Gambling advertising

Gambling: no advertising and not before age 21

Much more prominent, varied and strong warnings on advertisements for lotteries, sports betting and other gambling activities, and a minimum age of 21 for participation. The Superior Health Council set out these recommendations in report 9790, as required by current legislation, particularly on the form and content of advertising that is still permitted.

Nevertheless, for the Council, the most effective measure to counter addiction risks is simply to ban all forms of advertising.
