Thee ubiquitous nature of gambling in Singapore is typical of most Asian societies, where cultural dominance is placed on the concepts of luck and fortune. There is no denying the presence of gambling, or its place in our everyday lives: the sound of shuffed mahjong tiles are an almost-iconic accent along the corridors of HDB flats. Down the walkways of neighbourhood shopping districts, the snaking queues of the yearly Toto Hongbao draw. The shouts of punters that echo across the terraces of the Singapore Turf Club. Better is a two-part visual essay about the people who gamble in Singapore and the struggle of a family forced to recover from gambling addiction.
