Siversands Casino’s dirty rotten sins – lest we forget

Written by Warren Whitfield. Posted in Causes

No more Dolph too?

Seeing as the Pigs from Pigs Peak Casino are in the press recently, reminding us just what ruthless opportunistic and greedy pigs they are, I though it prudent to remind everyone of the filthy lows Silversands Casino stooped to in 2008, when they used Heroin to entice desperate people to gamble online.

I wrote the following at the time and sent out releases to every journalist at the time including Carte Blanche, 3rd Degree and Special Assignment. I even made sure that Derek Watts received them through his personal fax. But only one journalist in the country was willing to listen, (Natasha Prince – Argus) and her editor never had the courage or thewisdom to expose it. Well here’s the truth about the compaby Hollywood has been Dolph Lundgren decided to endorse..

The Addiction Action Campaign announced today that it had discovered a website domain, namely http://www.heroin.co.za, which was being used to divert people seeking information on heroin to http://www.silversandscasino.com

AAC chairperson Warren Whitfield said that this practice was “absolutely deplorable”. He said that the organisation had logged a complaint with Uniform and requested that the domain’s ownership be reviewed.

High Court must consider the harm caused by online gambling

The Addiction Action Campaign (AAC) said today that they applauded the High Court’s ruling that online gambling activities and advertising is illegal.

“This is fantastic news” said AAC’s CEO Warren Whitfield who has been aggressively challenging the gambling industry’s practices whilst legislation surrounding online gambling has been undefined.

“However, the High Court must consider the harm caused by online gambling to South Africans when Pigs Peak Casino appeals the ruling. In order to do so, it should order the measurement of the harm caused through a national study. The study must determine what percentage of online gamblers are problem gamblers and how much of the revenue generated by online casinos is derived from such. The court must also determine what percentage of online gambling revenue is spent by operators on prevention and addiction treatment”, he said.
Historically, the gambling industry as a whole has neglected their social responsibility in addressing the harm their industry causes. Until now, less than 0.1% of their revenue is spent on harm reduction whilst an estimated 50% of their revenue comes from problem gamblers. The online gambling industry is no different.

Whitfield said, “When gambling was legalised in South Africa, one of the justifications given by government was that it was introduced as a form of taxation in order to provide more tax revenue for social causes. In reality, it has created more poverty and neglected social issues.”
