Stick with ban

I am strongly against the legalisation of soccer gambling.


I think it can only be harmful to society in Hong Kong.


In a league table of the number of people who gamble in any country, Hong Kong is second.


People with gambling problems spend all the money they earn on horse racing. Then, when they have spent all that, they go to loansharks for more money. If betting on football is allowed, this will make the gambling problem in the SAR even worse than it already is. The betting ban should stay in force.
