Little flutter anyone ?

What on earth is going on in this world, instead of going shopping you can now just gamble your shopping money and hope you get a few more frozen nuggets !!

What's next, Asda Blackjack, Sainsburys Poker, or maybe Tesco with Roulette

I give up, I really do despair :(

Oh dear, that is terrible. You just know who it is aimed at, spend more on gambling - have less to spend on essentials - spend it in our shop coz you won't be able to shop anywhere else except Iceland & Poundland, innit.
I am trying to do battle with Iceland just now over the lack of stock in their shop on Lincoln High Street, several emails later and nobody has bothered to reply. Shameful from a company who got a load of free advertising last year, paid for by you poor sods who pay the BBC TV Tax.
Ouch !

Well put Odds, despairing indeed. Every night on television there is the temptation of online bingo. Many of the most popular programmes are even sponsored by bingo companies and it is easy to see who they are targeting. It's frightening.

Blow away the dreams that break your heart
Blow away the lies that leave you nothing but lost and brokenhearted
