Playing the Odds in Quantum Games?

These scenarios make me worry about quantum computing and other uses of entanglement.   What's a poor dice thrower to do?  How do we understand entanglements?  Are they just another kind of context we need to detect, measure, plan for?   The following is an overview, but technical.

In Quantum Games, There’s No Way to Play the Odds in

These games combine quantum entanglement, infinity and impossible-to-calculate winning probabilities. But if researchers can crack them, they’ll reveal deep mathematical secrets.
