The idea of gambling as money making tool for govt is also taking hold in the UK, where the govt has decided to create a number of supercasinos throughout the country (and this is a govt that keeps talking about social responsibility).

I'm not sure that middle class will be the ones to be badly affected though. Studies suggest that a significant number of heavy gamblers come from much lower down the social scale. Gambling to them becomes a potential way out of a situation, and rather than think about the money they are throwing money (and can't afford to), they think in terms of the money they may win.

When it comes down to it though, people don't have to gamble, they chose to gamble.
