New video poker app, can not get approved

Hello,

We are trying to run a new search campaign on Adwords,
our product deals with zynga poker but it is not a casino or any casino aggregater.
We  do not sell or publish gambling.
that's our site:

 

http://www.hallofhands.com/


google wants us to fill in the gambling application form and for that we have to be listed in the targeted countries as gambling company which mean getting another license.

for some reason i think we do not need to go trough all of this... since we do not teach or sell gambling.

We just produce online video content of poker.

Does any one know how should we precede ?

Thanks, Ben

Hi Ben,

My understanding is that your website is a gambling-related product that you offer to users. It might be true that the list of gambling-related pruducts on the help page does not specifically mention your particular case, however, I think what the list includes are just examples, in other words I think that the list should not be regarded as exhaustive. 

 

Bottom line is I think Google is right and you should comply with country-specific stipulations.

 

Best,

Lakatos

Hi Ben,

 

Unfortunately that's probably not the kind of help you hoped for. Gambling application can be initiated at this URL:

 

http://support.google.com/adwords/bin/request.py?&contact_type=gambling

 

You're also advised to study thorougly the country-specific stipulation on the help page linked-to in my previous post.

 

Thank you for your kind understanding.

 

Best,

Lakatos

Ben,

 

Maybe you mean the gambling licenses issued by particular countries? Unfortunately I cannot comment on how to obtain them, you're suggested to seek legal advice from a local law practitioner.
