Not only does gambling affect a person's bank account, but it also negatively affects a person's whole lifestyle. Gambling can rule someones life and can negatively affect retirement, one's job, and a person's family (Rotter).
It is clear there is a need for change in South Carolina in regards to gambling. There need to be more regulations placed on video gambling and an increase in the states initiative to reduce the number of people addicted to gambling.
