Up 25% for the year to June 30 2106.

The Australian newspaper has revealed new Nielson data indicating a 25% rise to $125 million in betting company advertising spend compared to a year ago.

The data, which covers the year to June 30 2016, is believed to be just the tip of the iceberg as it doesn't include pay-TV where most ads during sporting telecasts are for wagering operators, The Australian report identifies.

In terms of advertising spend, Sportsbet topped the list with $38 million, a 20% increase over last year. Ladbrokes and CrownBet spent around $20 million, while Tabcorp spent $18 million and Tatts, $8 million.

William Hill and bet365 tightened their belts, reducing ad spend by 21% and 39% respectively.

The data is sure to add fuel to Senator Xenophon's fire, as he continues to push a motion to ban gambling advertising during hours where children are likely to be watching TV.
