    Hi to all!
    I was thinking to allow Gambling & Betting and Alcohol ads on my youtube channel to rise the competitions between ads, but i don't know if this can cause me some troubles, can you tell me your experience if you have done this? Which are the risks? i risk the ban from youtube or adsense?

    Adsense gives you the option to allow some restricted content now, I'm actually kind of wondering the same thing as OP as my content isn't geared at children specifically but I don't know if it's worth the risk to get the 15-20% increase they are suggesting.

    I read that ads are automatically blocked for who connects from a country in which they are not allowed, but how and who decide if your contents are for children? for example videogames are for all, but someone can say that they are for children...
    Maybe you have to consider your Demographics and control if the best part of your audience are +18? but even if they are you can receive minors visitors anyway...
    As usual adsense is not very clear about what you have to do to stay safe :/
    We need someone that tried this and want to share his experience, personally i would like to avoid to do an "experiment" by allowing those ads and receive an instant ban xD
    Maybe if you allow those ads all your video will become for adults? i mean they will require an account belonging to a +18 user to be seen... dont know.

    No xD it's an option that you can choose in your adsense account
