Sinn Féin - On Your Side

26 Country Gambling Strategy

17 August, 2021

This document outlines Sinn Féin’s proposals to modernise gambling regulations in the South, making them fit-for-purpose to tackle problem gambling in 2021. Current legislation is decades out of date and has failed to keep pace with the online world, resulting in our young people in particular being exposed to often predatory forms of online advertising and gambling. Sinn Féin’s policies would see real regulation on advertising, a social fund to support gambling addiction services, a ban on gambling with credit cards and other real protections for those harmed by gambling.
