The Google Ads policy on casinos and gambling will change around mid-July 2012. The policy is changing to prohibit brick and mortar casinos in several counties. The change will affect China, Egypt, Estonia, India, Indonesia, Korea, Morocco, Northern Ireland, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, Ukraine, and Vietnam. We made this decision for legal reasons. We'll send notifications to affected advertisers. After the new policy goes into effect, the policy description will be updated to reflect this change.
