During COVID lockdowns, wagering companies spent more money on advertising and incentives to gamble, and it worked - the amount gambled online significantly increased, and foreign bookmakers were one of the few industries to emerge from this crisis with millions in profit.
We know that sports gambling causes significant harm in our communities. Gambling ads push people to spend more money, more often, and normalise gambling to our kids.
We need to act now to #EndGamblingAds.
Like you, many of our Members of Parliament (MPs) are deeply concerned about the impact of gambling advertising on our community.
Our elected leaders have the power to #EndGamblingAds. They’ve done it before with big tobacco, and need to urgently do the same here!
