Odds and Ends: “When you Play the Odds, This is how it Ends” Youth Workshop

We follow Charlie, a seventeen-year-old high school student, who learns the hard way that people they know are being adversely affected by gambling. Charlie is affected by the gambling activities of their friend, Zorah, and teacher, Mr. Sal Rantzen. The interactive video explores various forms of gambling, focusing on key points like lost graduation funds, rumors, and the impact on individuals and relationships. Throughout the video, characters have health meters that resemble those in video games. The health meters symbolize the broader impact of gambling harms on an entire community, even when not everyone directly participates in the activity. The aim of the video is to encourage youth to engage in conversations about Charlie’s emotions and experiences.
