LETTER: gambling ads tell only half the truth

THESE TV gambling ads are really something.

The only side of gambling they show is "winning"; they never show those poor saps who lose their money every day.

They even make it easy by letting you place bets from your mobile ap. TAB tell us that it's "about more than just winning".

Of course it is; it's about losing.

But what I find most touching is the gambling agency that is so grateful to all those people who have given their money to them, they've included at the end of their ad, the contact number for Gamblers Anonymous.

Now how considerate is that?
