UK “Official” View on Advertising Issued

We have some official guidance on advertising in Great Britain by “overseas” gaming sites. Today, the UK Gambling Commission and the UK Department for Culture, Media and Sport jointly issued their view of the application of the Gaming Act 1968 to the practice of foreign operators advertising in the UK. The “Joint Guidance” paper as issued can be found here. As you can imagine, they are of the view that much of it is illegal. They assert that they will refer individual cases to the Crown Prosecution Service for the initiation of legal proceedings when they consider advertisements to be illegal. We shall see whether the Crown Prosecution Service, and more importantly, the Courts, will ultimately agree with their view.
