Speaking of addictions,I remember I said earlier that betting is not the real problem but self control,now this is a clearer view to it,I am very sure that if not half then one third of us commenting on this topic are addicted to our phones,so if you paint the object of addiction as the problem and the victim gets over it he or she will still get another addiction,so Op strife to gain self control and become assertive,very important

As a staff in a betting shop, I pity people who gamble alot. But I have friends who set limit to what they play

I always advice gambler to play live match which you will go out and watch the match and mingle with people watching match, that way they focus more on watching football than playing virtual.

I have a customer that opens with us and close with us, he eats breakfast lunch and dinner here

You can't stop gambling once so, my advice is try live match go back to school, focus, instead of wasting time at gambling shop, stay at home and monitor your game through soccer24 or flashscore

P. S- I play live match once or twice in a month, even tho I play for customers I don't even think of playing for myself, cos I don't want to be useless like them

No harm in opening an online account and playing it once in a while, with time You'll find it as fun and something you can do without.

I hope this helps a little.

THANKS.

https://lslb.lg.gov.ng/lottery-law/

that is the lagos state lottery law

it does nothing to prevent issues like the OP's story

http://www.tribuneonlineng.com/60551/

The reality is as crushing as scary. The new fad among teenagers in Lagos is that they take to gambling at a tender age. The situation compels SHOLA ADEKOLA, AKIN ADEWAKUN, LEKAN OLABULO, Ayomide Owonibi Odekanyin, NAZA OKOLI and NEWTON RAY-UKWUOMA to do an indepth story to save this younger generation almost irretrievably lost to the new craze in Lagos; gambling.



Francis, (surname witheld) a 15-year-old Senior Secondary School (SSS2) student of a government secondary school at Gowon Estate in Egbeda, Akowonjo should be any mother’s hope. But he is now a complete nightmare to a distraught mother who had no choice than tell her story for the world to hear, learn and possibly help her. Her “future” is gradually being ruined as the boy who should take care of her at her twilight, has been taken over by a new craze in Lagos; underage gambling. Francis’s mum (names withheld) can no longer keep mum or turn a blind eye as the social menace sucks in kids like Francis and gradually seduces them to addiction point.

Everyone agrees that times change. In fact, change is considered the only permanent thing in life. But nearly everyone desires a change for the better. While the unfolding generational change is now almost acceptable to all, there are societal issues like gambling, changing with time that should worry homes and families. While it is likely a national problem, it is almost of epidemic proportion in Lagos.

There was a time that adults hid to gamble in whatever form. Then, it was a thing of shame for such gamblers and even their families, to indulge in what was then considered as pastime of low-lives.

https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Gambling_Commission

The Gambling Act 2005 (2005 c 19) is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It mainly applies to England and Wales, and to Scotland, and is designed to control all forms of gambling. It transfers authority for licensing gambling from the magistrates' courts to local authorities (specifically unitary authorities, and the councils of metropolitan borough, non-metropolitan district and London boroughs), or to Scottish licensing boards. The Act also created the Gambling Commission.

The Act gives its objectives as

(a) preventing gambling from being a source of crime or disorder, being associated with crime or disorder or being used to support crime,

(b) ensuring that gambling is conducted in a fair and open way, and

(c) protecting children and other vulnerable persons from being harmed or exploited by gambling.


is there anything in that document that protects children from exploitation by gambling?

http://www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk/home.aspx

http://www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk/news-action-and-statistics/news/2018/Gambling-Commission-announces-further-plans-to-protect-children.aspx

The Gambling Commission has set out further commitments to protecting children and young people from the dangers of gambling, building on work already underway in this area.

The Commission asked its expert advisers for specific advice on the critical theme of children, young people and gambling. Bringing together existing work and acting on the advice provided by the Responsible Gambling Strategy Board (RGSB), the Commission’s strengthened focus seeks to ensure the right protections are in place to reduce the risk of harm to children and young people.

The gambling regulator has called for all those responsible for safeguarding children, to work together with the Commission to address the wide range of issues identified in RGSB’s advice. Actions are needed to address:

access and exposure to gambling by children and young people
digital and online risks
preventative education and treatment
evidence collection and consumer engagement.

unfortunately, LASG is only interested in tax and license fees - until some bigwigs kids get ensnared. then their eyes will clear

newbie2018:


hi OP.

I can relate 10000000001% to the agony you feel right now. I was once in your shoes but not my school fees but my hard earned salary after 30days I would loose to virtual in a day or two without attending to rent or basic needs first. I turned a beggar, eating from one room to the other of my co-tenants. my side business was in shambles because it's either am virtualling and can't open my shop or my shop is open but I am in the virtual shop. I did everything to try to stop but all to no avail, I swore with a Bible never to play again... I managed to stay away a week or few days and I was back. to make matters worse I started to work in a bet9ja shop the very first day was a disaster I played 25000 on the spot, the very first day I started the job lucky for me the boss wasn't around, I quickly ran to a cousin sister and cried for help on how my boss would kill me, she pardoned me and lent me the money instantly, I put it into my boss purse, he returned and was very happy the sales I had made. I almost burst in tears in his presence, surprisingly I didn't quit but worked there for 2/3 months more but my brother my salary I never saw because I had shortages upon shortages and sometimes had to use my savings to fill up my mess, my bank account read zero.

guess what I did next and you should try it too. I swore with my MOTHERS LIFE never to play virtual again and believe me I have been Prolly 5years clean now (I LOVE MY MOM TOO MUCH OH) and its even better now because I am no longer her in Nigeria even though back then I played both on and offline.

I don't know what's wrong with the Nigerian Government, this bet9ja ish has ruined the youths financially. in some countries gambling is illegal. why will the Nigerian Government encourage a disease like bet9ja (am not surprised I heard LASG is one of the sponsors, my pastor back then in Nigeria who happens to be a top bank official says bet9ja deposits in billions weekly and this was about 5/6 years ago).

my friend OP you may not try what I did but I am on my knees, I do not even know you but you must stop. you have to put your life on the line someway, I n
do not know if "swearing" works but I am never virtualling with my mother's life .

be smart

Baba, never swear with your mother's life again. She wasn't the one who took you to play gamble.

Next time swear with your own life, so that if you break the promise, you will pay with your own life.

If you know anyone or anybody that has a betting shop ask them if they allow anyone under the age of 18yrs to play.

Infact, many don't even allow young people to come near their shops because many agents have been arrested.

Please try and read to the end. I am a young guy early twenties. I have been playing virtual since 2014. I was never this useless and unpurposeful. My life changed when i entered university. It all started in 2014 when i walked into a nairabet close to my school and saw people playing virtual. I decided to play, as i remember i won that period. I never knew the day i started was the day i gave the devil the key to my life. In 2014, i spent my school fees on virtual, lost everything. Sold my phones, my feeding money and everything. All went to virtual. So i was not able to continue my education, though i remained in school not letting my parents know till this year. Dear reader, from 2014 to date have been the worst years of my life. I stole to play virtual, sold my properties, my clothes, shoes. I became an addict. Even not being a formal student, i still collected money from my parents, school fees and allowance. Everything ends up in virtual house. I could not even buy good clothes.

https://www.premiumtimesng.com/news/headlines/246864-investigation-despite-existing-law-underage-sports-betting-thrives-in-nigeria.html

When 16-year-old Abiodun Kalejaiye was first introduced to sports betting in January 2017, he felt reluctant to participate in the game as he had always imagined it a wasteful adventure. But after much persuasion by friends, he joined them to hang around the neighbourhood sports betting centre in Agege, Lagos.

Nine months after, he said, he now enjoys the game because it is fun and “very lucrative.”

“I first thought it was like MMM but I have realized that it (Sports betting) is very lucrative,” he told a PREMIUM TIMES undercover reporter who was at the sports betting centre in the guise of a naïve but interested bettor. “If you play with as little as N150, you can win as much as N5, 000 to N8, 000 or more depending on how the games ‘come’ out,” he explained further in Yoruba.

Abiodun’s participation in Sports betting, something legally reserved for adults above 18-years-old, is not unique, PREMIUM TIMES investigation reveals.

Section 34 of the National Lottery Act, 2005 stipulates that it is illegal for underage to be involved in betting.

“Any person who knowingly sells to any person under the age of eighteen years any ticket in a lottery operated by a licensee…commits an offence and shall be liable to conviction to a fine of not less than N20, 000 or imprisonment for a term of not less than one year or both such fine and imprisonment,” the law states.

But due to poor enforcement, thousands of underage teenagers like Abiodun, a SSS 2 student of a private secondary school in Tabon-tabon area of Agege, Lagos State, have taken to sports betting for varying reasons.

Many of these underage bettors narrate their reasons for venturing into sports betting to PREMIUM TIMES.

and that doesnt include the exploitation of young men like hardlife. it is crystal cler to them that the guy has no source of income.

Fast forward - solution : if u are an online gambler meet a good friend to help u change your password and never to tell u the password that's after deleting your account.

Virtual/baba ijebu are confirmed gamble! I smh when I see boys playing virtual. You lost money in quick seconds.

You are addicted to gamble. Run 4 40 when you see any bet9ja shop.

But if you have to play, play real bet9ja game where you have total control. Just carry Madrid Psg just single games and put big money that you can loose. That's how they play bet in the abroad.

Above all quit for good and put it in prayer.

Even in countries where gambling is banned, people gamble in secret or illegally (Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, United States).

It is in the nature of humans to gamble. There's really nothing that can be done about it. Before betting companies came to Nigeria, Nigerians were wiring money to foreign countries in order to gamble.

As with most vices, the solution does not lie in curtailing supply but in curtailing demand. Educate people on the dangers of gambling, not regulating or banning gambling.



oyb:


So? you tried to help a single person somehow means you are not a bad person? or it s only things you see in front of you that you are bothered about?

think about this - people are using their school fees , their money for the month, the company money, the money for feeding, their children's school fees , money client gave them to buy car [that one is up your alley, not so?] to fund their gambling habit. these choices will cascade and cause them no end of misery.

there is no such thing as pure black and white. even the most evil men in history have people who will say they did good for them. that is a flawed analogy. you think yahoo boys don't also help people? do you think your helping one single person will somehow undo all the other lives you have destroyed?




and that is precisely why there is a need for government regulation. most 'capitalists'' left to their own devices will destroy their customers for profits. this is not a benign business. it is a business that is actively destroying people. the OP is just one of thousands of people who are destroying their jobs, families etc because of gambling addiction.
