In April 2020, Google updated the Spanish country specifics of its Gambling and Games policy to reflect recent changes in Spanish law. As a result, we will be changing our policies to pause all gambling ads targeting Spain effective April 3rd. We will not be accepting any gambling ads targeting Spain until the Spanish government lifts its COVID-19-related measures.
