In Queens, police busted a 41-year-old woman after the lure of the slots was just too tempting.

The mom is accused of ditching her 9-year-old son for an hour while she gambled.  She apparently left him in the gift shop of the Resorts World Casino in Jamaica and a tipster alerted officers.

The boy is fine and has been placed with relatives. Police are still questioning the mom and she is facing charges.
