September 01 2017

Arguably the worst week ever; just read:

  • High street betting shops must clean up their act
  • Bookmakers are the 21st century tobacco companies
  • Bookies advertising to children is out of control
  • Bookies conning punters yet again
  • Do online bookmakers have any inclination to stop ‘problem gambling’?
  • 8 million fine for online bookie; about time
  • More fines to come for bookies if change is slow
  • Bookies are their own worst enemy

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.  From memory there’s been about 4-5 incidents this week.
