Baz Ashmawy, the star of 50 Ways to Kill Your Mammy recently presented a very gripping documentary "All Bets are Off".
The show delved into the dark, heartbreaking and complex reality of problem gambling in Ireland. Baz talked exclusively about the stories that shocked him the most, the need for compassion towards those with addiction and calls for more regulation of the gambling industry.
The Irish are the third-largest gamblers in the world and number one for online betting. One in 10 gamblers has a serious problem. Only 5pc of those will ever seek help, while only 1pc will ever receive it, due to a lack of support services.
