I'd give it ten years until gambling ads are banned outright or massively clamped down on. It's an immensely manipulative and downright evil industry in many ways and so many people are addicted.

"oi oi I did a cheeky little acca yesterday, won £200" *fails to mention previous twenty losses  equaling £400.

On UK tv it's illegal to show someone drinking alcohol alone as it encourages bad habits whereas showing someone sitting at work, on a train or in pub alone gambling on their phone isn't considered a problem!

It surprises me how many so called celebs put their faces. and voices behind this crap too. But I suppose them and the bookies are the only real winners.

Not quite true - you can't show gambling in the workplace.

Just as well that Athletico Mince have changed sponsorship from Bet Brazil to beer and shaving promos.

Many channels I watch have been heavily promoting a shaving brand, I forget the name, but they must be Quid's IN!

Those casino style ads for online casino games where suave guy in shades surrounded by women gambles in slow motion. Cut to reality a sad man in his pants in a squalid bedsit spending his dole money on online poker and crying. He's crying cos his kids don't want to see him again and nobody will employ him. The FUN never stops.
There's a gambling site called BetDSI, which is an anagram of bedsit.

The 'lady' on Pink Casino (that's an euphemism in the making) and the fucking Ojo lama get on my thruppenies.

I got an email from pink casino- 'Ray Travez- could YOU win £1 million from a free spin?!'

I think the answer to that question is 'no'.

A warning message attached to gambling adverts does little or nothing to reduce the amount that people bet, according to research.

Academics at the University of Warwick measured the effect of the industry’s responsible gambling slogan: “When the fun stops, stop” and found it did not show any significant effect on gambling behaviour.

They also pointed to the fact that the word fun is printed in much larger font than any other word in the message, which is meant to promote more responsible gambling.

Kris Akabusi (although it looks like someone's stretched the skin of a balloon over the clean skull of Asmodeus)

Not surprised by the banter lads and shouty blokes but Akabusi is a committed Christian (think he did a few Songs of Praises even), don't know how shilling gambling misery sits with that.

"When the FUN stops, stop" is not far off saying "When you aren't thirsty anymore, stop drinking."

In Australia there is some law or something, that states they have to put a disclaimer at the end of the ad. So the ads go like this:

Shouty man: GAMBLE GAMBLE GAMBLE GAMBLE GAMBLE GAMBLE GAMBLE GAMBLE GAMBLE GAMBLE.

Quiet man: Gamble responsibly.

I'm glad Athletico Mince are not doing gambling ads anymore, I know Bob has a flutter now and then but it felt off to have those ads on there.
