But this doesn't seem like a guy on a ride to the bottom of a hole (as most posters seem to have assumed), but rather a guy trying to climb out.
I suppose he was trying to make things right (at least temporarily), but that doesn't matter as far as giving him a loan was concerned. And now the bank has returned the items which overdrew his account, so the casino won't let him use his debit card there again. It'll be cash only, which should limit how far in the hole he can go in the future.

While he was trying to make things right, he could have landed himself in hot water. Trying to cover gambling debts tends to draw red flags from certain regulatory agencies...and can sometimes end up in your employment file. I work for a brokerage, and such losses can (and do) attract unwanted attention from your compliance department.

No, that's the thing -- he wasn't trying to "make things right", he was trying to paper over his gambling debts with a desperate loan -- and the overdraft makes it clear just how desperate. That's not even robbing Peter to pay Paul! Rather, it's trying to fill the hole he's in by digging up some more dirt to fill it with -- and that's how you get yourself well and truly buried.
