    Thx for sharing, Pokerface!! It is a massive problem with youngster making bets in that age frame, not only in Britain. For example in Bulgaria, Serbia, Macedonia and the European part of Cypruss there are too many land-based casinos, where such people in that age try their luck or knowledge with the money their parents have given to them.

    It should be made an European clinic for such addicts, because I have seen loads of peopl under 27 who even gamble more that you can imagine.

    Opening a hospital is good, but prevention is better than cure. The minors must not have access to any gambling activity, online or offline.

    Starting special programs in schools, and why not in universities, could help the young generation have more information about gambling addiction and would give them more chances to make right decisions.
