As before, site keeps jumping to adverts, ones for William Hill betting rather than gaming apps. On an I Phone 4S.

they are aware of the issue and there is a fix in the pipeline but it takes a few days for apple to implement the changes

As it seems to be a struggle for the tech team (sic) to sort this I have researched it myself and found there is a way to stop it on an iPhone:

Open Settings > Safari > JavaScript = off

No more William Hill popups and an added bonus is the site runs faster as its not loading up endless adverts and spam.

Thanks. As mine is a works phone will that affect any email or other "non-personnal" settings?

The only effect I've seen is you can't scroll photos on browser based eBay as normal and some websites that have a comments section (news sites) won't work but then I just turn JavaScript back on and remember to switch it off when I come here!

Email and all that still works, unless you're using a browser based email client? Again just switch it back on. It's not a complete solution but it stops the App Store being opened by adverts on here.

Thanks for letting us know about the issue. I will report this to our Ad team to look into so they can block the ads from the app.

The adverts rotate. It's only (currently) the William Hill advert that forces the App Store. If you come to the site when that ad is not loaded then it will work as normal.

I don't know the frequency of ad rotation but I'd guess 30 minutes to 1 hour?
