Father of hockey stars says sports betting ads are out of control

More and more people are worried about the potential impact on children because of the huge amount of online gambling ads. Most recently, three popular hockey players, PK, Malcolm, and Jordan’s father, Karl Subban, shared concerns about a Canadian-wide barrage of betting ads and its impact on young viewers.

The flood of betting ads in Canada can be explained by the opening of the iGaming market for third-party operators in Ontario, which became a reality in April 2022. Now that there are more websites to choose from, betting possibilities are easier than ever in Canada. But by comparison, operators have increased their marketing efforts and such advertising has become quite common.

In a recent interview, Mr. Subban, the current principal of the school, was reminded that the part of the brain responsible for decision-making was not fully developed until he was 25. He also joined a campaign called “No Gambling Advertising,” which requires all game ads to be removed from all hockey broadcasts.

He worries about his grandchildren being exposed to sports betting ads during this NHL season and believes they are undermining sports and ruining the family’s experience. He also believes that anything will help and mentioned that there should be a limit to the amount of these ads because professional athletes, actors, and actresses can be quite influential in them.

Ontario’s Alcohol and Gaming Commission has proposed banning the use of sports athletes and celebrities in light of the recent backlash against over-advertising. This is because popular individuals, such as professional athletes, often appeal to children. However, the changes are still pending and are awaiting submission from stakeholders.

But some people think the damage is already done. An anonymous gambling addict who is recovering said he has met many families with children as young as eight and is suffering from problem gambling. He told of a case in which a child took her mother’s credit card without her knowledge, bet on games and did everything he could online.

In addition, he thinks that Canada’s regulated i-gaming market has created more problems because more people are looking into illegal books to make bets. The anonymous gambler explained that when people run out of credit, they often take out loans on the street. In this case, bookmakers agree to extend credit to those who cannot repay, resulting in more serious consequences.

The Canadian Mental Health Association has also called for restrictions or bans on gambling advertising. The organization recently advised AGCO that all gambling ads should be banned to protect teenagers and young people.
