The allure of gambling is difficult for teens to avoid. Gambling is promoted everywhere, from television celebrity poker, sporting events, and casino and lottery advertising, to scratch cards and even school fundraisers. Although gambling is theoretically tightly controlled, today many young people have easy access to gambling via the Internet. Increasingly, experts are emphasising the need for young people, teachers, and parents to be aware that gambling can be a high-risk activity with serious economic and health impacts if it gets out of hand. This excellent program features candid and at times emotional stories of young people, and the impact gambling has had on their lives and the lives of others.
