Justyn Rees Larcombe had everything. Successful in the world of re-insurance, he was being fast tracked for further promotion in a global company. He had amassed a large amount of wealth and all the trappings that went with it, including a big house and fast cars. He had a beautiful wife and three sons. And then he lost it all.

Addicted to gambling, Justyn lost three quarters of a million pounds in three years. He spent his wife’s money and even used his corporate credit card to fund his habit. It cost him his job, and then his wife, children, home and reputation. Having barely escaped criminal prosecution, he reached rock bottom and considered suicide.

In one final throw of the dice, Justyn returned to the God of his youth. It turned out to be the safest bet he had ever made – through a miraculous and dramatic healing he stopped gambling overnight.

This is a highly readable and engaging story from a man who had and lost everything only to discover all he ever wanted in the embrace of a loving God. Today Justyn speaks widely about the dangers of gambling. "God has restored much of what I lost and is continuing to do so," he explains. "I am slowly dealing with the consequences of my habit."
