    Default U.K. lifts ad ban for online gambling

    It's OK to advertise online gambling on TV and radio in the U.K. again as long as you follow these guidelines:
    ...gambling adverts must not link the activity to seduction, sexual success or enhanced attractiveness.


    Advertisers are also precluded from suggesting the activity is a rite of passage.



    Finally, they must not show gambling which is irresponsible or could lead to “financial, social or emotional harm”.

    Worth noting that this doesn't come in until September and there are a few other guidelines that have to be adhered to.

    This is excellent.... I tend to agree with them about not having the whole "sex sells" thing for promoting online gaming sites....I would not agree with online gaming sites using commercials like the 1-900 phone sex lines you see late at night for trying and "lure" players into spending their money at an online gaming site.
