Spanish Government Hopefuls Want Gambling Advertising Treated Like Tobacco

Spain’s most popular political party has pledged to heavily regulate gambling advertising, treating it similarly to tobacco products that are all but banned from any marketing. 

The Spanish Socialists Workers' Party won 123 out of 350 seats in the country’s latest elections, but has struggled to form a majority government with fellow left-wing party Podemos.

On September 3, Pedro Sanchez, head of the socialist party and acting Prime Minister, announced a set of 300 proposals aimed at improving equality and social justice following his party’s election victory.

One of the proposals reads “we will approve regulation of gambling advertising and online betting, state-wide and similar to that of tobacco products”.
