Find below a list of slots that got banned for being too child-friendly.

What Attracts Children to Slots?

In a nutshell, the aspect of slots that children find most appealing is the graphics and design. Children are drawn to cute fluffy animals and characters from their favorite bedtime stories. Unfortunately, these are also the types of images that online casinos use for slots.

While there are laws protecting kids from ads directed at them, you cannot stop websites from using these images. Or can you?

Child-Friendly Slots That Got Banned

Children nowadays are very good at technology. Most of them know how to do an internet search, which could expose them to online casino games.One example would be a child who does a Google search for Jack and the Beanstalk. This seems like an innocent enough request, but there are so many online slots with similar themes and who use these popular fairytale images. The child could think that the free version is just a game and start spinning, not knowing that this is actually gambling. Children could thus unintentionally playing online slots.
