Bugs fly around Kylie. When one lands on her she whacks it.
She's been at the club all day, gambling on the pokies, the TAB and the odd bit of KENO...oh, and her phone.
Kylie pulls out her phone and places a bet.
She's had a steady stream of drinks and hasn't eaten all day. She's been to the ATM a few times, is betting huge amounts, and is saving different pokie machines to play.
Kylie goes over to a gaming machines occupied by another patron and scares him away.
Kylie is showing a number of different signs of being a problem gambler. She's not happy, and needs to talk to someone.
