Answer by pdq
Gambling leads to crime mainly because when someone becomes addicted, they will do anything in order to get more money with which to gamble. Some will resort to theft.

Illegal to gamble online? No. In most countries, including most states in the USA, it is legal.

Illegal for kids to pretend to be adults? Absolutely!

Any type of gambling can lead to crime. Like I said, get someone who is addicted and desperate, and he will steal things and pawn them for betting money.
