428. At the even worse, a selfish gambler can neglect his financial duties towards his family and eventually gambling can become a drug which destroys life.
at the even worse意为“更糟糕的是……”。在论证中用此句式引出“递进”的逻辑论证，程度上实现进一步深化，将worse改为better可以表达进一步向“好”的方面转变。表示“经济上的责任”一般可以用financial duties。与本句类似的例句如下：

To make things worse, threats can turn into deeds.
The more terrible thing is that I totally forget that today is my mother's birthday.
