02nd December, 2011 at 00:47:29
Critics point out that whilst casino operators face tighter controls, Singapore Pools is advertising aggressively
Recent attempts by the Singapore government to limit the impact of gambling on locals by imposing stricter controls on land casino advertising and marketing have come in for criticism from industry veterans, who claim that the tighter controls are not being fairly applied.
They point to the aggressive marketing of the Singapore Pools, which is not subject to official approval of its marketing initiatives and has been advertising extensively in the local media.
"If the authorities are serious about curbing the local gambling problem, they should be fair about these regulations and apply them to Singapore Pools," said one observer.
