  1. Before the government took over the OTB and lotteries in New York City, mobs and other criminals elements in the city from Harlem to Little Italy in Lower Manhattan, ran the numbers, horse race, and sports betting. Police and a few city officials get a cut from the illegal gamblings. To stop children from gambling in Kenya – anywhere else for that matter, the government cannot do it alone. It starts at home and it's called "home teaching." And every adult in the community has the responsibility of teaching the children or say something when they see kids gambling. If you really believe children are the future of your community, society, your beloved country then does your part.

  2. ya think they'd send their best players to American schools to stack the deck for MARCH MADNESS!!!!

  3. No Kenya has by sure no gambling problem. Gambling means, that somebody really loves the slot machine and devotes his entire life to this technology. He is interested in the history of betting, likes to maximize his own profit and thinks about machines which can play by it's own. This is a real gambling addiction.

  4. The saddest thing is………………

    Half those teams arent even in the english premier

  5. Damn I remembered hanging at these Chinese slot machine spots when I was a kid. Back in the 90s these machines were everywhere in Vietnam, probably imported straight from China after the trend in China passed. It's a loophole in the government laws so the era of these machines did not lasted long, they just shifted between countries. Adults are into big money gambling, they're not interested in these type of machines, owners wouldn't put them in pubs, the only customers are little kids. There's really no solution for this, you just have to wait til the era passed. Either the government see this as a serious problem and throw some laws at it or if the country advanced far enough that kids have better things to do other than hanging at these machines spots.

  7. I'm just waiting for someone in the comments to blame the USA for this kids gambling addiction

  8. From a game hit marker to a flashing light on a one armed bandit. Dopamine triggers are a powerful thing.
