Interesting to see BetVictor getting negative press in a 'proper' paper - is all publicity good publicity?

By the way, I was so intrigued by that 450k figure that I went and googled the original Gambling Commission paper. While we'd all agree that kids gambling isn't a good thing, that's (thankfully) a pretty misleading overall figure: "the most popular form of gambling continue to be placing a private bet with friends". It also includes things like playing 2p machines in the arcades. Also intriguing to note that the level of 'gambling' in 11-16 year olds has remained constant over time, so these betting adverts aren't yet having any proven effect on young people themselves. [Clearly they're having an effect on those over 16 or they wouldn't spend so much money advertising].
