Poll: Should gambling companies be limited in how they advertise?

High profile GAA players have shared stories about how gambling addictions affected their lives – so should gambling ads be restricted?

SHOULD THERE BE a limit on how gambling companies advertise on TV and online?

The Guardian is reporting today that betting companies have increased their market spend by 56% since 2014, with 5 times more spent online than on TV commercials. In November, Sky announced that it would introduce a limit to the gambling ads it shows due to concerns from customers.

According to figures by the Department of Health, 64.5% of Irish people aged 15 and over had gambled in the past year and 41.4% had done so in the past month.

So: should gambling companies be restricted in online and TV advertising?
