Oly a few days after the end of the advertisig campaign where the former Arsenal and Asto Villa player Paul Merson becam a new face, Better Bet announced they were pulling the campaign, as the firm had received lots of complaints.
The reason for that turned became the fact that Paul had addictions to alcohol, drugs and gambling in the past. It’s been revealed that Merson had kicked his addictions to alcohol and drugs but was still fighting his gambling addiction.
During the campaign Merson was meeting customers, signing autographs and many other things, but he never had any complaints unless the campaign was over.
Better Bet would not want Paul Merson to see it in the way that they did not want work with him, but they would like to work with Merson in the future.
