Each week, Against the odds will monitor the amount of times gambling, in a variety of settings, enters my life. This I hope will shine a light on the industry’s current reach.
The football fixtures have meant that I am seeing quite a few adverts as my husband watches the kids with the games on in the background. Perhaps the biggest onslaught was a William Hill advert on a new, innovative way to bet against friends (lovely thought) straight into a title saying ‘this programme is sponsored by Bet365’. There were also quite a few new Bingo adverts I noticed this week.
It really is an assault of gambling adverts.
