Anybody can develop a gambling addiction. Any gender and any age.. this addiction can get anyone.
In the UK you legally need to be 18 years of age to gamble. However, there are already 55,000 children aged between 11-16 years old who are addicted to gambling. Children can develop gambling problems through things such as video games with a prime example being the packs in FIFA Ultimate Team.
This addiction doesn't just affect the gambler either. This will have an impact on all of the people closest to them such as family and friends.
If you think someone is dealing with a gambling issue then please speak to them and offer your support.
