Sports betting ads in the AG spotlight
Earlier on Thursday, the MGC heard from the State Attorney General’s Office about the risks of sports betting advertising.
The AG’s office made five points to the MGC in a nine-page letter:
- The Commission’s regulation of mobile sports betting should complement the consumer protections provided in other state and federal laws that gaming operators and their vendors must comply with, as must all businesses in the state.
- It cannot target sports betting marketing or promotion to under-21s and the Commission’s regulation should be strengthened to achieve this important objective.
- In order to avoid those who suffer or are believed to be at risk of gambling addiction being repeatedly invited to bet, the Commission should scrutinize the design of applications to prevent addictive elements and severely limit the ability of gambling operators and their marketing partners to to target vulnerable populations. online advertising or communication.
- The Commission should strictly limit – and in certain circumstances outright prohibit – the potentially misleading use of paid “experts” or “insiders” by operators and promotions that distort the gaming experience and its risks and benefits.
- The Commission should require gambling operators to use their extensive data on customer behavior to identify and intervene with problem gamblers to refer them to appropriate support and assistance.
FanDuel MA ads pulled
Based on PlayMAthree FanDuel ads potentially violated Massachusetts advertising regulations.
Heather Hall, MGC’s chief enforcement counsel, said a pair of ads referring to “iGaming” and “free bets” had been pulled. Online casino games are not legal in Massachusetts, which also disallows the term free bets.
Another ad referring to credit cards and prepaid cards is being pulled. Massachusetts prohibits the use of credit cards to finance bills.
“We’ve been in communication with FanDuel,” Hall said PlayMA. “They were very responsive to our inquiries.”
THE Investigation and Enforcement Office looks into it.
