    Facebook support is really really bad when it comes to stuff like this. If you were wrongfully banned you would have a slim chance. Now, you have little hope.

    Facebook and gambling ads is a risky area to dabble in.

    I was banned based on the initial email that I received from them without any warning and was told that there wasn't anything I could do to change their mind. I guess they underestimated me because in the end, I was able to persuade them to re-activate my account under the premise that I wouldn't engage in any future promotions of gambling, which I haven't as I use my advertising account for other things as well. So, even though the chances of getting your account re-activated are slim, it is not impossible. And as for re-activating my account it took less than a day once they agreed to go through with allowing me back on to their advertising platform. However note that we exchanged emails back and forth for about 1 week until my account was re-activated.

    FFS, I have had my ads banned in the past and was stone walled and now I have woke up to find they have suspended my bookies offers page because of gambling. All I do is share betting previews and some offers. Yet there are literally thousands of gambling pages and still plenty of gambling ads that come up on my timeline which is the most frustrating part

    FB support indeed is horrible. My advertising account is banned because of gambling ads. They told me these have to pre-approved by FB, but if you ask HOW to submit them, the answer is "your ad needs to be pre-approved". Duhhh, morons!

    When your ads get banned do you loses your normal FB account or just restricted from placing any more ads?

    You have to remember that Facebook is 13+. Not the best place to promote gambling. At the risk of being chastised here, I'd go on to say it's irresponsible.

    We would all like to do everything we can to not target children.

    OF all the things that these precious 13-17 year olds will see on Facebook - I reckon that a betting promotion on Arsenal to beat Stoke City is pretty tame Mojo ... but I do see your point.

    However, it's a pretty simple thing to set your page / group / ads to only be viewed by those that the 17+ years of age ... I've set the GG facebook page that way even though the gambling side only gets a rare mention.

    So if age rules are set I really don't see the problem.

    17 is not legal Gooner. Hell, they are not even out of high school. Illegal!

    Surprised at you Gooner.

    I'll just add that not only do you risk underage players but you also risk parents reporting your gambling sites on facebook. As I would. I don't want that for my kids. Should an underage player win, they will not be able to withdraw as we know. It's a nightmare all around. I've seen it.

    It's a lose lose.

    Responsibility starts at 16 in some Western Democracies.

    UK = 16 for playing the lottery. 16 for smoking, 16 for sex / marriage, 17 for driving, 18 for drinking.18 for gambling shops.
    AUS = 17 for driving - 18 across the board for the rest.
    NZ = 16 for lotto, 16 for driving, 18 for sex / marraige, 18 for horse racing, 18 for drinking, 18 for voting, 20 to enter a physical casino.

    Given Facebook surprising lack of R18 control (it is a typical age of consent to many things) I am not outraged at 17yos seeing gambling. I don't think it's robbing anyone of their childhood - and to react with outrage and exclamation marks is OTT.

    If you look at casino sites there is a red circle that x out under 18. There is gamecare etc.

    It's clear that no one under 18 is allowed to play at casinos. Affiliates abide by that. There is an obvious movement by affiliates to protect underage gambling.

    I am not concerned about who is allowed to do what when. I am only concerned not to have children gamble. Apologies for exclamation marks. Won't happen again.

    when you set up you can limit ads to 18+, no point advertising to younger as they can't gamble anyway, so they dont see the ads

    In the UK the TV ads are full of gambling ads, the biggest soap operas are sponsored by betting companies, then there are billboards and the sides of buses and google adwords and a million other media. You cant stop under 18s seeing the operators' gambling adverts in the UK. They are rammed down your throat. So if you are stating that nobody under 18 should see a gambling ad (and 'an affiliate is unethical if he lets it happen') then this view is so inappropriate to the reality of advertising in the UK. I have had banner adverts on racecourses. They were visible to anyone under 18 with a pair of eyes.

    The valid point tbo makes is that it is simply pointless and if there is a method of stopping ads showing to under 18s then obviously use it to save yourself wasted clicks.

    As for Facebook, they make up their policies as they go along. There is no consistency and no rhyme or reason. Headless chickens. Some affiliates manage to advertise for longer than others. I had my ads stopped after several months. That was a good few years ago. Personally I found it a waste of money on facebook anyway so no great loss. Just a badly run company in this respect, full of contradictions.
