You don't need to pay tax to visit a GP. You just need to be registered with the NHS. In fact in some places you can see the nurse no questions asked even if you're not registered. Gambling income isn't taxed. This person is still contributing to economy, he still buys food, pays rent, w/e, he just doesn't pay income tax as he has no taxable income. It's sort of like winning the lottery except lots of little wins.
