Paddy Power Taking BETS On Pistorius Trial Verdict

March 3, 2014

Readers, Paddy Power have come up with some awful advertising campaigns in their time.

But this surely has to be the worst yet, and the worst thing they have taken bets on yet.

Oscar-744x1024

Is it even legal to bet, or accept bets, on the outcome of a legal trial? Regardless, in this, a murder case,  it is in terrible taste.

Please join me in complaining to the ASA.

And please tell me, how can I complain to Paddy Power for taking bets on this at all?

Many thanks for info go out to reader Del Pickup.

Updated 2am: I’m very pleased to see that the Independent covered this yesterday and that there is a petition we can sign to MPs, asking them to tell Paddy Power to pull it.

Huffington Post also covered it, for which they must be thanked.
