Rejected petition Stop gambling adverts on tv

Televised gambling adverts encourage a bad addiction to gambling, potentially ruining lives. These adverts normalises gambling which is unhealthy for anyone. Slogans such as “when the fun stops, stop” don’t do enough to prevent the terrible addictions that these adverts could cause.
