New figures shows that Australian corporate bookmakers spent $A81m on advertising in the year to 31 October 2015, which is 55 per cent higher than previously. Sportsbet accounted for about $A34m of this expenditure, while CrownBet spent $A16m. Federal MP Alan Tudge says many voters have expressed their dislike for gambling ads on TV, and he notes that some state governments are taking action to increase regulation of such advertising.
