Most media channels in the Netherlands now have a ban on gambling advertisements, which include television, radio, and print.
Gambling Ads Banned
Advertising in public places is also now banned under the new regulations. This will include not only places like casinos and slot parlors, but also other places like billboards, bus shelters, and cafés.
A gradual implementation will also put an end to the sponsorship of events and clubs related to gambling. Sponsorship of events and programs will be prohibited from July 1, 2024. Sponsorship of venues and clubs will also end by 2025. Additionally, the latest regulations enforce additional limitations on affiliate advertising.
Belgium has also banned all forms of gambling advertising, which is even more extensive than the ban in the Netherlands.
