If it's a game of skill (as opposed to a game of chance), it's not gambling. You're not placing a wager on the space you think the light will stop on, you're just paying for a chance to make the light stop on a certain space to win prizes. Posting odds wouldn't make a lot of sense since winning isn't a matter of probability but a matter of the timing and reaction speed of the player.
