'They offered me cash bonuses to keep gambling'

In total, Amanda lost £633,000 from gambling. She made her last bet on the day she was made bankrupt.

Whenever she lost a lot of money online, she was offered free cash bonuses to continue gambling.

"It's horrific what I've done to myself," she says. "My children looked up to me and now I have blown their inheritance."

If you or someone you know has a gambling problem you can visit BBC Action Line.
