My comments on the new Internet gambling bill passed and the regs. that will be coming out.
I have heard that in the regs. it will state you can play with a credit card; you can increase your line at any time even during play,
If that is the case its crazy.

We have over 400,000 addicted gamblers in N.J. and that # will for sure in cress as we add Internet gambling. Gambling addiction is an impulse addiction you will have addicted gamblers waking up in the middle of the night going to the computer in there birthday suits and

distorting there lives and there loved ones also in the heat of the moment in there addiction.

Legislators do not seem to understand the issue of compulsive gambling, because it is so hidden and invisible. What might seem like a casual, entertaining pastime to some, can turn into a devastating addiction for many people.

And yet after all these years we still don’t have Casino workers trained on gambling addiction—-1. Each casino licensee shall implement procedures and training for all employees who directly interact with gaming patrons in gaming areas for assisting patrons in obtaining information about problem gambling programs. That training shall, at a minimum, consist of information concerning the nature and symptoms of problem gambling behavior and how to assist patrons in obtaining information about problem gambling programs. The training shall be conducted by certified compulsive gambling trainers that are certified by the American Certification BoardArnie is a compulsive gambler who placed his last bet on 4/10/68
