The Portuguese parliament has proposed a ban on gambling advertisements.


Four bills have been debated in the Republic’s Assembly aimed at prohibiting gambling advertising during the day.
The four bills debated in the Assembly of the Republic – by the Left Bloc, PCP, PAN, and Cristina Rodrigues, a non-registered deputy – all propose a ban on gambling and betting advertising between 07:00 and 22:30, similar to the rules for alcoholic beverages, with the Left Bloc also calling for the end of advertising for instant lotteries, such as scratch cards.

The Left Bloc’s proposal, according to Deputy Isabel Pires, aims to “give the force of law to what has been understood as only a recommendation in the sector’s self-regulation agreement,” as well as extending the “restrictions to the online format, which entails increased risks and whose clear growth was driven by the pandemic.”
