They sure are putting a lot of money into advertising here. You can't go anywhere or do anything without being inundated with gambling ads. If they're spending that much, they MUST be making a lot.

I bet they do slim😉

Here is the same, the gambling ads are everywhere, also watching a sport event on telly could become a quite annoying experience because of that.
