It's not as if literal penny-ante poker games have not been played in living memory.

Also, check out the histiory of cards. The conventional history si that hand-painted Tarot cards existed in the TL4 period but were used for fortunetelling instead of gaming.

A TL4 European-style gambler probably works mostly with dice games rather than cards. They might be made dice rather than simple sheep's bones such as Roman soldiers used.
