Don'ts


1. Advertising must not be conducted:


  • Using personal data which you already had in your possession before obtaining a licence or use personal data which are obtained from another operator who did not have a licence at the time such personal data were acquired.
  • During sports matches, horse races, harness races, for bets on those matches or races that target those who are present at or watching the relevant match or race other than on the games of chance interface.

  • When a player is availing himself of an addiction-prevention measure, such as accessing a website for a care institution or the possibility of being included in CRUKS
  • When a player is availing himself of an opportunity to amend the limits and when the player is receiving information on gambling limits.

Do not mislead


2. Advertising must not:


  • Create the impression that the consumer has already won or will win a prize.
  • Create the impression that by performing a certain act the consumer will win a prize or will obtain another similar benefit, whereas there is only a chance of this happening.
  • Present an unrealistic or incorrect picture of a product or service.
  • Attach conditions to the (once-only) free participation in a game of chance, when these conditions negate the free nature of the participation.
  • Neglect the message that clarifies the duration of the participation in a game of chance or the message that the free participation in a game of chance is automatically converted into paid participation without the consumer's consent.
  • Create the impression that the consumer can generally exercise a dominant influence on the outcome of a game of chance offered by a license holder.
  • Create the impression that the consumer can generally exercise a dominant influence on their winnings by taking part in training, education or any other (online) course.
  • Give the impression that the Board of Directors of the NGA has approved the recruitment and advertising activities, the games of chance or the license holder, other than through the neutral statement that a license holder has a license pursuant to the BGA.
  • Give the impression that the Board of Directors of the NGA has approved the recruitment and advertising activities, the games of chance or the license holder, other than through the neutral statement that a license holder has a license pursuant to the BGA.
  • Omit that the advertising has come from, or is being made for, an online game of chance operator.
  • Indicate that players can participate anonymously.

Do not incite excessive participation in games of chance


3. Advertising must not:


  • Incite impulsive decisions.
  • Create a strong sense of urgency, meaning promotions such as “today only”, “early birds”, “two for one”, and bonuses such as a “happy hour” bonus.
  • Promote games of chance as a solution to financial or personal problems.
  • Promote gambling as a lifestyle.
  • Trivialise the consequences of excessive participation. In this context texts such as 'it is safe to play', 'playing is child's play', 'harmless entertainment', 'risk-free' and 'completely safe gambling' should be avoided.
  • Use any language or other means which display, compare and/or encourage antisocial or criminal behaviour.
  • Promote any behaviour that can objectively lead to financial damage.
  • Promote that participation leads to social acceptance or happiness, is more important than family and friends or professional or educational obligations, will enhance personal qualities or self-confidence, can help the player set a good example, is a replacement for work or is like any other standard investment.
  • Promote that there no risk of loss if this is not the case, or that the game of chance is free from risk while this is not the case.
  • Explicitly exploit people's sense of greed.
  • Exploit people's superstitions about gambling or luck.

Do not be aggressive


  • Advertising must not suggest or create the impression that participants or prize winners are obliged to cooperate in any form of advertising.
  • Advertising by means of door-to-door campaigns is prohibited.
  • Advertising must not extend to sideline activities in unrelated industries. This means that it is not permitted to make participation in games of chance a condition to the participation in or the procurement of other activities or products, for example by making participation in a game of chance a condition for taking out a discounted magazine subscription or discounted healthcare insurance.

Do not be irresponsible (in light of the risk analysis)


4. Advertising must not:


  • Be conducted with a strong recruiting effect for a game of chance of which the risk analysis has demonstrated that it has a high-risk potential. Examples include banners, pop-ups or e- mails in which players are alerted to big bonuses or saving schemes for taking part in these games of chance.
  • Increase a risk factor of the game of chance that was identified in the risk analysis. If, for example, the risk analysis shows that the short-odds character of a certain game of chance entails a high risk of addiction, recruitment and advertising activities of license holders that point out the speed of the game and the speed with which the prize is determined increase that risk factor.
  • Encourage players to continue playing, whilst the risk analysis has demonstrated that the game of chance involves a high-risk potential. Examples of this include bonuses linked to the number of times a person plays or advertising activities aimed at creating social pressure (“what if one your friends will win the prize?”).
  • Present a game of chance as a relatively harmless game, while the risk analysis has demonstrated that it involves a high-risk potential.

Do not target minors or vulnerable groups of persons


  • ✓  as many safeguards as possible (i.e., excluding vulnerable groups from targeted advertising, age-gating below 24, agreements with third parties, using closed social media groups, using whitelisting).
  • ✓ This rule has existed for licence holders since 2021. After 1 July 2023, in principle advertising must not reach vulnerable people at all.
  • ✓ As mentioned above, there is an exception for sponsorship during the transition period of one or two years
  • ✓ Nevertheless, the "do not target" prohibition applies to targeted online advertising, and untargeted sponsorship advertising during the transition period, due to it being an existing rule.

5. Advertising must not target:


  • Minors;
  • Young adults (individuals 18 up to and including 23 years of age);
  • Consumers demonstrating an affinity for high-risk gaming behaviour;
  • Consumers with an intellectual disability;
  • Consumers who are addicted to games of chance, or who have been addicted in the past;
  • Consumers who have excluded themselves from taking part in games of chance organized by the license holder.

6. Measures:


  • ✓ Advertising in its used design, language, products, persons must not appeal to vulnerable groups of persons.
  • ✓ Do not advertise (names, logos, names of games) through products that are worn or used to a considerable extent by minors.
  • ✓ Do not display sponsor messages in the line of sight of or at locations targeting minors and young adults (such as schools, universities, amusement parks, playgrounds, toy stores).
  • ✓ Do not display sponsor messages in the line of sight or at locations targeting remaining groups of vulnerable persons (such as hospitals and addiction care clinics).
  • ✓ Do not display sponsor messages in or around children programs or family programs.
  • ✓ Do not use individual professional sportspersons, a team comprising of professional sportspersons or other role models for advertising and recruitment purposes.
  • ✓ As an exception, sponsorship of individual professional sportspersons or a team comprising professional sportspersons is permitted [until 1 January 2025, contract must have been concluded before 1 July 2023].
  • ✓ Youth teams and minor and young adult professional athletes cannot be sponsored.
  • ✓ Do not use comic book figures, superheroes or other fictitious characters or figures which might be expected to appeal primarily to minors or young adults.
  • ✓Do not use people under the age of 25, or who look as if they are under the age of 25 in advertisements.


To this end, the Affiliate shall :

  • ensure that recruitment or advertising activities will not reach vulnerable persons or persons under the age of 24 on the Brands website. Vulnerable persons are defined as persons who engage in risky gaming behavior;
  • and ii) warrant and be able to demonstrate, at the first request of LP, that the Affiliate is using best available techniques, that at least 95% of the Brands website visitors reached by any recruitment or advertising activity had reached the age of 24.

Bonuses


1. Bonuses are permitted and seen as a form of advertising; thus, all advertising rules apply to bonuses as well.

  • ✓  Players must be informed in an appropriate, clear, and comprehensible manner of the bonus, conditions for provision of the bonus and payment of winnings.
  • ✓ An opt-out of bonuses must be always offered.
  • ✓ On the webpage where the bonus can be accepted, the conditions, including essential conditions, must be given.
  • ✓ A first-time deposit bonus and a deposit bonus when a player returns after a period of six months is subject to limitations. The maximum bonus amount is:

    • If the first deposit is lower than €250 but €50 or more: 100% of first deposit.
    • If the first deposit is lower than €50: maximum €50
    • In any other event, the bonus may not exceed €250.

Bonuses may not:


  • Be targeted/offered to vulnerable groups of persons (including minors and young adults).
  • Be offered during a player’s participation in a game of chance (the period between a bet and the outcome of the bet is not considered as being during participation in a game of chance; bonuses may be offered in this period).
  • Be tailored to a player’s individual gambling behaviour.
  • Be granted if the player has not explicitly accepted the bonus conditions.
  • Be offered if the player has opted-out of such bonus offers.
  • Be offered when the player is subject to a bonus cooldown period (varying between 30 days and 12 months, depending on the reason for the cooldown period).
  • Be used if the contents and conditions of the bonus do not correspond with the presentation of the bonus.
  • Bonus offers must not expire within 24 hours as this leads to impulsive decisions (more than three days between offer and acceptance in any event does not lead to impulsive decisions. Any interim period will involve a case-by-case assessment).
