Approving operators to advertise gambling on Facebook

Before advertising real money gaming on our platforms, operators must apply for written permission.

Our strict approval process includes:

Legal review
Operators are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

License Submission
Operators must submit copies of relevant, government approved licenses.

Operators must sign up to additional commitments, over and above our standard terms.

Operators may only target people over 18. If age restrictions are higher in targeted territories, advertisers must comply. Approved operators must only target territories they are approved to target.

Please review our gambling ads policy (opens in new tab) for more information.

Please note that in the UK, the operator is considered to be the license holder.
