All of the applications for .casino were issued a GAC Early Warning from the representative of Australia and GAC Chair, Heather Dryden. The warning system is noted as a strong recommendation on behalf of national governments to the ICANN Board that a given TLD application should be denied as it stands. Applicants are encouraged to work with objecting GAC members. One such warning, for Donuts' application, notes that the string is associated with a regulated market sector and that there are not currently sufficient protection mechanisms in place to prevent consumer harm.
