@NewUser731 said in Gambling receiving bad media attention.:
Is anyone concerned by the wave of negative publicity the gambling industry at the moment?
From FOBT machines to advertising in football gambling seems to be taking a bit of a pasting.
While I obviously appreciate FI is nothing like FOBT machines and is different to all other betting companies you presume any legislation will tarnish all betting companies with the same brush.
One thing that FI needs to grow is exposure so any potential ban on advertising (Nottingham forest shirt sponsor for example) isn't ideal.
Having listened to the fig's podcast the idea of peer to peer advertising and therefore more targeted referral incentives could become more and more relevant.
Anybody else had any thoughts on this at all?
When I see gambling panned on the news and MPs saying football relies too much on gambling money, it's a worry. If you're going to gamble, FI is the most responsible in that your bet is up to 3 years. You have a great chance of getting your money back.
