CC | British footballers are not allowed to advertise Curaçao gambling sites

Punt Casino wordt geopereerd door Effice Group N.V. en gelicentieerd door Gaming Services Provider

WILLEMSTAD – British football players are not allowed to advertise Curaçao gambling sites. This has been determined by the British Advertising Standards Authority, ASA. Renowned footballer Michael Owen used his Twitter account on May 16 to promote an illegal crypto casino to the British public. This is against UK gambling advertising laws.

Only licensed casinos are allowed to advertise in the UK. The British Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has reprimanded Owen for this.

He advertised Punt Casino, which operates under a license from Curaçao. But the company is not licensed in the UK. The ex-world football player has recently become an ambassador for Punt Casino. That site is no longer accessible to players from the United Kingdom.

Punt Casino informed the Dutch site casinonieuws.nl that it does not actively promote itself in countries where the gambling company is not licensed and states that it has a full license in Curaçao.

That is not true. Punt Casino operates under a controversial sublicense from one of the island’s five master licensees, Gaming Services Provider. According to Curaçao law, a gambling license cannot be transferred to third parties, but the Curaçao government does not enforce it.

Punt Casino is a so-called ‘Bitcoin Casino’, a casino where you can gamble with bitcoins or other cryptocurrencies. In the Netherlands, these types of casinos are illegal.
