You may gamble for your life sometimes,
Not life for gamble... :-)
At first, a long time ago (and now too) they do cockfight on Odalan or
ceremony in Pura that give the 'Caru' or give a sacrifice to God by
the cock blood from this event. But many people do this - cockfight -
This is one of dark side of Balinese, I think. We called the man who gamble in this event as 'Bobotoh'. I heard many bad stories than good stories from Bobotoh's Life, especially for his family and children.
I don't know this event is legal or illegal, but I saw many people went to a 'place' and brought many cocks. I just want to make documentation than shows their 'bad' habit. The place is a large 'stadium' that more than 3000 people held and gambling here.
