore, if you dreamed of winning a significant amount, the dream is warning you not to risk anything it would hurt you to lose.

GAMBLING

If your unconscious depicted you as rolling a dice and hoping for a six, does this suggests that you feel as if your destiny is not in your hands but in the hands of fate, or that the direction your life will take is out of your control? Or are you dicing with death and taking a big risk in your life? Any dream in which you are gambling may be considered a warning that you are risking something for which you have worked in real life and that the odds are stacked against you. On the other hand, if your gamble came off in dreamland and you won a bet or money, perhaps your dreaming mind is encouraging you to be a little less cautious in waking life and take a chance on something as it has the potential to yield great reward. This does not have to be the lottery or a horse race; it could be an emotional investment. Winning a large amount of money on the lottery in dreamland is a common wish-fulfillment dream. The dream may also be warning you that if you hope to achieve your goals without any effort expended on your part, your chances of success are minimal. Freudians relate lottery or money dreams to anal preoccupation and the desire to break with miserliness.

Making any kind of wager or bet in your dream may stand for a gamble you are taking in waking life. Your dreaming mind is urging you to weigh up the odds and consider how much you are risking. The rhythmic gallop of the horses may symbolise sexual intercourse and if you are betting on a horse in your dream, this may reflect the emotional weight of success or failure as far as a relationship is concerned. Playing for high stakes at poker in your dream can imply that you are being too impressionable and emotionally insecure in your personal relationships, whilst to play poker with strangers indicates a lack of emotional connection in your life.

If you visit a fortune teller in your dream, this expresses concern about your future prospects; if you are a skeptic, such a dream may represent a crisis of faith in the powers of reason.

GAMES

Psychological / emotional perspective: Specific games such as football, baseball, rugby and cricket (which are team games) represent for many the strong ability to identify with a ‘tribe’ or a group of people. They indicate the way in which we gain identity and how we connect with people.

A referee in such a game signifies the monitoring of our behaviour. In dreams, games that require the power of thought and strategy – such as chess or draughts – often give some idea of how we should be taking a situation forward. Decisions may need to be made where we have to gauge the result of our action and take into account our opponent’s reaction.... Dream Meanings of Versatile

If you enjoyed the game in your dream, you can anticipate pleasant sailing ahead; however, if you were bored or annoyed by it, you can expect a spell of petty vexations.

Vision: Dreaming about the lottery: be prepared for dishonesty and don’t have too many illusions. Flaying a game for money: deceit and quarrels ahead.

VIDEO GAMES

Video games are symbolic of total and utter escapism and mindless thought. They are a modern phenomenon that will have very different symbolic meaning based on your personal relationship to them.

The diehard gamer will have a joyous experience of that escapism, while a critic might hold a more judgmental perspective. Where you stand on this continuum will provide the full picture for your interpretation. There is a perspective of video games that connects to a type of skill building; however, those skills have very little practical value outside of the realm of playing the game repeatedly. This is where the element of mindless thought enters into the symbolic meaning of video games.

The presence of a video game in a dream is an ironic appearance of detachment and should be considered as a possible defense against whatever the unconscious mind may be attempting to express.

If someone in your dream is playing a video game, understanding the character aspect in you that the person represents will identify what area of your consciousness is avoiding reality.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams
