Not sure why, as long as they aren't using them in adverts they shouldn't be affected.

From the link:

"This means that, in addition to things like paid-for ads in third party space and e-mail/direct marketing, images and text on a gambling operator’s own website (or social media) that are ‘directly connected’ to their gambling products or other services will be considered ‘ads’ by the ASA. This includes game thumbnails, screenshots and logos as well as the names and descriptions of games".

Game launch buttons and anything on the site is considered as advertising the game so is included.

'This includes content created by affiliates because this is equally covered by the CAP Code and gambling operators are held, at least jointly, responsible for the content created by their affiliates.' taken from ASA site

EDIT -

This is the letter sent to all sites -

I take that to mean adverts on site rather than the actual link to a game. Maybe Dan or one of the reps could clarify exactly what it means :)

Regardless all they have to do is remove the game from being able to be seen when not logged in rather than remove them altogether :)

One would assume that would be enough...Certainly hope so, because a lot of people will have to say goodbye to a lot of cool games with silly, 'childish' or cartoon themes..

I love those, so i would be one of the victims :mad:
I also assume Quber would be victimised here..if his avatar of choice is an indicator! :p

Not just advertss "images and text on a gambling operator’s own website (or social media) that are ‘directly connected’ to their gambling products or other services will be considered ‘ads’ by the ASA"

Logging in itself isn't deemed sufficient, apparently you have to be age verified before seeing them

"What do we mean by ‘freely accessible’?

Ads are ‘freely accessible’ if they can be viewed by an audience that does not effectively exclude under-18s. On a marketer’s own website, this means that if someone can view the advertising content without having to log in and verify their identity, it is likely to be considered ‘freely accessible’. As best practice, we would recommend entering credit card details as likely to be a sufficiently robust age verification check method.

Without these checks, children and young people could potentially view the ad because there is nothing to prevent them from doing so. Simply ticking a box stating you are 18+ is unlikely to be considered sufficient to exclude under-18s from the audience and so where this method is used to restrict the audience, the ads are likely to still be considered ‘freely accessible’
.


The reason they keep calling them 'ADS' is because they only have jurisdiction over ads, i believe, so they call everything an ad to allow them to control it all.

Link again so you don't have to go back to it

I read about the term coming to effect but I didn't know it would cause the Casinos to remove these. I can understand the explanation, you can easily find the Red Riding Hood slot game thumbnail by searching Red Riding Hood game in google. I guess these Casinos have already sent requests to have childish game thumbnails changed to bypass this new requirement.

I, for one, welcome less childish themed games, I think variety is the spice of life, so it's good to keep some but in the last 2 years it has really gotten overboard, that Hugo game, most of Netent latest releases
