One of the regular customers of the Las Vegas Strip and Downtown Las Vegas gambling houses, an American aged 26, was arrested in California and extradited back to Las Vegas. The reason for the arrest was the fact that on December 29 last year, she forgot her three-year-old child at the Wynn Las Vegas casino. Police officers commented that the arrested woman was charged with child abuse and neglect. Experts once again emphasize the dangers of gambling on human life. Dependent people are able to harm not only themselves, but also their loved ones or relatives. For this reason, new ways of dealing with this disorder are being earned all over the world. In Russia, the Ministry of Finance has already taken the initiative to create a unified register of players with gambling addiction.
