Another pretty standard week; online addiction and nothing being done, staff badly trained, UK gambling policies are outdated;

  • No words for this disgusting behaviour
  • Gambling advertising needs greater regulation
  • A need to rethink the UK’s gambling policies
  • Ex betting shop employee ‘spills the beans’ on gambling machines
  • Bookies now ‘insider trading’ in all markets; regulator does nothing
  • Bookies not doing enough for online addiction
  • ‘Responsible gambling’ message is a con
  • Staff aren’t trained to recognise problem gambling signs

The following are all the links to the media coverage proving we’re not making it up.

ps:  Does NOT include all the media coverage of violence and robberies in betting shops.
