A woman in Pratapgarh, Uttar Pradesh, developed a Ludo addiction that turned sour after she gambled against herself since she had no money to risk and lost to her landlord. Renu, the wife, used to gamble with the money her husband transferred from Jaipur, Rajasthan, where he had a job.

The lady placed herself at risk when she ran out of money one day while they were both playing the game and putting wagers.
