I’d like to know what the rate would of bets made is following adverts discussing spend limits, mental health around gambling etc. Is. There has been an uptick in betting companies running campaigns like this and it feels like it is to subliminally encourage gambling guises as a helpful infomercial. Is there a way for me to get this information?
