Pop ups

Hi guys, I'm suddenly getting pop ups (congratulations you have won an iPad!) when on bettafish.com
Is there anyone else with problems, and can I fix it?

I use firefox on my PC and amazon silk on my kindle. I get virus pop-ups on both. I don't have this problem on any other forums or websites I visit.

I also get these. One is an "Urgent Chrome Update" that looks like something from Google, but actually has a different web address. Sometimes I get a pop-up on my phone that says I won a $1,000 gift card, but the "Visa" one is "out of stock" and when you click on the Amazon one it says "Sorry, this item is also out of stock."

Also, the gift card one has comments that the date changes, but none new are ever added and they never change otherwise. I'm using Chrome also.

ETA: Also, I have Kaspersky AntiVirus, though it ran out and I started getting those. Now that I have it again, they still pop-up.

The Males~
Leviathan, Zephyr, Creamsicle, Hades, Helios, & Sonic
SIP Kamikaze, the first Import.

The Females~
Yasei, Freedom II, Kettei, Kitti, Kestrel, & Karma (+2 incoming imports)

That's maybe some/most mobile apps dont have pop up blockers like desktop do. Although it can still get away with desktop popup blockers as it cant block them all.

I used to get these all the time, even with popup blockers but now they only happen occasionally. Now my problem is that when I'm on this site on my phone I get error messages when trying to leave and go to a new website. I have to enter the new website multiple times before it will let me leave.
