The presenters making constant jokes about the topic is pretty disgusting tbf
Nobody is forced to gamble. Stop babying grown adults. They know very well what they’re doing
O you who believe! Intoxicants (all kinds of alcoholic drinks), gambling, Al-Ansab, and Al-Azlam (arrows for seeking luck or decision) are an abomination of Shaitan's (Satan) handiwork. So avoid (strictly all) that (abomination) in order that you may be successful.
Shaitan (Satan) wants only to excite enmity and hatred between you with intoxicants (alcoholic drinks) and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of Allah and from As-Salat (the prayer). So, will you not then abstain?
And obey Allah and the Messenger (Muhammad SAW), and beware (of even coming near to drinking or gambling or Al-Ansab, or Al-Azlam, etc.) and fear Allah. Then if you turn away, you should know that it is Our Messenger's duty to convey (the Message) in the clearest way.
Those who believe and do righteous good deeds, there is no sin on them for what they ate (in the past), if they fear Allah (by keeping away from His forbidden things), and believe and do righteous good deeds, and again fear Allah and believe, and once again fear Allah and do good deeds with Ihsan (perfection). And Allah loves the good-doers.
I lost £30k in 6 weeks online. Just couldn't stop thinking about it.
This tragedy was avoidable. Gambling pondscum companies must be recognised as pariahs like Tobaco Cancer companies. Ban the ads now. A public inquiry into the deliberate targetting of kids.
Stop Laughing, even “on the inside” Suicide is NOT funny on any level ffs
I'd say the odds were 25 to 1 that this isn't true.
There is no such thing as responsible gambling.
Ban gambling advertising, they done it with cigarettes
Maybe there shouldn't be adds everywhere for it. How are there no restrictions.
Surprise surprise, pretty sure this was warned before they further legalised gambling.
Shows the warnings to stop and limit spending don’t work with addicts
Gambling isn't mere addiction. There's an ego angle – hence the football shirts.
