Praise Me or Curse Me

What am I?

You may praise your good fortune and curse all you hate,
Yet I rule all your chaos and gamble your fate.
By some I'm avoided by others I'm game,
Called by fat or slim, my meaning's the same.

I liked this riddle rhyme. I thought it was something to do with" Minnesota Fats" or "Slim Pickens". Silly, Silly me! I got it after the fact. Do more.

Cleverly worded, but the last line gave the answer!
Must have taken quite some time, to pen the teaser!
Keep going,
We're loving (it).

I believe the hint: "I'm dieing for you to guess!!" is a play on the word "die," which is the singular form of "dice". (Rolling dice is one way of taking a chance.) However, "dieing" as used in the sentence, is intentionally misspelled. The correct spelling is "dying".

Cute teaser, btw!!!

Nice going!! I love the ones that will make me think, and yet not over-tax my under-coffee'd brain first thing in the morning!!
Lovely job!!!

Yeah baby, I got it right (even though it was a bit simple)! It's better to start the morning w/out the brain being stumped! Nice job!

Well, this one was just a bit TOO easy for me. The last line gave it away. The poetry was good, but it's difficult to imagine that anyone would miss out on the "fat chance" or "slim chance" part...

I wonder why Imurray hasn't posed a "BORRRRING" comment yet? LOL

My Aunt Joys life is mainly through chance. She lived her life ALOT through chance. Funny this teaser should come today. She passed away this morning & I will put this in my favorites because it was REALLY GOOD & her life!

Although the poetry was beautiful, I don't really like this one at all. Chance? Hardly a riddle. It was a complete giveaway, making me want to look for a trick answer. Once again, nicely written, but it lacks the wit of some of the other teasers.

Gah, I didnt get it. But I never do so oh well...it was cool anyway.

At first I thought it was poker....and then I thought it was cigarettes....wow, i'm bad at this game....
Anywho, good one!

I thought it was chance until I read the hint, and then misread the "dieing" and thought that maybe the answer was the grave. That was fun and clever. Thanks!

Although it is new to me and many others, I can't say that I notice it has been used before without stepping on some peoples toes. So I hope everybody enjoys it. If you saw it before so be it Try to enjoy it again.

I got it but I thought the hint confused it more than it helped.
