Britská komisia pre hazardné hry podrobne opisuje tretiu konzultáciu o bielej knihe pre prevádzkovateľov na pevnine

By - 14. mája 2024

The British Gambling Commission is to separate legislation for online gaming and land-based venues with a third White Paper consultation focussing solely on bricks and mortar gambling.

Talking at the Bingo Association AGM,  Andrew Rhodes, Chief Executive of the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC), said that following the third consultation phase, legislation will be enacted swiftly.

Mr Rhodes said: “Originally we included land-based and lotteries sectors in these changes. But we had significant and persuasive responses through the consultation from these sectors regarding why the changes would not have been the right action at this time. Given the complexities faced by such operators and our focus on the remote gambling marketing, we have therefore decided we will not include land-based gambling and the lottery sectors in scope of this requirement. This requirement – applying to online gambling only – will come into force on 17 January 2025.

“Next, we will introduce new rules which mean all gambling land-based licensees, including smaller licensees, must carry out age verification test purchasing. It will also change the good practice code to say licensees should have procedures that require their staff to check the age of any customer who appears to be under 25 years of age, rather than under 21 years of age. These new elements of the Licence Conditions and Codes of Practice (LCCP) will come into effect on 30 August 2024.

“Whilst many of you have online facing parts of your business as well, for those of you who are primarily or exclusively offering bingo in brick-and-mortar clubs up and down the country, the responses that you should pay most attention to are probably the tightening of age verification, the extension of roles needing personal management licences and changes to direct marketing.”

“And on Personal Management Licenses, following on from the consultation, the Commission has clarified and extended the operator staff management roles expected to hold a personal management licence. These new and amended provisions come into force on 30 November 2024.”
