Consumer discontent with gambling advertising has reached breaking point in a range of jurisdictions around the world, with a wave of restrictions currently sweeping across Europe.

Gambling adverts have been totally outlawed by Italy’s new populist government, while in the UK new Gambling Commission powers all but guarantee tougher enforcement against operators who breach responsible marketing guidelines.

In both Belgium and Spain there are impending changes to legislation that will restrict the ability to advertise gambling and in several other countries the subject remains high on the political agenda.
