    If the biggest country in the world knows the dangers of gambling, why does our government not....simple, the gambling equation Venues + Aristocrat+Governments equal your money....and without gambling addicts they wouldnt exist....the new generation is coming thru, kids and they are gambling more than us, getting addicted before they have lived....no we need to eradicate gambling of any form, and bury the providers..
