Casino gambling is supposed to bring economic benefits to Ohio, but like on the casino floor itself, not everyone will win. An increase in gambling addiction accompanies casino developments. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll be joined by Plain Dealer Science Writer John Mangels and others to talk about how computerized slot machines can be mesmerizing and what measures are in place to deal with those who can't stop playing -- and losing. Join us, Thursday at 9:00 a.m. on 90.3.


Dr. Heather Chapman, director, gambling treatment program, Brecksville VA Medical Center
Jennifer Clegg, Gambling Program Supervisor, Recovery Resources
John Mangels, reporter, The Plain Dealer
