After 12 years of addiction, an Australian woman lost more than $350,000 gambling. Aaron, 56, started gambling at a young age. He could've bought a house if it wasn't for his addiction.

Aaron Perkins-Kemp-Berger, 56, from Alice Springs, Australia, has been addicted to gambling for almost 50 years. He was finally able to quit after performing in a play inspired by his real-life experiences. He used to play card games with his pocket money as a kid and then in casinos. The final nail was slot machines.

There is a problem of gambling addiction in Australia. The government introduced a new measure that focuses on the consumer. It mandated that all online gambling ads should carry new taglines. A mother of six was addicted to gambling for 12 years and she lost $350,000. More than 1.3 million people are affected by gambling every year. A study from this year uncovered that ADF veterans were more prone to problem gambling than everyday Australians. Australia is first in the world with spending per capita on gambling. They are losing a lot of money.
