Two Youtubers have been fined in the UK for gambling offences

Two UK-based Youtubers have been fined for gambling offences after running an illegal gambling website that used FIFA coins as currency and advertising the website to minors.



Read more on Nepenthes being fined over $100,000 for gambling offences.

Good, I hope more countries follow suit especially against people who advertise it to minors.

And their website now just shows "This page is not available in your country." what a surprise

So it's ok to create coins out of 'nothing' and sell them to kids, but not to gamble with them? What a ed up world we like in.

Should ban him from YT too while they are at it. That'll really sting.

We live in a world where companies make drugs not to cure the sick but to generate profits, where providing a medicine to treat the symptoms of chronic illness rather than the source for a permanent fix.

We live in a world where our leaders breed conflict/division, gerrymander voting boundaries and create systems where re-election prospects can't be higher, but public approval can't get much lower.

We live in a world where problems of housing and famine are fixable, but society is not willing to give to those on the bottom and instead joys itself in hoarding riches and increasing the power of the 1%.

This world has never had its priorities straight, it is indeed "f'd up" as you said. TBH advertising gambling to minors should be punishable by more than just a fine.

it's unregulated and enough people have trouble with gambling as it is so I'm all for fining them.

It would be nice if you could opt out of certain types of ads. I'm sick of William hill or sportsbet (both drive me nuts and I don't gamble anyways aside from the odd lotto ticket) I know they use profiling to target ads but it would be great if you could just say I don't want to see any of these types of ads. Yeah I get that advertising is what makes youtube money but surely it's not that hard to have categories.

I said to my wife the other night..

"Man. If aliens came down and landed in the UK and watched an hour of TV they would think we were a nation of gamblers and alcoholics !".

Especially after 9pm, it's just relentless !
