    Casino magnate and GOP mega donor Sheldon Adelson has released his latest ad to help stymie the move towards legalized online gambling in the US.The ad makes the claim that the uber popular gaming mobile app Angry Birds acts as a gateway to gambling addiction .The advertisement features a young boy discussing how he had graduated from Angry Birds to using his dad's credit card for playing at online gambling sites. I was playing Angry Birds and then, you know, I just found it, a teen narrates, as images of online blackjack and poker tables flash on screen. It's a lot cooler knowing that I'm playing a real game, not just, like, Candy Crush or Fruit Ninja. Adelson is heavily backing new draft legislation that would look to completely abolish most forms of online gambling including that which is already legal in three states including New Jersey, Nevada and Delaware.<a href="http://www.gambling911.com/gambling-news/angry-birds-gateway-gambling-addiction-new-adelson-ad-claims-video-040214.html" >source</a> Here's the propaganda.

    I have no words. That is the most absurd thing I have ever seen. How do you just find gambling sites while playing Angry Birds? Doesn't even make sense, I mean I play gambling sites and I play Angry Birds as well. As far as I recall the two have never crossed paths. He should have just left the angry birds part out, that to me, would have more believable.

    This is absolutely crazy.  That like saying someone who started drinking soft drinks progress to alcohol.  I really think what we do with our own money is our own business.  There are some people that are responsible gamblers.
