Clarification regarding the mobile gaming company Leovegas’ advertising

Under the headline “Listed gaming company advertising on porn and pirate sites”, DI sheds light on an actual problem in affiliate marketing where advertisements are improperly exposed in a context that without question is in violation of the advertiser’s intentions and rules. We welcome that this problem has been highlighted at the same time that important clarifications should be noted:
  • LeoVegas’ advertising material has been exposed on file sharing sites such as The Pirate Bay, in violation of our Terms & Conditions and rules. We take this with utmost seriousness and will intensify our actions against affiliates that violate the terms of our agreements and are emphasising greater control in several areas.
  • LeoVegas does not advertise on websites containing pornographic content. The article notes that other gaming companies are present in such environments and then uses the concept “porn and pirate sites” as a general angle, but it is important to note that LeoVegas does not advertise on sites containing pornographic content.
  • LeoVegas has zero tolerance for this, as it is in direct contradiction to LeoVegas’ values and what the company stands for.


The violations that are made against our advertising rules are acted upon as soon as they come to the company’s knowledge. 

Extract from LeoVegas’ Terms & Conditions for affiliates:
