People were not sympathetic, rather they looked at him and laughed at his bad luck. He continued to play till he finished all his money. 



6 :  The shopkeeper fooled Rasheed by making him believe that it was luck that got the old man and the boy their prizes and concealed the fact that they were his friends. He convinced Rasheed that it is a game based on luck and continued to trick him.
