I detest gambling. I think its a terrible idea Lara has been used to worsen peoples addictions and sucker more people into becoming addicted to something as horrible as gambling.

This company contacted me some time ago with some info and media about this. I didn't end up posting it because firstly, I wondered whether or not it was just another whacko (yup, that many contact us) and secondly because I wondered how appropriate the content would be in our mag.

The company since issued a press release, which pretty much covers the first issue, so I published.

Im not having a dig at you, Justin. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif Im just saying I think its disappointing that such a credible, admirable character has been slummed into the underworld of gambling.

I agree AE. I guess you could call me a 'reformed gambler'. I think anything that encourages gambling is a bad idea.
