The UK government has just introduced new UK gambling laws, which were earlier ignored by the authorities. This is the first step to amend the law books and get rid of the existing anomalies in the UK gambling law that has kept many businessmen from participating in the gambling industry in UK.
Revised Gambling Law
There are many issues with the law in UK such as there are many exemptions and special rules for online gambling, some of which have not been made compulsory for offline gambling. There are also several myths about why and how casinos need to be regulated and licensed.
One of the other points of contention when it comes to online gambling in the UK includes the minimum age for gambling to be implemented. The government has placed a five-year restriction on the age limit, which is one of the biggest debates surrounding the new UK gambling rules. Some people believe that the amount of time that is spent in front of a computer affects the amount of time that can be spent gambling.
New Changes 2021
There are other regulations included in the New UK gambling laws. These include a ban on advertising by gambling operators. It has also been made mandatory for all operators to have proper gaming training and knowledge.
This also includes proper identification and the right to privacy of all players at the table. In addition, all gambling operators are required to maintain strict records of every player they have invited to their establishment including their registration details. This is to ensure that no person below the age of 18 plays any game at any such establishment.
