The Ksa has summoned a license holder for the provision of online sports betting to stop advertising matches on eredivisie.nl while they are taking place. On eredivisie.nl, the licensee had allowed Holland casino to post odds during various football matches. Clicking on the quotes led the visitor to the website of the licensee. There they could place bets on those matches. The Ksa carried out an investigation this weekend following a complaint from a customer.
This way of advertising is prohibited. Licence holders are not allowed to advertise bets on sports matches immediately before, during or immediately after the match. So also not during the interval. This is to protect people who are watching the match or checking the results against impulsive participation in a bet.
