You may have noticed that there have been a lot of commercials for gambling sites on TV lately. Some politicians hate that.
The political parties SP and ChristenUnie are afraid that children and young people will become addicted to gambling. This means that they bet money on sports competitions, for example, and can no longer stop.
During popular football matches, a quarter of commercials are now about gambling.
The politicians of SP and ChristenUnie want no more gambling advertisements to be broadcast before 9 p.m. or that it is even banned altogether. It doesn’t mean this will happen. This is only possible if many more political parties agree with them.
