Child Casino Shock

The Issue
Children as young as eight have been spotted gambling in some of Erisianna's seedier casinos.

The Debate
1. Social activist Pip Jones is outraged. "Gambling needs to be outlawed immediately. It's no wonder children are becoming sucked into the vice, with adults setting such a poor example. Gambling is a stain on Erisianna's international reputation and it must be stopped!"


2. However, Crown Casino chairperson Miranda Steele says, "What's wrong with children gambling? It prepares them for the realities of life, teaching them that success or failure is not due to hard work or intelligence, but the roll of the dice. Besides, if kids weren't gambling, they'd be spraypainting trains."
