I don't know if BetFair is a local ad in PA/NJ or airs in multiple markets where gambling is legal.
The Fanduel ads are brutal, these are just as bad.

Few other ads with this company, these one spaz in a heavy Jersey accent bragging how he screamed and scared his dog when he won.  Bunch of gambling addicts 

And what is with the woman's voice, she chain smoking 7 packs of cigs a day?Dead

I'm surprised they didn't give her a voice-over.

Yeah, I think it's a Jersey/PA thing. At least, the commercials I see seem really "Jersey" to me. Everyone seems to have that Bergen/Essex County accent.

There's one where a woman talks about how, when she won, she started screaming and woke everyone up.

"It was crazy!"

Of course it was, you idiot. What do you expect when you start screaming in the middle of the night?

Then there's the kind of hot, blonde 60-ish cousins:

"The neighbors hate us cuz we keep yelling 'BONUS, BONUS!!'."

Maybe they hate you cuz they think you're running a whore house:

"BONE US, BONE US!!"

Betfair ads just flat out stink. I never quite understood why online gambling is such a thing here in South East PA and New Jersey. With casinos in Atlantic City, Philadelphia, Bethlehem, Chester and so on, is there really a market for online casinos around here?
Back from an unexpected hiatus. Time to rip ads a new one all over again.

They are terrible, and the FanDuel ads also! I get the ads shoving this down our throats, online gamblers when the casinos were shutdown. But they've been airing well before this virus, and now - when everything is open (for now).

I think it targets people up at 2, 3am...wake up bored. Don't wanna drive to Chester, Parx, Atlantic City and have an urge to drop $$$. 

I was never into gambling at all, I tried a few times but it was so aggravating in A.C. I recall going to an open slot machine, older woman sitting right next to it..she went off like a crazy nutcase stating "don't you see the bucket!!!!" (She had a small bucket in the open coin return of this slot machine.) The international symbol that that machine was taken - by her?? WTF?. She was sitting at the machine, but also playing the 2 machines next to her at once. What an a**! I mumbled "f- you grump!" and walked off.

I think these are just zome serious gamblers. They don't need the dressing up or the driving or the buffets or the cocktails or the shows. All they need is the gambling. The rest is just a waste of time and money.

@Thor: I think you're right that one. Just the serious gamblers who want to spend, spend, and did I mention spend.
@ThatNerdInPhilly: Oh Jesus, those FanDuel ads are obnoxious. From bombing local television stations to when I'm occasionally watching videos on YouTube. Last thing I want to see while watching a video by Lore Reloaded while breaking down the Dominion War from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine is a damn ad for gambling. Like, WTF! If I'm watching a Star Trek video, I want sci-fi ads, not gambling nonsense.

It's currently EXTREMELY annoying  - especially now that sports is back. Every other commercial on local TV (especially during the news) are these f'ing FanDuel, Betfair, DraftKings, this Philly casino Rivers Casino. On and on nonsense. Angry

Plus, the frequency of these commercials really amped up when COVID shut down the casinos.

A bad, bad combo for those prone to gambling problems.

I've played 'casino' games on my PC, and judging from the amounts I 'lose', I'm not about to try the real thing. LOL  (Plus, I think (but cannot prove) that the computer gambling games also cheat, so sure as hell not going to play online games...  )
