The advertising of gambling during sports matches is becoming more frequent. For example, it has been reported that more than one-in-six ads shown during AFL matches are gambling-related.Now the Turnbull Government is reported to be considering banning the advertising of gambling during televised sporting broadcasts.
Gambling expert, Dr Christopher Hunt from the University of Sydney supports such a ban, saying that "advertising that promotes the idea that gambling is an easy way to make money is likely to prime our kids for developing gambling problems in the future".
