The conversation begins by discussing the catalyst for changing the laws relating to gambling, one of mankind’s oldest activities, to consider how the growth of online gambling has impacted the sports betting industry.

The conversation moves on to discuss anti-gambling campaigns and an increased media and public focus on problem gambling. The panel debated where tougher regulation is needed to tackle gambling-related harms, and highlight the risks of gambling addiction.

Together the panel also discussed the impact of eliminating betting sponsorships from football shirts, and whether the infrastructure of the horse racing industry is sustainable without prize money or TV advertising exposure.
