In this quote, Samantha Bee seems to be highlighting the financial imbalance between casino profits and player winnings from gambling. She notes that while players collectively won over $1 billion playing poker last year, the casinos themselves made $27 billion in revenue simply by facilitating the games and having patrons gamble on their properties.

Bee’s comparison implies the house (i.e. the casinos) will almost always come out vastly ahead financially compared to even the best of luck for individual players over time, due to the inherent statistical advantage built into games of chance.

Her comment underscores how gambling establishments are highly profitable businesses due more to consistent margins than any one player’s occasional big win.
