Such isn't the case for investing.

not in the long run it doesn't...
sure an individual spin of a wheel or roll of a dice or round of cards relies on chance - in the long run though the revenue flows towards the person with the edge - in table games this is usually the casino, in poker this is also the casino but also the dealer (tips) and the few players with sufficient skill to beat the game + rake after tips..
in sports betting this is bookies + exchanges... and the few sportsbetters able to get +EV bets on and beat the vig...
in investing you just need to beat your fixed costs... generally you've got dividends so long term dumb investing in indecies or blue chips you're still probably going to be +EV.... but if trading on a shorter time frame you need a better edge to beat the much higher costs in terms of crossing the spread and paying commissions
in short the OP is basically correct - investing, trading, gambling - it is all pretty similar

Once you understand that the "house" in this example is the exchange/market-maker, you'll realize how stupid your comment is.
>>Da exchange is trickin us all it's da jews maaan
Don't go full retard, son. The exchanges takes fees for services rendered, just like the house takes a rake at the poker table.

You absolutely can gamble in the stock market. But you can also invest wisely.
There's risk in all of life ventures, just varying degrees of it.
