Gaming Authorities Address Gambling Advertising

The Remote Gaming Association has expressed its concerns related to gambling ads and marketing after numerous complaints handled by the Advertising Standards Authority.

The UK Gambling Commission is determining the best way to deal with unsuitable gambling advertising.

In related news, William Hill is also working with the commission on the topic of Fixed Odds Betting Terminals and gambling advertisements.

'We expect to implement the measures to increase scrutiny of higher stake gaming machine play in the first half of 2015, based on the Government's plan to legislate in the autumn," Will Hill management reported.

"This is in addition to the industry's own voluntary Code for Responsible Gambling, which was implemented by 1 March 2014.

"We believe there is value to all concerned in taking an appropriate amount of time to embed these measures and to assess their benefit, alongside reviewing the outcome of the Responsible Gambling Trust ongoing behavioural research, due to report in the autumn.'

    I am really not sure even if gambling should be advertised by TV at all. I think it is generally not the great idea, and probably only sportsbooks while some sports events, or poker sites, but definetely not online casinos.
