The cost-of-living crisis is exposing online gambling platforms
January 2, 2023
As winter sets in, the cost-of-living squeeze is putting more and more people under financial strain. Our local Citizens Advice are seeing the beginnings of a toxic cycle between growing financial vulnerability and online gambling.

People are gambling to try and fix their financial situation and to cope with the stress, anxiety and isolation of the crisis.
