Don’t let the claws of problem gambling pull you in. Instead, learn about consequences of gambling addiction to make better decisions for a better future.
As part of the Betting On Our Future (BOOF) media campaign, four of our youth starred in a commercial that aims to raise awareness of problem gambling among young people. It all starts with a simple game of the claw. Starring in this extended version – #DirectorsCut – in order of appearance are Briana Mendez-Padilla, Odin Smith, Vanessa “Vina” Matias and Snigdha Barua.
