On Thursday's Backchat, with the World Cup in Russia about to kick off we're talking about efforts to combat illegal football betting, and the toll that gambling addiction can take. The Hong Kong Jockey Club, which runs a legal soccer betting operation, is estimating that about $30 billion - and average of $1 billion a day - will be placed in black market bets during the tournament. It says it expects that illegal bookmakers in the territory will make a profit of about $750 million from the World Cup. The police, who are about to launch a crackdown, are warning that illegal betting syndicates are becoming more technologically adept, shifting to the use of instant messaging apps rather than betting slips to gather stakes. Then there's the strain on individuals and families that gambling can cause if it gets out of hand. One counselling centre says it has found that a quarter of people who regularly bet on soccer matches have outstanding debts of more than $200,000. There are also calls to raise the legal age for placing bets from 18 to 21. What do you think? And what more do you think could be done to combat illegal and underage gambling, and to support people with an addiction.
