ShadowBet – A New Online Casino In Town

One question that tickles the minds of nongamblers or those people who do not go to casinos is why people are willing to gamble on their hard-earned money? Though the answer to this may be subjective depending upon the thoughts and personality of every individual, one general thing that is common to every gambler on this earth is that they do it for relaxation. Going to casinos and playing their favorite games with full engagement takes their mind off from daily life adversities and stressors and for the time being, they experience being in the here and now. This happens because of the highly charged and competitive atmosphere as no one wants to lose their money, therefore, they take the games so seriously, that nongambling related thoughts disappear into thin air hence taking away the str...

FA urged to ‘reconsider’ deal with betting website

The British government has urged the Football Association to “reconsider” its relationship with bookmaker Bet365 as concerns grow over the link between problem gambling and mental health issues. The gambling website streamed 23 third-round FA Cup games at the weekend as part of a deal signed with the FA in January 2017. The matches were only available to watch if the customer had placed a bet or put £5 ($6.50) in an account in the 24 hours before kick-off. All third-round matches were delayed by one minute to publicise the FA’s “Heads Up” mental health campaign, backed by FA president Prince William. The FA agreed a media rights deal with IMG, a sports management company, in early 2017, which permits IMG to sell the rights to show live footage or clips of FA Cup matches to ...

Father Arrested for Selling his Baby Daughter Online to Pay Off Gambling Debts

A father has been arrested for selling his 1-year-old daughter online for £6,800 to pay off his gambling debts. The heartless father, named only as Jiang, sold the one-year-old to a couple after racking up debts of more than 60,000 Yuan (£6,798), according to reports in China. Jiang lied to his wife that his daughter needed to stay with his mother. He then flew the child more than 1,150 miles away from their home in Guiyang, Guizhou province, last November. But his wife, named Wang, grew concerned after he didn't return after three months and repeatedly postponed their return. In February, she checked her husband's phone and found chilling conversations between him and her daughter's buyers.

Barton urges FA to change ‘hard line’ betting rules

Former Manchester City midfielder Joey Barton has said the Football Association should alter their "zero-tolerance" approach to gambling in football after Liverpool forward Daniel Sturridge was charged with alleged breaches of betting rules. England international Sturridge has been charged with incidents dating back to the period of January 2018 and has until Tuesday to respond. Barton, who himself served a 13-month ban for betting offences while he was playing for Burnley, believes gambling is ingrained in English football culture and punishing players is just the "tip of the iceberg". "They have to revise their approach," Barton, currently managing third-tier side Fleetwood Town, told Sky Sports. "There's a lot of people who have vested interest in promoting and advertising g...

Outrage as 13-year-old Thai boxer Dies in Ring

There has been public outrage in Thailand after a 13-year-old Thai boxer died during a charity bout, reviving calls for a ban on fights between children in the brutal Muay Thai martial art. Thai boxing is hugely popular in the country and many fighters enter the sport at a young age in search of fame and fortune. But the involvement of kids who sometimes start under 10 years of age in bouts that use kicks and elbows to the head — often without headguards — has stirred frequent criticism. More so as the young fighters are often family breadwinners from poor families and bouts are subject to frenzied ringside gambling.

How Heavy Use Of Social Media Could Lead To Mental Illness

Heavy consumption of social media could lead to mental illness, researchers have said. Roughly a quarter of British adults have been diagnosed at some point with a psychiatric disorder, costing the economy an estimated 4.5% of GDP per year. Such illnesses have many causes, but a growing body of research demonstrates that in young people they are linked with heavy consumption of social media. According to a survey in 2017 by the Royal Society for Public Health, Britons aged 14-24 believe that Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter have detrimental effects on their wellbeing. On average, they reported that these social networks gave them extra scope for self-expression and community-building. But they also said that the platforms exacerbated anxiety and depression, deprived...

FA ‘Can’t Solve’ English Football’s Gambling Problem – Barton

Joey Barton has criticised the Football Association (FA) for failing to tackle the problem of gambling in football in an interview with the Sunday Times. Barton was given an 18-month ban in April after admitting breaking FA rules by placing bets on 1,260 football matches, and will be 36 years old by the time he is eligible to return, something he says is now unlikely. The midfielder, who has been released by Burnley following his ban, says the FA are not equipped to handle the widespread problems that gambling represents for professional footballers or the rehabilitation that many need to reform. “They’ve given me such a harsh sentence because they want to maintain to the world, to the people who buy TV rights, that this is a very high-integrity game here,” he said. “People who wo...
