Another pretty standard week; bookies affiliates are in trouble, football is addicted to gambling and the gambling industry’s image is in tatters:

  • Bookmakers use affiliates who provide dodgy tips
  • Bookmakers target the vulnerable
  • Bookmakers bearing gifts to MPs; surely not
  • Paddy Power takes to blasphemy to promote their product
  • A poor way to run a democracy
  • Football is addicted to gambling
  • A profitable bookie ruined by bad practices: In red
  • Gambling industry feasts on the poor and vulnerable
  • Tipsters recommending Bet365 are up to no good
  • Football needs to clean up its act ; gambling adverts seen by kids
  • The gambling industry’s reputation is in tatters says 888 CEO

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, so back to regular levels.
