§55-9-1. Gaming contracts void.
Every contract, conveyance, or assurance, of which the
consideration, or any part thereof, is money, property, or other
thing won or bet at any game, sport, pastime, or wager, or money
lent or advanced at the time of any gaming, betting, or wagering,
to be used in being so bet or wagered (when the person lending or
advancing it knows that it is to be so used) shall be void as
between the parties thereto, and as to all persons except such as
hold or claim under them in good faith, for value, and without
