All forms of online gambling and gambling will be legal in the UK as of January 2017. The Games Committee is responsible for land regulation and online gambling in the UK. In this regard, all UK casinos, sports betting or other types of betting, brick and mortar suppliers, as well as online, are authorized and regulated by the Gaming Commission.
The first form of gambling to be regulated was the lottery, which was launched in the mid-1930s after World War II, the country’s interest in gambling has increased dramatically, but only the industry is properly adjusted. In the early sixties, it was: regulation and taxation of stationary gambling casinos. Initially, only small slots were allowed with different slot machines, but the new rules under the Gaming Act of 2005 paved the way for large casinos.
Today, the gaming industry in the UK is huge. Bingo is very popular and the bingo halls can be found in smaller spaces. In addition, most of the bars have at least one slot machine.
The UK is also an access point for online gambling of all kinds. And it’s not only popular among residents, but it’s also made easier because there is nothing in legislation that makes it illegal or attempts to prevent British residents from playing online at home. The UK Gaming Commission grants licenses to companies wishing to set up online gambling sites to work in the UK and serve customers in other parts of the world.
The acquisition of 15% of the Gross Gross Gaming tax allowed several companies to acquire licenses elsewhere. Some of the largest online gambling groups in the UK have shifted offshore offices where taxes are lower. But the new law, which came into effect on November 1, 2014, made it impossible for game operators to get away with that little trick. As of this date, all companies wishing to visit the UK market must obtain a license from the UK Gambling Commission.
