Glad to see the back of a scummy gambling company. 

 

Hopefully see something different that gives Scottish football a boost.

Lets be honest here, the real reason they are pulling out is because the company is making less money now the rule changes have taken place where you can spend a maximum of £2 a spin on the fobt rather than £100 a spin. they have blamed there for closing lots of shops and in turn will be making less money. 

 

its a good pr exercise from them as it looks like they are trying to help problem gamblers from not promoting sports gambling when they know problem gamblers are mostly found on slots machines.

 

all while they send problem gamblers £100's of pounds in free cash bonuses to entice people to spend more and actually call when people dont bet to make sure they are ''ok''

 

sorry for the rant but feel very strongly towards this. if i had my way i would ban any kind of betting.

Bookies don't need shops. On your phone 24/7.

The FOBTs caused an expansion of Betting shops on our high streets.

Without the high stakes and profits made from the 'crack cocain of gambling' there is not enough business to keep so many shops open.

The betting shops are now back to where they were twenty years ago depending on horses, dogs, football and other sports with the gaming machines just a supplement to turnover. 

The big difference now from back then is online betting as you said nobody needs to go into a bookies anymore to place bets.

Feel sorry for the staff though many of my ex colleagues will be out of work through no fault of their own.

I agree. Gambling ruins lives, I don't want my sport associated with it.

Good , alcohol , cigarettes and betting firms / casino’s shouldn’t be allowed to sponsor things in todays day and age. Must be a huge amount of money from betting firms / casino’s going into English football. Be interesting to see if it changes things down there.

Anything else that should be added to your list, or is it just these types of companies? Do you want to ban these companies completely?

Get old man Tunnock on the phone.  Imagine the international appeal of the 'Tunnock Snowball Premier League'.

Most gamblers will just drive to the nearest bookies/pub. There's always a bookies next to a boozers.

There's 4 bookies in my wee toon. Three are about 100 ft apart. Shocking.

An opportunity for BT more like. Lose the tv rights but make a rival have to show your brand and logo frequently is a smart marketing move.

There are hundreds of major companies out there who would love to become involved with Scottish football. 

Now the Scottish Football Association and the League have to clean up the cancer of sectarianism that blights 

our game. We need to encourage fans or potential fans to support their local team instead of whether they are 

orange or green. Buses & cars leaving city’s like Edinburgh, Dundee, Perth ect heading to Old Firm games has 

to be restricted through education and the clubs doing more in schools and the community’s.

Rant over.
