Persian Language/The Persian for 'as long as it doesn't lead to gambling'

Question
Greetings Saeed,

This is a question I have asked elsewhere, but I have received nothing resembling a satisfactory answer.

As you know, people can say “I bet you” without actually having any intention of putting money on – it's just a form of friendly argument.

In Marmulak, the man in charge of the prison says, “There's nothing wrong with betting as long as it doesn't lead to gambling.”

His words:
شرطبندی به تنهایی ایرادی نداره .....

Unfortunately, I didn't catch the rest. Please could you complete the Persian sentence?

All the best, and many thanks,

Simon

Answer
Hi Simon,

شرط بندی ایرادی نداره تا زمانی که به قمار بازی ختم نشه
شرط بندی ایرادی نداره تا زمانی که به قمار بازی نرسه
شرط بندی  یرادی نداره تا زمانی که قمار بازی نشه
شرط بندی ایرادی نداره تا زمانی که قمار نشه
شرط بندی ایرادی نداره تا زمانی که قمار نباشه

You can omit به تنهایی here.

Best
Saeed
