Also, there is the fact that for those who are of age who wish to learn, the best time to go is during the day hours while at sea, when the casinos are relatively slow, compared to how they will be during the evening hours. The downside is even when underage gamblers get away with it, and I am by no means condoning it, there winds up being problems for the rest of us if they win. Because they would lose money on illegal gamblers, a casino may decide to change the odds further in the house's favor to compensate. Another issue with underage gambling is they do not know when to stop because they are too young to have discipline, and this can lead to a gambling addiction, and there is a good chance this kid's father is a gambling addict teaching his son basic strategy. A sure sign that someone has spent too much time in a casino to begin with.
