The National Council on Problem Gambling has been ordered to undergo counseling after it bet its entire advertising budget on Germany being booted out of the World Cup.

The NCPG’s advertising campaign backfired spectacularly following Germany’s 7-1 drubbing of host nation Brazil, which continued the European nation’s undefeated match record this season.

Kah See Noh, a spokesman for the NCPG, wo seemed unfazed by this turn of events, said: “We deeply regret our latest misstep, but we know what we’re doing, and we can win our credibility back.”

He added: “Our luck is changing and we are confident our next anti-gambling advertising campaign will be a success. Imagine what we can do. One more try, we promise.”

In unrelated news, the Singapore government has also announced that the Government of Singapore Investment Corporation (GIC) will no longer be responsible for managing the CPF as this responsibility will now be handed over to the NCPG.
