Are drilling jobs a great way to get loads of money and spend nothing?

Hello, My boyfriend has a gambling addiction and is now 27 and is wanting to go to work on a camp out west in Canada as he says this is the best way to get loads of money behind people and that this way he won't be open to casinos etc. I heard rumours that a lot of guys lose money gambling etc on these camps too...but I am just not sure at all what to believe. I am all for him turning his life around, but is it a sure way for him to do so?
