Gambling ads to be banned from child-friendly sites and games

New rules also prohibit celebrities who look under-25 from
appearing in promotions

Gambling adverts will no longer be allowed to appear on websites
or in computer games that are popular with children, under new
rules designed to stop irresponsible gambling.

Bookmakers will be required to use every targeting tool possible
to ensure online gambling promotions are not seen by under-18s.
They will also have to avoid placing gambling adverts on parts of
websites that are popular with children, and stop using celebrities
or other people who appear to be under 25 in their promotions.
