All bets are off: why bookmakers aren’t playing fair | Society | The Guardian
Win too much at the races and you could find your bookmaker closing your account. An anonymous punter reveals why the odds are now firmly in favour of the big online firms [// they probably have internal (industry wide) blacklists] [...] “The large bookmakers increasingly employ mathematicians and risk managers, rather than those knowledgeable about sport, to ensure that they maximise profits [ the long-tail ] – and have no chance of losing money,” said one senior industry source.

Brain damage and addictive behavior: a neuropsychological and electroencephalogram investigation with pathologic gamblers.
CONCLUSIONS: This study shows that the "healthy" gamblers are indeed brain-damaged. Compared with a matched control population, pathologic gamblers evidenced more brain injuries, more fronto-temporo-limbic neuropsychological dysfunctions and more EEG abnormalities. The authors thus conjecture that addictive gambling may be a consequence of brain damage, especially of the frontolimbic systems, a finding that may well have medicolegal consequences.
