Google declined to advertise gambling in Italy

The American transnational corporation Google has informed the Italian advertisers about the termination of granting of the advertising content connected with gamblings. This decision was made after the issuance of the decree of the Prime Minister of Italy Luigi Di Mayo.

The announcement noted that the company has changed the section of the gambling and games policy in AdWords, concerning advertising in Italy. The new revised policy has taken immediate effect. Google has also stressed that advertisers authorized to promote gambling services and products in other jurisdictions will be able to continue doing that.

Stanleybet CEO Giovanni Garrisi, believe the Decree will be “changed at the parliamentary level.” And indeed, this week saw the Senate and Chamber of Deputies Studies Service submit a report suggested that the Decree’s absolute prohibition “does not appear compatible” with existing legislation upholding the legality of most gambling advertising.
