Abstract:

The gamblers interviewed for this book all had one thing in common - they didn't know what hit them. They thought they were in Casino Heaven and they, the Gods of Gambling. They thought they were invincible and would always win it all back. They thought wrong. They didn't just lose; they got wiped out and destroyed. But they managed to claw themselves out in the most unbelievable ways - adopting sugar mummies, selling their kidneys, even resorting to black magic. But all this only led one way - to hell. For some, it led to untimely death.
