Adsense subdomain question

I have a gambling related site and therefore can't put adsense on my site. However, I have put a free flash arcade site on a subdomain of the site. Can I put adsense ads on that section of the site?

Thanks

As far as I understand the Google TOS, as long as you don't put Adsense code on a specific page, Google doesn't care what else you do with that specific page. So if you have http.hot-ladies-do-this-and-that.example.com with content matching the url but without Adsense code, it is ok to have http:all-about-the-feeding-procedure-of-the-west-african-parrot.example.com with content matching the url and with Adsense code. Sorry for the silly examples but I think you get the point.

However, I can't predict if G will be OK with your flash arcade site. G is very alert on copyright issues (concerning flash games and stuff).

The TOS wording is "Site may not include: ... Gambling or casino-related content." Whether a subdomain is considered part of a "site" is hard to say.

My guess is that Google would say it's not allowed, especially if there's any cross-linking and shared traffic between the sites. Gambling sites are getting a lot of heat these days.

P.S. It should go without saying that we can't speak for Google on this matter. You should ask them if you think there's any question.

Site may not include

Sorry, Jomaxx is right about this.
I was a bit confused because the Adsense T&C state

You shall not (...) display any Ad (...)
on any Web page or any Web site that contains any pornographic, hate-related, violent, or illegal content (...)

I don't understand wy both "Web page" and "Web site" are mentioned. I also think it is strange they don't mention the gambling part here.
However, Jomaxx is right, no gambling on your "site". But the question Jomaxx raises is also very interesting: what is considered a "site"?
