    "gambling messages adopted by major casinos and betting companies put the onus on the individual.

    "No responsibility is expected of the industry," he said.

    "'Gamble responsibly' is like saying 'use heroin responsibly'. "

    thanks @AGHS this is a really good read. I hope everyone has a read through this and i you want to be able to push for reform, contacting your local member and or state gambling legislator is a good first step. The more pressure placed on governments to change the more likely we will be to actually see it.
