Romanian government pushes effort to limit Gambling advertisement

21 Jun 2017

The Romanian government has decided to take strong measures against gambling advertisements by applying new regulations. They want to entirely prohibit gambling spots on the radio and TV, however, not internet ads.

Lawmakers in Romania are considering which way, they should change the laws to amend audio/visual communications.

Through the proposed changes all audio/visual gambling ads would be entirely banned from Romanian radios.

According to a report on Lexology.com, the only “exception” is that bookmakers would be allowed to promote their services in their own premises, and more specificaly, gambling publications.

However there is a gaping hole in the proposed legislation as there is no mention about internet ads. This gives an important advantage to the Romanian gambling industry to operate and promote their services.

At this point in time, it is not clear if this exception will remain in force, but it seems that it is too late for significant changes to be made.

To wrap things up, we have to mention that regulating online gambling is a new market in Romania, as it legally operating in the country only during the past two years. It is totally clear that if no important changes are made in the Bill, the Romanian internet will be inundated by gambling ads.
