Yes. However were I in possession of an infinite amount of money, grinding out even more money (if "more than infinite" is even a coherent concept) by sitting and playing roulette would probably come in pretty low on my list of things to do. "You can make a living playing roulette but only if you already have an infinite amount of money" is probably not what the class had in mind.
