If he has a clean sheet before this and if all 5 offences were committed around the same time it is possible that a good lawyer may be able to have no conviction recorded, provided he makes full restitution, is remorseful and apologises to the court. The only thing against that is that there are 5 offences.
In light of that I would think slight, but not a reason not to try, a good lawyer and how your boy presents in court and his age are always factors.
Has he stopped gambling? Has he taken steps that the court will accept to eliminate gambling from his life?
If yes on both questions and he can satisfactorily prove this to the court, I would think his chances would be improved considerably. No court is going to go easy on a person who is likely to reoffend.

He has a corporate job now and in 2 years from now, he can get rid of all his debts and make his life so much better, he was finally happy to join corporate but after he left his previous job, the police contacted him and now he can lose everything if he gets convicted,would the judge consider this?
