Google Ads to allow ads for sport betting in New York

New York state will begin allowing mobile or online sports bets to be placed beginning Saturday, January 8, 2022. With that Google has updated its Google Ads gambling policy to allow ads for sports betting from certified and state-licensed entities in New York State. This was confirmed by the New York State Gaming Commission yesterday and it goes into effect tomorrow at 9am local time.

The announcement. Google posted the announcement saying “in January 2022, the Google Ads Gambling and games policy United States country-specifics will be updated. We will begin to accept and run ads for sports betting from certified, state-licensed entities in New York from January 8.”

Google added “aAdvertisers must apply for certification” and “application for certification will be open to advertisers who wish to promote online gambling content in this region on January 7, 2022.”

Google wont update the policy until tomorrow but it will be updated tomorrow. Google wrote “the Gambling and games policy page will be updated when the policy goes into effect.”

Why the change. The Supreme Court overturned the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, a 1992 federal law that restricted all but a handful of states from legalizing sports gambling.

Who is impacted. Well, you can expect gambling sites and apps from companies like Caesars Sportsbook, DraftKings, FanDuel, and Rush Street Interactive to jump at this.

Why we care. If you have clients or run ads for a company that does sports betting online, then you may want to look to expand your Google Ads for New Yorkers.

It’s so rare in these times to find one man with so much wow factor and more rare to find men with similar interest and passion in their life journey as myself . Dan Elliott has been introduced to many in what is now considered as the Terror Dome , a place where many dreams are not deferred they are detoured to routes that lead to dead ends , he comes in full of optimism so infectious that he, maybe with out knowing is energizing those who have ventured where others would fear going with just the right jolt to forge on in the way of helping fallen humanity … His various fields of expertise has helped many in my region and I can only imagine the number he has effected beyond those I know … from day one I knew “ this was a man of kindred spirit “ Dan Elliott is a Gem and adds glimmer to things he touches … I’m a Witness ….and eternally grateful….L.Rashaan RichMay 21, 2022

We'd used some other agencies before, but man, they simply knocked us all over. After being in business for 30 years, I wonder how much more business we'd be doing if we'd hired them earlier.Rebecca HoneaMay 17, 2019
