A Perthshire woman lost £2,020 she had stolen from her mother gambling at an online casino, a court was told.
Nicole Clark used her mother Avril Stewart's bank details to set up online accounts.
The 30-year-old, from Woodside, admitted stealing the money between 8 August and 26 August last year.
Depute fiscal Robbie Brown told Perth Sheriff Court that the accused's mother had not recouped any of the stolen money.
Sheriff William Wood deferred sentence for the preparation of social work reports.
