As I reported minutes ago at Search Engine Land, Google UK will now be allowing the advertisement of gambling related products in AdWords.
In fact, if you take a look at the AdWords Gambling Policies you will notice, they amended the policy for the Great Britain (England, Scotland, and Wales) region. They have also added a form to legally be allowed to post gambling ads in the UK on Google.

This is absolutely massive news - I trust that some of the big US sites will write about this as, with the UK being Google's 2nd biggest market, this could do some very nice things to their share price.
I agree, the news that Google disallowed the play gambling ads was massive, but the news that gambling ads are now allows is even more massive.
