Video transcript: Make it about the game, not the gambling

This is a brightly coloured animation with a game being played on a football field as a crowd cheers.

A young man looking at his phone see the figure $5000, the words 'Place Bet' and the options 'Cancel' and 'Yes.'

He is about to choose 'Yes' then falls and hits the ground with a thud. Standing up the man sees images of his phone with his bank balance at $0, his car being towed away and him arguing with his family.

Back in the stands at the game, his friend points at the players and everyone cheers another goal. He smiles and joins in the cheering then looks down at his phone again and selects cancel.

The game continues with the man and his friend cheering and enjoying the game.The text 'Making it about the game, not the gambling' displays
