This documentary, part of the A&E Investigative Reports series, explores the dark and depressing world of teenage gambling. With the rise of lotteries, and riverboat or land-based casinos, the percentage of people suffering from gambling addictions also increases. Sadly, these percentages also include underage teens, who cannot legally gamble but somehow manage to get hooked. Narrated by series producer and host Bill Kurtis, this episode features many actual stories about this teen phenomenon, including a group of 15-year-olds who play craps wherever they can. A 17-year-old tells how he missed his graduation ceremony in order to go bet at the local racetrack and another teenager speaks out about how his gambling problem forced him into criminal activity for money. Investigative Reports also talks with psychologists, gambling industry professionals, and parents of addicted teens about this growing trend in today's young adults. ~ Cecilia Cygnar, Rovi
