David Dawson started this petition to Advertising Standards Authority (Broadcast) Ltd.

The UK, in common with the international community, is presently in a state of crisis owing to the Covid-19 pandemic. Many people may lose jobs as businesses collapse owing to a prolonged lockdown. Those suffering poor mental health are also at risk owing to social isolation. The continued broadcasting of television advertisements offering large monetary wins through online gaming/gambling could be attractive to those facing financial challenges or impaired judgement through mental illness. Personal finances and dependent families may ultimately be at risk through losses due to gaming. I am therefore calling for such advertising to be suspended during this present crisis. Your help in supporting this petition would be greatly valued. Thank you.
