Victoria, Australia to Ban Sports Betting Ads

Victoria, Australia to Ban Sports Betting AdsVictorian Government in Australia is looking to ban sports betting ads according to Gaming Minister, Marlene Kairouz.  In a recent interview, the State Government is looking to submit a proposal that would ban all sports betting ads that are near schools and in public transportation in Victoria, Australia.

Kariouz said that “What we’re wanting to do is ensure they’re no longer exposed to betting advertisements while they go to and from school each day.” 

A majority of the Australian population supports the ban according to the Gaming ministry as it would also restrict gambling advertisement in places that are frequently used by minors.

No details have been released as to which places would be banned but that they would eventually be worked out during the consultation phase.  According to the latest statistics, sports gambling problems have already cost the community of Victoria between $1.5 billion to $2.8 billion per year.
