Asa Sanctions Another Coral Interactive Promo

By Brian Cullingworth, Last updated Sep 16, 2016

Outdated promotion distributed in error

Coral Interactive advertising was the subject of scrutiny again by the UK Advertising Standards Authority, the fourth time in the past fortnight.
The ad in question was an email offering new customers a GBP 20 free bet on placing their first GBP 5 sports bet. Terms and conditions stated that the bet had to be placed within 14-days of account registration to qualify for the GBP 20 free bet offer.
A single complainant on placing the bet was informed that the promotion had ended and challenged whether it had been conducted fairly.
Coral apologised, saying the promotion in question had run prior to the Grand National and had been replaced with a new promotion. The erroneous distribution of the outdated promotion was due to an oversight by its third-party email provider.
The ASA told Coral Interactive to ensure that they did not circulate outdated promotions to avoid causing players unnecessary disappointment.

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
