    Default Accusations of Gambling Ads Targeting Minors: APCW Perspectives for 28 August, 2020

    More Accusations of
    Gambling Ads Targeting Minors



    The UK Advertising Standards Authority is accusing
    gambling advertisers of targeting children,
    but hasn't named the offenders or where the
    alleged adverts were displayed.
    Also, information on our session at the
    SBC Digital Summit and a new face at GVC Holdings.

    Since the ASA didn't name who the operators are and what the 8 websites are, along with those 70 different commercials, then they really can't be certain of this and have no right to just point the finger at our industry.

    An honourable video as usual JT. Stay safe and looking forward to the next week.

    Those poor children again who we can relate to anything gambling wise. Of course if they are actually gambling, that has nothing to do with their parents.

    Strange that the UK Advertising Standards Authority doesn't seem to give a toss about McDonald's targeting kids with toys to push their junk food onto them. A far bigger issue in the UK than the billions of kids addicted to gambling. The ones with made up gambling addictions invented by their parents who blew credit cards on gambling then blamed their children.

    Well said, and spot on - Gov., hypocrisy at its finest!
