Gambling Advertising

Think something needs to be done about gambling adverts on TV and social media.

Also the offer of free bets should be more regulated as this draws people in who may become addicted to gambling like myself.

Would we offer free bottles of vodka to alcoholics?

I agree Steve, I am particularly concerned about "free bonus" bets that require you to stake the "free" bonus multiple times before it can be withdrawn. Some sites require you to stake the "free" bonus up to 99 times! Hardly fair, and should be looked into by the Gambling Commission.
