AN ONLINE petition calling for a federal ban on sports gambling advertising during live events has attracted almost 5000 signatures.
The petition was created by Mathew Cowden two weeks ago at change.org.
As of Monday afternoon 4600 people had put their names to the petition.
Once the petition reaches 5000 signatures it will be sent to the Australian Senate to be tabled.
