Can skill-based gaming services be advertised on GAO?

If your gaming service takes money bets or bids from players in order to provide prize/s to the winner/s, and the distribution of the prize/s depends purely on game skill of player/s involved and not in any way on chance or external factors, then your gaming service is purely skill-based and can be advertised on GAO.

If there’s chance or factors external to the game involved in distribution of prize/s accumulated from player bets or bids, then your gaming service is most likely classified as gambling and cannot be advertised on GAO.

Why does my advertiser balance drop slightly below 0?

As your account balance approaches zero, GAO will gradually reduce the frequency of your banners displaying on their respective web sites. Once your account balance reaches zero, no more of your ads will be served to site visitors. However, visitors who loaded the page with your advertisement on it before your balance hit zero may still click your ad. The cost of these valid clicks will be deducted and your account balance may go slightly below zero. This negative balance (typically less than 50 cents for small ad runs) will be taken out of your next payment.
