The online gambling industry has become one of the fastest moving and most profitable industries in the UK and is still rising rapidly.
Advertisement has been vital for the industry’s growth with many ads on radio and tv, websites and social media. Recently in the UK, betting and gaming brands spent a reported £1.1 Billion on online gambling advertising. It is common for betting companies to sponsor sports teams, particularly football teams.
