Complying with the law for gaming advertising - video transcript
Watch the Follow the law campaign - responsible service of gambling - advertising compliance video to understand more about gaming-related advertising.
Kev appears on screen. He's sporting a wicked comb-over and rocking the sandals and socks with shorts look. He's standing outside his club that features a 'open' and 'bar' neon signs on the wall.
This is Kev. He manages this club and considers himself a bit of an ad man.
A new sign appears in a smoke cloud. It reads 'Pokies. Everyone's a winner, baby!'
This one's sure to pull the crowds.
Ah, that's false and misleading and could be seen as encouraging the misuse of pokies.
Kev's face drops. A new sign appears on the wall. It reads 'Invest in pokies. Safer than houses.'
How could you miss this one?
Ah, that's not a reasonable statement.
Another sign appears, reading 'Beer. Nudes. Gambling. You can't lose!'
Nope! That's not true.
Kev looks downcast.
Alright, here it is.
The last new sign appears on the wall. It reads '$50 000 in wins paid this week! $$$'.
Sorry Kev, in Queensland venues can only advertise externally if they comply with section 229 of the Gaming Machine Act 1991, and Practice 6 of the responsible gambling code of practice.
Kev puts up a compliant sign. It reads 'Food. Live bands. Keno.'
