I need some advice on how I should approach this situation:
My younger brother just turned 21 in January. He has been going down to the casinos in Atlantic City, NJ. He goes with my uncle, who has a gambling addiction/problem and my uncles 2 kids (23, 21) who in my opinion also have the same problem. I just found out this weeked that my brother has been playing cards down there. He always said he went for the shows, food, and boardwalk but now he told me he plays blackjack and that he won $2,500. My parents don’t know that he has been gambling. I warned him of the addiction that my uncle and cousins have and that he shouldn’t go down there because it could happen to him. He responded that he brings $100 for spending money and he knows when to stop. Like I said my parents don’t know and would be very upset if they found out. He lives at home, rent free and works 40 hours a week, goes to school 3 nights a week and graduates this year. He gives my mom a certain amount of money per week to put in the bank ( he is not responsible with money, it burns holes in his pocket if it’s there to long).
So now to my question, I know he still has the money he won in his possesion how should I approach him about putting it in the bank without my parents knowing where the money came from. And also how to stop him from going down there. I’m just concerned and I’m afriad he may become an addict and gamble what he has away.
