Whats next letting pedos off providing they get wed when she turns 18.

Damn, that's gonna be hard he might end up with more debts trying to win. ive heard a similar story, a drunk guy used a credit card from his company to play. his money there was just 2000EUR. played some casino, lost and deposited some 20000EUR more and lost it all in 30minutes.
