Hi there,

 

We are trying to get launch some campaigns through adwords for specific countries however we were not able to find out what exactly we should do.

 

Basically our target markets here state we need to have a state license : https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/6018017?hl=en

We own a license (malta gaming authority) which allows us to operate there although it`s not exactly a state license, maybe someone ca clarify on this?

 

Target countries are not listed here as well : https://support.google.com/adwords/troubleshooter/2893932?hl=en&rd=1 so we cannot apply directly

 

Being located in Malta means we don`t get phone support 

Cheers

I don't see Malta in the list of countries with specific requirements, Hence, promoting gambling in Malta is not allowed.

Hi, thanks for your quick reply

 

I wasn`t meant to target Malta although it is legal for those who own the license

 

My situation is that we own the "maltese gaming license" so are allowed to target/operate in countries in europe where a local legislation is not in place

Is google working within the legal framework on this regard?

If there is no local legislation - gambling promotion is not allowed.

If there is a local legislation you must be certified only by the certification body within the country. No other certification is acceptable
