8 out of 10 people in Lithuania would back ban on gambling advertising

Eight out of ten people in Lithuania would support a total ban on gambling advertising in Lithuania, according to a Baltijos Tyrimai poll for the public broadcaster LRT, published on Thursday.

49 percent would fully support such a ban, while 31 percent would be more likely to support it. 12 percent would rather disagree and 3 percent would strongly disagree. 5 percent had no opinion or did not answer the question.

86 percent of women and 72 percent of men surveyed, as well as 82 percent of residents of major and other cities and 75 percent of residents of rural areas, were in favor of a total ban on gambling advertising.

People aged over 50 (84 percent) were more likely to back the ban, as well as and those earning a monthly income of up to 1,100 euros (85 percent).

The lowest level of support was recorded in the 18-29 age group (70 percent).

Baltijos Tyrimai polled 1,115 Lithuanian adults on March 15-25.

In March, the Seimas accepted for further consideration amendments tabled by Mindaugas Linge, chair of the Committee on Budget and Finance, and a group of MPs from various political groups, proposing to ban gambling advertising completely. The Seimas will further consider these and other amendments on April 25, when they will be discussed by the Committee on Budget and Finance.
