Funny thing is, the people who possess Siddhis to level of being able to claim that prize would have no desire to do so. Attachment to the ego, desire for wealth and such things, all act to inhibit the powers. The Siddhis exist based on causes and conditions. Greed and ego are 2 things that can cause the Siddhis to cease. Even desire to develop the Siddhis is often enough to prevent their attainment.

Ahh, but that's cheating. Basically it's the same as stealing, and imho would incur the same karma as if you had robbed the casino.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." -- C. S. Lewis
