Unfortunately, as with any addiction, he has to chose to stop. You can give him the info on where to find a Gambler's Anonymous meeting but you can't make him go.

I did Maam but it didn't work.

While that's unfortunate, no one can actually make someone change. If he's not interested in making that change he won't change.

Unfortunately, he has to
want to quit, but if he knows he has a problem but still feels compelled to
gamble there is medication that can help reduce the craving to gamble, and when
gambling , a gambler would spend much less.

This is his choice. You will do nothing until he wants to stop himself.  I know what I am talking about. I am a sport better and I used to spent a lot of money in vain. Now I bet once per week with and control my desire. He should choose, not you

You are a leech. Telling a child who is looking for help with a parent and you suggest a way to gamble? Disgusting. You should be ashamed of yourself. Same goes for Anna K, who did the same thing.
