Turkey to clamp down on gambling advertising

News on 9 Feb 2018

The Turkey Telegraph reports the filing of a new draft proposal that will impose strict regulations on gambling advertising across all media channels.

The proposal demands stringent time frames in which betting advertisements can and cannot be flighted in a bid to further protect minors.

Advertisers will not be able to advertise betting or gambling between eight and nine in morning and five and eight in the afternoon on weekdays. Nor between nine o’clock and twelve o’clock in the mornings on holidays or weekends.

Advertisers will not be able to use people or characters with “public relevance whether fictional or real” that may appeal to minors.

A ”Play responsibly” message will have to appear in all televised betting ads two seconds before the ad ends.  The message will also have to be included in all radio advertising.

Restrictions on bonusing for sign ups are also included in the draft and are maxed at Euro 500.
