Google was fined 750,000 in Italy for advertising gambling

According to network sources, the Italian Communications Guarantee Authority, an industry regulator and competition agency, fined the American company Google about 750,000 for violating the ban on gambling advertising, as reported by Reuters.

According to available data, Google was fined for demonstrating on YouTube's prohibited gambling and cash gain advertising platform, and the regulator also fined Top Ads, which is the creator of advertising content that violates the laws in force in the country. Top Ads has been fined at least 700 thousand. Google officials have not yet commented on the matter.

Earlier this week, Google announced a number of changes to the current regulations of the Play Market site for application developers. Changes will soon come into effect to strengthen the fight against obsessive advertising in Android applications and clones of popular mobile products.
