Gambling has become a significant public addiction problem in Britain since recent changes in legislation.
In Britain, 430,000 people are known to have a gambling problem, with another 2 million at risk of developing one. Reports tell us that one person can directly affect 6-10 additional people gambling, putting the number that could be affected at 2.5-4.3 million.
