Canterbury veteran Sam Perrett says betting advertising has become too pervasive in the NRL and gambling is an increasing problem among young players.

A day after the game was rocked by allegations of match-fixing, the Bulldogs winger said he had noticed more players being sucked in by gambling.

Perrett also said the game's ties with bookmakers were having a negative effect.
