Gambling addiction affects more than just the addict. It affects the family and society. An addict can use up all the financial resources of himself and those around him in chase of the highs of winning. In the Asia Pacific region, there is an increased risk of problem gambling compared to the other parts of the world. This is due to the cultural influences in Asia, as gambling is seen as a social activity. This leads to more exposure to pathological gambling.
Fortune, luck and superstitions also play a huge part in Asian culture. Asians tend to attribute their fortune to a part of their identity. As such, it is common to have gamblers get completely sucked into the game they are playing, creating pathological gamblers.
