Wagering v. Insurance
The difference between gambling and insurance lies in the nature of the risk involved. In gambling, no risk exists before a wager occurs. Thus, gain or loss depends on one's decision. In insurance, risk pre-exists the contract. The possibility of loss therefore is not a choice; insurance simply attempts to mitigate it.
