EC to set state wide gambling advertising restrictions

euromoneyThe European Commission (EC) is set to urge its member states to implement advertising standards and social warnings regarding online betting and gambling advertising.

The EC intends to implement advertising warnings on all forms of gambling advertising in order to curve problem/compulsive gambling in member states.

A draft European legislation is in the process of being written by the European Union (EU). Executives will present the advertisement legislation to the European Commission who will decide whether the recommendations will be passed into European state wide law.

It is yet unclear what type of restrictions will be recommended by the EU, presently most European member states monitor independently advertising standards with regards to online gambling.

EC member states France and Great Britain are two countries that have set up helplines to help customers seek advice and help with regards to problem gambling.
