Video Source:

Ashley Revell Returned to England with Two hundred and Seventy Two Thousand Dollars
after gambling his life earnings of $136,000

It was predicted he would lose the Lot in 1 year....instead of gambling it all away....

The video looks like its aimed at promoting gambling and not condoning it...
I have been to Casinos and my biggest loss was $40 dollars

and I still feel guilty about it...

Any thoughts?

What a mad lunatic! I'm surprissed no one yelled, "You'r an idiot!!" He did that for the attention and the devils work was in it, for the poker site to be put up. Yes I think it promotes gambling, a horrid side of me says, "Gee I can't wait to live on the wild side and spend $ on gambling!!!" > = [

It promotes both the depths of human stupidity and gambling. Gambling your entire life's savings on a single spin of the wheel has got to be one of the stupidest things I have witnessed to date.

Sure there's the adreneline rush that goes along with it. It the same reason thrill seekers do the crazy things they do. I wish people would use a little more common sense when it comes to things like this. This guy was lucky. Plain and simple. It's a good thing he didn't have a wife and kids who future hung in the balance.

Glorifying gambling is akin to glorifying drugs. Both are dangerous addictions.
