They stand to lose too much money because of one small feature.

No I don't think the gambling feature will return, nor do I think they will try to replace it.
I think assuming that children are going to start gambling because of a virtual slot machine in a Pokémon game is silly. I grew up with them in RBY/GSC and look, I'm not gambling. Do I understand why it was removed? Technically yes. Is it possible that there is a correlation between the Game Corner having a slot machine and children growing up to gamble because of it? Yeah, I suppose so. Do I still think it's silly? Yup.
