September 22 2017

Another pretty standard week; regulation not working & children being bombarded with advertising.

  • Australia makes bookies pay their taxes and reduce harm
  • Lord Sugar campaigns for ban on gambling adverts when children are watching
  • Bookmakers should welcome & embrace tougher regulation
  • Bookmakers’ shops are most prevalent in poorer areas
  • Bookies go down tobacco line to avoid proper regulation
  • PaddyPower apologises for shocking behaviour
  • Football needs to kick bookies out
  • Gambling needs new curbs in the UK

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.
