The Addiction Machine

Format: 1 x 60
Broadcaster(s):  ABC
Available in HD

Slot machines - they’re rigged, they’re addictive, and they’re everywhere.

In a first ever look behind the scenes, this film reveals the highly organised network of mathematicians, musicians and designers all working toward the single vision of ensuring we lose, and keep on loosing. In addition to hearing from neuroscientists, anthropologists and game theoriest who explain the science behind addiction, we meet those victims who have fallen prey to what they describe as an 'unlawful hypnotism'.

And at the end of this trail of destruction caused by gambling lies the goverment. Too reliant on revenue to fill budget holes; the government have become the greatest addicts of all.
