I knew who the op was just from the thread title....grin but I agree, the milk onion bingo ads on tv are truly awful.

MincePiesAndBaileys Sun 30-Dec-12 22:13:54

Bloody hell it's catching, I meant million ads, not milk onion ads blush

Thinking about it I cannot stand that cheeky one.

I want to give that woman a slap and tell her to grow up ffs

Maybe I'm being naive, but I don't think they are being consciously targeted at children, just at the sort of women who like pink a lot.

vert chlidish imagery

I get the gist of your post though.

Bingo is still gambling and people can get addicted, it's just not taken as seriously.

My mums best friend had a serious gambling addiction for years, people only started taking it seriously when it got so bad that her kids didn't even have school lunch money.

I always thought it wouldn't have gotten so far if it had of been her husband playing poker or betting on horses, but because it was Bingo and she went with her mother it was fine.

What??

AllYoursJingleBellbooshka Sun 30-Dec-12 22:25:50

Actually, I think I have missed the point entirely.

Ignore moi.

ChaosTrulyReigns Sun 30-Dec-12 22:31:08

Binyo is seen as not relly gambling. but is as serious adn adfitive as itehr gambing sadly

ThreeBoostsOneGalaxy Sun 30-Dec-12 22:33:26

Babar.

I hate the one where all the lovely people from the Bingo site are hanging round on a beach, because obviously playing bingo online gets you have lots of friends.

I imagine lonely people playing and hoping they will find some companionship.

nickelbabylyinginamanger Sun 30-Dec-12 22:35:18

it is proper gambling yes.
the advert that make it look like a fun childish pursuit are bad yes.

have you noticed how many gambling adverts there are right now?
the one u hate most is the one where the couple go gambling in their front room because life is too boring without gambling.

shesariver Sun 30-Dec-12 22:36:35

Ah thanks threeboosts grin
