02/09/2012 : RED OR BLACK GAMESHOW CENSURED BY GAMBLING COMMISSION
 
Contestants to display skill to win the cash
 
The UK Gambling Commission has censured Simon Cowell's Red or Black television gameshow for "glamorising" betting.
 
Representatives from the Commission reportedly met with ITV Heads late last week to discuss concerns over the show making gambling look too easy.
 
Unnamed sources claim that the regulator has requested that contestants "demonstrate some degree of skill to win the cash" should the show air another series, reported The Sun.
 
The much anticipated television show has had its own share of ups and downs since launch yielding unexpectedly disappointing ratings.
