This sees the rate of exposure fall to 2008 and 2009 levels, when children saw 2.2 and 2.7 gambling ads on TV, respectively.In total, these ads made up less than 2% of all TV ads seen by children each week. This represented a significant decline from 2013’s peak, when children saw an average of 4.4 gambling ads per week.The AA is not the only organisation to have hit back at the APPG findings, with the Gambling Commission also blasting claims that it was “not for for purpose”, dismissing the parliamentary group’s assertion as “untrue”.Other recommendations made by the APPG included a ban on online in-play betting and a new review into the use of bonuses and incentives by gambling operators, to determine whether these contributed to harmful gambling, as well as an end to VIP schemes.
