Already established bookmaker and provider of gambling events, William Hill, has just signed a pan-European code on responsible advertising for online gambling prepared by the European Gaming and Betting Association’s (EGBA).
The code is an essential instrument for all media platforms which puts forward important standards for advertising content and includes in-depth measures for social media, with a focus on the protection of minors.
On this opportunity, MD of William Hill International and CEO of Mr. Green Ltd, Patrick Jonker stated:
“We are very pleased to join the initiative by the EGBA. As license holders within numerous markets, our advertisement policies always follow the local regulatory frameworks. During these difficult times we welcome any initiative that will offer additional protection of minors.”
Secretary-General of EGBA, Maarten Haijer, added:
“Advertising is essential to inform the consumer of the websites which are regulated and steer them away from rogue black-market websites. But advertising should be responsible and protect consumers, particularly minors. We encourage other gambling companies to sign up to the code and look forward to engaging with Europe’s authorities to ensure its success”
