Gambling site's 'no strings attached' offer had strings attached

Gambling site's 'no strings attached' offer had strings attached | Online Gaming and Poker News | Scoop.it

The UK's advertising watchdog has banned an online betting advert for free bets because the company behind it did not make clear that users needed to accumulate certain winnings before the money could be withdrawn.

 

The advert for online casino 888.com contained information that was not properly qualified and omitted details consumers needed to make an informed choice about the offer, the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) ruled. It therefore deemed the ad to be misleading and banned 888.com from using it again in its "current form".

ASA Adjudication on Gala Coral Group Ltd - Advertising Standards Authority

ASA Adjudication on Gala Coral Group Ltd - Advertising Standards Authority | Online Gaming and Poker News | Scoop.it

Interesting ASA adjudication against a Gala Bingo email for not explicitly stating that a deposit bonus had 5x wagering requirements within the email itself. Providing a link to a T&Cs page with that info is not enough, as going to the T&C page was not a requirement of getting the bonus – a player could read the email and deposit into their account without clicking on the PLAY NOW link in the email.
