Gambling Industry Toughens Rules On Television Adverts

Thu, 20th Aug 2015 13:54


LONDON (Alliance News) - The Industry Group for Responsible Gambling Thursday announced that gambling companies will no longer advertise sign-up offers on television before 9pm,

following the completion of a review into gambling advertising that was initiated by the government in 2014.

Sports Minister Tracey Crouch welcomed the move but added that she also wants the industry, alongside regulators, to examine how social media is being used to market its products to ensure that young people are protected.

"I welcome the IGRG?s steps taken to strengthen the industry code and end sign-up offers on television before 9pm. However, I also want to see gambling operators, regulators and social media firms come together to examine if more needs to be done to ensure that marketing for gambling products is not reaching young people through social media," Crouch said.

"I will continue to look at the issue of gambling advertising regularly and will not hesitate to take further action if necessary to protect people from being harmed by gambling," she added.
