A father in China gave his son $1.5 million to have his relationship with his son severed after finding out the son was an online gambler.

Within days, the son lost all of his money through betting over the Internet.

The People Daily reported:

The 36-year-old son, surnamed Lin, went with a friend, Shao, in April 2009 to gamble in Macao, where he saw his friend win 150,000 yuan within half an hour from the original amount of 50,000 yuan.

Lin went back to his family, demanded more money, and appears to have had some type of nervous breakdown.

Lin's friend, surnamed Shao, allegedly helped fuel his gambling addiction and was ultimately arrested after he was shown to be the head of a gambling group which had illegally earned more than 10 million yuan by organizing online gambling.

Online gambling is illegal in China.
