Facebook will not whitelist any client for gambling related content

Twitter will also not approve any client for gambling related content


Facebook must first whitelist a client before you can advertise in the UK

“Ads and Pages may not promote online gambling, games of skill or lotteries without prior authorization from Facebook.”

Twitter do allow some content but must pre approve and our experience is they are more stringent than Facebook.

In certain cases listed below, advertisers are only permitted if they have prior authorization from Twitter. Authorization starts with being in touch with a Twitter account team. Instructions for contacting Twitter are included in each case.”
