The charity was highlighting a genuine problem, but it couldn't have picked a worse team for its fictional betting scenario, as was proved by the result last night.

"Who do you think is going to win the World Cup?"

"How about you, Andy?"

"I hope Germany will win... My dad bet all my savings on them."

Awkwardly, it looks like Andy's dad could be in some serious money soon after Germany thrashed Brazil 7-1 in the semi-finals.


Andy and his family should really be smiling now after Germany won the entire tournament, beating Argentina 1-0 in extra time in the final on Sunday.

But The National Council on Problem Gambling in Singapore tweaked its advert after Mario Götze's dramatic winner.

The ad now highlights how hard some people with gambling problems find it to stop.
