Oh. My. Effing. God. Will these damned DraftKings (and, to a lesser degree, FanDuel) ads stop already???
I dunno if y’all have noticed or not, but online gambling site DraftKings has been spending a rather kingly sum on advertising. It’s everywhere... static webpage ads, streaming service video ads, both static and video in a variety of apps... it’s maddening.
I know enough people that have had issues with gambling that I’m glad I’ve never gotten into gambling, be it sports or casinos.
But you can’t escape these ads anymore. And there’s apparently zero regulation of them.
Gambling is a serious problem that I’m sure hasn’t gotten better with COVID-related job cutbacks and loss. And this promise of a $100 initial payout with a $1 investment? Bait that hook, why don’cha?
It’s fucking predatory and something needs to be done.
