Football legend Michael Owen accused of promoting unlicensed crypto casino in the UK

Michael Owen is accused of promoting an unregistered crypto casino in the UK. He has been asked to delete the tweet from all social media platforms. Punt Casino is a fully licensed Curacao casino operating under the rules and regulations associated with that license. The ASA has successfully settled the case. Last month, Owen attracted a similar controversy after he promoted an NFT project. The footballer has had problems with regulators over his sponsorship deals. It is illegal to promote a gambling platform without a license from the Gambling Commission. Bookmakers targeting UK customers do not work with crypto because the practice carries significant risks of money laundering and illegal activity.
