Gamblers with expressions of anxiety and despair sit or stand around an octagon-shaped table. One man slumps in his chair, asleep and with his purse empty. One man resembles Captain Topham; others may be caricatures as well. In the center of the table is a circular roulette mechanism with the letters E and O for even and odd.
