NFL lifts ban on casino ads

The SportsXchange

The NFL has lifted a ban on teams accepting casino ads through at least the next two season, according to the SportsBusiness Journal.

Restrictions include that casinos advertising cannot have a sports book and must contribute five percent of the value of the ad deal to the NFL's anti-gambling program for its employees. And limiting ads to upper bowls and concourses is intended to keep them out of the view of most television cameras.
