    The regulator said it had spotted customers showing signs of problem gambling, but that “this behaviour did not trigger a customer interaction” by the companies
    What the hypocritical double standards!


    How gambling industry is possible, without gambling addiction? Anybody explain me please. This is the same as pub without drunk people, love without woman e.t.c.

    It is only two options exist. 1.) Allow gambling 2.) Forbid gambling.


    If goverment allow gambling, this is mean that gambling tax is more important for state, than gambling addiction people. But if goverment is so holy, and want to take care about gambling addiction - no problem. Forbid gambling.


    But this hypocrites from UK Gambling Comission want to seat on two chairs at one time. They want to get they salary from gambling taxes, and be the holy people on one time.


    And we - operators and affiiliates - we are evil. We ruin lifes of pooer gambling addiction people. UK Gambling Commission is get they salary from the same source, but they are holy.




    The true is: No Gamblling Addiction = No Gambling Industry = No Gambling Comission = Sarah Harrison don't have good job and salary.

    It would be way more effective if they just revoke dozens of license and keep 40 or 50 brands. That's enough. I've just read the letter that UKGC has sent to casinos.

    Regulation is definitely the end for smaller brands unless they move to some white label platform. Better for the player? I doubt. A lot of white labels are poor quality. But also a lot of PLC are looking more into numbers instead of servicing players.

    My bet on the five would be the well known brands from the high street rather than any of the sponsors here. Without naming names, since they shipped support off overseas, customer service has declined to a level where it wouldnt surprise me they don't give a **** about RG.

    Interesting read and i am so glad That VS have people that actuality realize whats needed we have recently been Provided Training on AML , RG and a few other training programs to enlighten us about whats is required and standards we need to set .The Unusual thing and one that I found to be really great was that everyone all 130 + Staff were Trained from our Office Manager and Reception lady to our CEO and Management teams went through these training days even though most of them were not customer focused it was seen as a must do as VS wants everyone on the same page. I feel better for it and hopefully the things i have learnt will aid me

    Yeah I mean, it is what it is, but they have to do their song and dance so that they look like they can do no wrong, etc.

    Yeah, that's correct. Just do a search on Google and type AML acronym.

    Unhappy Exactly, regulation in gambling must respect the human rights!

    Moonlight Cat, who are you? This is, exactly, the way I think. Even more- why all this regulation is needed? We are all free people, so if I want to gamble, I'll gamble, if I want to drink, I will drink, and no one should take me this right! All those licenses are just a way to collect money from businesses, masked with the excuses that governments try to be "responsible"! WTF! Let's say, alcohol is sold in any corner everywhere around the world, but is considered less harming than gambling and adult industry. If someone is addicted to gambling it should be his own problem, and visit a psychologist to heal. From the other hand, this same governments approve the transgenders, and even stimulate them to change genders, as it's again a psychological problem. What is right, and what is wrong? You know want, doesn't matter what is right, as long as someone is getting well paid! It is all unfair nowadays!
    About the opinion of the member that said, they should leave 40-50 gambling brands, I would say- Do you have any idea how hard is for the smaller gambling businesses to succeed? Do you realize, that without having at least a million to invest in the first year, you'll be dead on the market? Even if you work from morning till night, doesn't matter, because if you don't have enough money to invest, the system will smash your gambling business. Also, do you think that those 40-50 are very good operators? If you read their T&Cs for promotions, aff programs etc., you will soon realize that most of them are trying to fool, and their customers, and their affiliates. Newer companies should be given a chance to survive, in my opinion. Governments, from the other hand, must not treat us as evil, they should allow us to do what we do best, without all those masking licenses, and should find a way to educate and help the addicted gamblers. But...whatever..people's greed and double standards will never change..

    I agree with sianev. I can understand how hard it is establishing yourself in the market for startup companies. We can't blame the norms but should be open eyed what is happening in the gambling industry what is needed to be improved. What I would say respect the humanity.
