We love to gamble. It’s estimated that more than 80 percent of American adults gamble each year, that may include everything from playing a slot machine at a casino or buying a lottery ticket at a local 7-11.

Recent research has found that between 2.5 and 3 million adults in America suffer from compulsive gambling, an unstoppable need to gamble regardless of the personal and financial toll.
