Govt tightens rules on e-casino advertising

Three to one it'll never work

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The Government looks set to clamp down on some types of advertising for online casinos, the FT reports today.

The problem appears to be with those online casinos based outside of the UK. While they are free to plug their businesses, they are not allowed to tempt punters with attractive offers such as being prepared to match stakes.

Culture Secretary Tessa Jowell told the paper that e-casinos breaking that flout regulations will be prosecuted.

"I am not willing to turn a blind eye to this and have agreed with the Gambling Commission that we should crack down on advertisers and publishers who knowingly break the law," she said. ®
