    Duration/Length/Size30 mins
    DescriptionPeople who play the pokies could be familiar with ‘the zone’—a state of mind you get into when you've been at the machine for maybe a little too long. The gambling environment can also have an affect—and once you're in that zone, the world outside hardly seems to exist. We hear from a former gambling addict; a scientist; and an anthropologist who hung out in the casinos of Las Vegas.
