Pokerstars rapped over irresponsible gambling advert

Manx egaming giant Pokerstars has been criticised by a UK regulator over a TV advert which promoted irresponsible gambling.

The on-air spot appeared in October 2017, and the Advertising Standards Authority said it suggested players could easily win a poker game by bluffing.

The ASA said the ad portrayed socially irresponsible gambling in breach of its regulatory code.

In its findings, the authority said the advert must not appear again - and it told the Onchan-based company to make sure future ads don't portray gambling in the context of recklessness.
