The British government is opposed to advertising gambling and wanted to limit online stakes.
After researching gambling addiction for a year in the UK, 50 members of parliament began urging for a ban on all gambling advertising and a reduction in the online bet from a maximum of £2.
The parliamentary group said in a report on Tuesday that all laws needed to be reviewed since quarantine showed that people needed outside help. Despite the fact that the sport is now also in quarantine, gambling people go on casinos and slot machines spending a lot of money.
Kenny Alexander, chief executive of Ladbrokes Coral owner GVC, British betting and gambling company, said in his blog, according to FT.
the ban would only aggravate the problem and not solve it, as players would place bets on offshore sites,
The laws on gambling were promised to be reviewed last year, therefore it's not known when the words will take effect.
