The Gambling Commission Launches a Strategy to Control Online Gambling
Gambling sites have been online for years now, but many of the newer sites have not received much attention. The gaming industry is a billion dollar industry, and there are literally thousands of online gambling sites to choose from. Before deciding on an online gambling site to sign up with, it is important to consider what you hope to get out of it. Will you spend your free time at the site, or do you want to make some quick money? Each of these choices is important to consider before choosing a site to join.
There is no real way to determine how many gambling operations actually exist in the UK, though it seems as if the problem of illegal gambling in the UK is getting worse. Many operators have recently been caught out running illegitimate gambling operations in the UK. For example, one of the new operators was recently found to be running gambling operations out of a warehouse in northern Spain, which has since been destroyed. The operators had been seen placing wagers in the warehouse and later leaving the building to use another address. This comes as little surprise with the increasing problem of people travelling to Spain to gamble.
One of the more high profile sites to find rogue operators in the UK is the VIP casino site, Ultimate Bet. This site had recently been brought up for sale by a Chinese firm. At the time, the site was promoted as a Chinese solution to the UK’s problem gambling problem. There have since been several reports of people being found dead in the arms of UK gambling establishments. This raises questions about the safety of gambling online in the UK.
The main article in this series looks at the problem of online gambling in the UK, including how it came to be regulated and why we need a central register of licensed gambling operators in the UK. I will then explain why we should have a central register of licensed gambling operators so that users can go through the registers and identify those that they think are acting dishonestly. After that, I’ll explain why we need these registers to regulate online gambling. Finally, I’ll explain why I am in favor of introducing such a regulation.
Online gambling has been in the news a lot recently, largely due to the Gambling Commission proposals. The Gambling Commission wants to have a central register of gambling operators, similar to the way that we have the way of registering land and house properties. The Gambling Commission proposes to allow people to register with lotteries if they want to bet on a lot of different games. Such a policy would make sense because not everybody is willing to place their money in a gambling bank, especially if there is very little profit potential.
So, why is the Gambling Commission thinking of introducing a registry of gambling sites? The main reason is to address a relatively serious problem. We know that there are a lot of rogue gambling websites out there, where the users are given false incentives and the information they provide is often useless. This is something that the main article focuses on, the introduction of in-play gambling as a regulated activity.
The Gambling Commission identifies that the main problem with online gambling is money laundering. That’s why they are trying to introduce a policy whereby users are forced to register with a licensed gambling operator to play on the site. If they don’t comply, then they face a penalty. This is the Gambling Commission’s way of ensuring that the problem of money laundering is addressed and controlled.
The second issue that the Gambling Commission is looking at is the ‘problem gambling’ that is taking place on the Internet. This refers to any activity that is taking place using means that cannot be traced back to the person who is running it. For example, IP changing or remote gambling. This is a term that encompasses all activities involving electronic gambling and people need to be educated about it if they are going to be able to access online gaming. There have already been some instances where online gaming sites have been prosecuted for not being able to trace the identity of a user.
