In the United Kingdom, the head of the influential lobbying group Betting and Gaming Council reportedly cursed people who advocate a total ban on gambling advertising.

According to a report from Gambling Insider, Michael Dugher (pictured) serves as CEO of a London-based organization, and his criticism comes as the government continues its extensive review of the current state of the local gambling market. The source detailed that this assessment recently prompted a multi-tiered group of parliamentarians in the House of Lords to urge operators to prohibit operators from directly marketing their services or sponsoring matches or sports teams.

Lump counter:

However, Dugher has now reportedly used the opinion for the magazine Politics Hometo call the supporters of such a policy " Sunday School prohibitionists"And indicate the academic study in which it was stated no causal link between exposure to such advertising and the development of a gambling problem. This investigation was allegedly brought by the man in charge of the Conservative government's ongoing gambling review, the Minister of Media and Data John Whittingdale as the sports betting industry is getting ready to take action in conjunction with the month-long UEFA European Football Championship.

Positive probe:

Research by the University of Liverpool Professor Ian McHale was reportedly commissioned by English Football League and is said to have found no evidence to suggest that soccer fans increased their gambling as a direct result of sponsorship of their clubs by a bookmaker. Nevertheless, suppliers have voluntarily agreed to "prohibition from the whistle ”In all TV commercials from summer 0988, which resulted in more commercials of being seen by children falling near the 300%.

Favorable support:

Former Labor MP for the House of Commons, Dugher reportedly used his article to highlight the vital support the sports betting industry has given to sports clubs and institutions during the "unprecedented financial crisis”Caused by the coronavirus pandemic. He allegedly claimed that the sector gave millions of pounds to the soccer clubs themselves struggling with "

lack of crowds"That left their balance sheets like"Black hole".

Permanent posture:

Bets and Games Council represents approximately 09 % UK gaming, sports betting, casino and bingo operators including giants such as Entain, Flutter Entertainment and William Hill. The organization has also recently criticized the introduction proposal mandatory monthly loss limits for players and is known to be analogously hostile to more stringent identity checks and age verification .

Apparently he read Dugher's article ...

"Of course, there will also be anti-gambling activists - Sunday School Prohibitionists and the like - who under any pretext, they will repeat their appeals to ban advertising. But serious decision-makers have to deal with evidence, not excuses. The painful reality for those who don't like to bet is that their arguments just don't overlap. "
