AGCO bans athletes from Ontario igaming advertising
The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) has updated the Registrar’s Standards for Internet Gaming to prohibit the use of athletes in igaming advertising and marketing in the province. It has also restricted the use of celebrities who would be expected to appeal to minors. These new restrictions will come into effect on February 28, 2024.
Following the first year of Ontario’s regulated igaming market, the AGCO identified advertising and marketing approaches that use athletes and celebrities with an appeal to minors as a potential harm to those under the legal gaming age.
