A MULTIMEDIA SERIES ABOUT THE HUMAN TOLL OF COMPULSIVE GAMBLING
This is a compelling and informative look at the human toll of compulsive gambling as well as the brain behavior and science of the gambling industry. The series is strengthened by a powerful video diary following one man’s descent into gambling addiction with strong interactive engagement. The Las Vegas Sun explored problem gambling three ways — through the experiences of an addict using a citizen journalist; by examining what happens inside the brain of an addict; and by considering the role of slot machine designs in feeding gambling addictions. The web site also provides support and resources to help gambling addicts.
