Why are there so many gambling ads on tv lately??

Answered 1 month ago

Especially during prime time tv shows, how is this allowed?? It is a trigger for problem gamblers who are simply trying to watch tv. They don’t advertise drugs or smoking, so why is gambling allowed??

Have an answer?

The government owns the biggest gambling site - lotto. Make too much money to ban it.

Personally I wish it was restricted until after 9pm. My ASD obsessive 8 year old is asking what these apps are because they look cool & is becoming fixated. Tv is now off when kids are around.

I agree, they should be restricted.
