Arnie today owns a help line for those seeking an end to their addiction to gambling. He thinks online gambling is the newest form of crack cocaine, as it affects people across racial, social and economic lines. But it wasn’t long ago that Arnie himself was a slave to his need to make bets. His first bit of “action” was, like many kids on city streets, flipping baseball cards. But in his teens he took his first trip to a racetrack, where he turned a few nickles into a big jackpot. From then on, he was sure he’d become a millionaire quickly.
