Gambling News and Lucky Stories

The result of the discussion by the Lithuanian Seimas of the issue of additional restrictions on gambling advertising in the country was the adoption of all the previously proposed amendments. Now any promotion of gambling in Lithuania will be illegal. All possible types of promotion of gambling entertainment were banned – advertising and information campaigns that promote information materials, promotions, test entertainment, lotteries – any stimulating actions and events, both online and offline formats. According to one of the authors of this initiative, Mykolas Mayauskas, such measures are necessary for maximum protection of the country’s population. Experts believe that today’s gambling advertising is too aggressive and intrusive. This can greatly harm people who are prone to gambling addiction. It should be noted that 108 Lithuanian deputies voted “for”, eight members of the Seimas abstained. The issue of combating gambling addiction is acute in many countries of the world. The My Lucky Story publication published information about the plans of the UK government to ban gambling advertising on daytime television broadcasts, and the British regulator has tightened the rules for placing gambling advertising for all football clubs in the country.
