A TV spot for UK-facing bookmakers Coral was prohibited by the country’s Advertising Standards Authority because it’s deemed to link gambling with ‘seduction,’ and therefore contravenes advertising that is gambling in that country.

The TV spot showcased two men in a barber shop who’re reading The Racing Post and discussing whether or not to spot a bet, whenever an attractive young girl enters dressed being a jockey. Pausing only to close one man’s jaw she holds up a sign bearing ‘today’s great offer’ the name of a horse and its odds while one of the men places a bet on the Coral mobile app with her riding crop.

Gibraltar-based Coral has protested its innocence, however, claiming that, while the did that is commercial contain a stylish model, it ‘did not consider that it linked gambling with seduction, sexual success or improved attractiveness’ therefore the character did maybe not ‘flirt with or seduce the men and there is no suggestion that the men would be much more attractive or sexually successful after betting.’

Seduction Fills the Air

Nice decide to try, Coral. We at don’t imagine become specialists in issues of seduction, but we would like to believe that when an attractive girl dressed as a jockey teasingly closed our gaping jaws it would at least be a little bit ‘flirty,’ wouldn’t it wi Read more

Bookmaker Ceases odds that are taking Qatar World Cup Likelihood

With increasing force mounting, Qatar’s likelihood of hosting the 2022 World Cup is in doubt with bookmakers, anyway.

When Qatar won the best to host the 2022 World Cup, the jokes started almost immediately. There were allegations of bribery or other misbehavior, and several wondered exactly how the world’s most massive event that is sporting be held in a tiny country with blistering hot climate in the summer. That in change provided rise to the chance of hosting the tournament within the winter.

Now, with new evidence growing about possible corruption in the bidding that is FIFA, there’s reasonable doubt as to whether Qatar will become hosting the tournament at all.

All this has caused one major bookmaker to not just change the odds on who can host the tournament, but change the nature regarding the bets altogether. The Gala Coral Group was bets that are taking whether maybe not the tournament would ultimately be played in Qatar, with odds dropping from the height of as 5-1 that FIFA would just take that right away from them. Now, all bets on that topic are off literally.

‘we have stopped using bets on whether Qatar will keep the planet Cup once the latest allegations suggest it appears almost certainly now,’ said Coral’s John Hill.

United States Most Likely Replacement

In its spot, the bookmaker is allowing bets on just what country will host the 2022 World Cup should Qatar have the tournament stripped awa Read more

 New Jersey Politicos Attack Federal Anti-Gambling Bill

‘Congress should leave us alone!’- was the response of Senator Lesniak as he denounced an Adelson-backed anti-gambling bill week that is last.

‘ The bottom line: Congress should keep us alone!’ That’s the verdict from New Jersey State Senator Raymond Lesniak (D-Elizabeth) as well as other Garden State legislators, who used hawaii’s annual Chamber of Commerce trip to Washington DC last week as a platform to denounce the Restoration of America’s Wire Act.

Lesniak, along side Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, Senate Majority Leader Lou Greenwald and Senate President Steve Sweeney, called on Congress to reject the bill, that will be supported by Las vegas, nevada Sands chairman Sheldon Adelson, and would effectively outlaw all types of online gambling nationwide (aside from horse racing), perhaps the sale that is online of tickets.

Keep it to the States

‘New Jersey policymakers took the initiative to modernize our video gaming industry through online video gaming,’ said Greenwald.’Yet Congressional action threatens to destroy this innovative and fledgling effort before it has the opportunity to be successful on its own merits. This problem should be kept to the states, whom are best positioned to decide if and how online gaming should work in their communities, not by Washington.’

The bill was introduced final thirty days by Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) and Representative Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), and disp Read more
