Lucas's story

I always love pokies here and there. It start 15 years ago with $20. I remember I will be so happy to win $100.

As years go by the bet getting bigger.

I bet almost 70percent of my pay check.

Two years ago it got worse. I would lost 2000 a month and when I win more than 1000 I put it back hoping to get bigger win.

Yesterday was my last straw.

I start with winning 1300 then decided to go to other venue to play more and end up losing all 1300 plus My own money of 2400

I play for 8 hours straight and end up walking home due to dispare and disappointment in myself

Today I couldn't stop thinking about it and feel so ashamed.
