Majority of public support total ban on UK gambling ads

ban on UK gambling ads

A nationwide poll found that the majority of the public supports a total ban on gambling advertisements. Meanwhile, three-quarters of the public believe restrictions should be tighter than they are now.

The Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) urged the government to use its review of gambling regulation to force the industry to reduce the number of advertisements it places on TV, radio, and online, citing a survey of more than 12,000 people.

According to Christina Marriott, the RSPH’s chief executive, gambling is addictive. It “should be no different” than tobacco in terms of marketing restrictions.

According to the YouGov poll, 77% of adults support a ban on gambling advertisements on television before 9 p.m. A similar number supported similar restrictions on social media and online.
