Petition text

Crackdown on addictive betting machines and adverts.

Why is this important?

Betting machines and TV adverts are helping to cause thousands of gambling addictions across the UK. They're devestating and can tear families apart. But now the government is considering new rules to restrict adverts, particularly when children are watching, and limits on how much people can gamble on betting machines in one go.

Gambling companies will lose money if this crackdown happens - so they’ll be trying to change the government's mind. A huge petition could make the government stand firm and get tough on gambling companies.
