UK – United Kingdom Gambling Guide

 

This webpage focuses on the situation of gambling (this includes the main forms of gambling: poker, bingo, betting, casino gambling, lottery type games of chance) and online gambling (UPDATE 2020: added bitcoin gambling as well). Sadly, there is no completely unified gambling regulation for the whole of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Therefore, we have to discuss the legal status of games of chance and internet betting separately in Great Britain (England + Wales + Scotland) and Northern Ireland, and in the three British Crown Dependencies.

UPDATE 2021: Even though the UK is leaving the EU since 2016, it had, so far, very little actual effect on the gambling legislation and regulation of the UK, despite all the rumors, news to the contrary. However, in December 2020, Nigel Huddleston MP finally announced ‘a call for evidence’ to begin the Gambling Act review. Therefore, the current situation, the current status quo (see below), the current defining gambling legislation, the 2005 Gaming Act* won’t likely change in any meaningful way for the next few years (based on the usual speed of the British bureaucracy).

 

Gambling and online gambling are both legal in the UK, all parts of it, and the crown dependencies, but it’s not equally well regulated in all of them. The three main forms of recognized gambling in the main gambling legislation are: gaming (e.g.: casino gambling), betting (e.g.: sports betting) and lottery (e.g: bingo, keno and other lottery type games as well). Here is a short summary: 

 

Great Britain (England + Wales + Scotland, does not include Northern Ireland) – gambling and online gambling are legal and well regulated, license required

Online gambling laws in Great Britain went through a thorough overhaul in 2014 with the enactment of the “Gambling (Licensing & Advertising) Bill**”,which was signed into law July 2014. The bill introduced new standards, that all kinds of online gambling operators are to be held to in the UK. This regulated the online gambling market, and opened it up for foreign investors, and made it complaint with EU laws.

 

Northern Ireland – gambling and online gambling are both legal, license required, however, online gambling is barely regulated, outdated legislation

The whole system is outdated, online gambling is not mentioned at all. Northern Ireland’s Betting, Gaming, Lotteries & Amusements Order is from 1985***  (and it itself is based on a much older piece of legislation from the UK, the Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Act 1963) and hasn’t been updated since. It’s based on the UK system, just worse, licenses are required, they probably eventually just adopt the UK system with small changes (the UK system is pretty good, very strict, pro player). There are rumors about changes to the current system, practically every year, but nothing happened so far.

 

UPDATE: Crown dependencies now have their own separate pages, you can find these at: Gambling in the Isle of Man, Gambling in the Bailiwick of Guernsey and Jersey, it was too long and complicated to have everything on the same page. I moved them to their own pages, especially considering that both have their own gambling legislations, and both are online gambling hubs with hundreds of online casinos registered there, one of the biggest offshore online gambling centers of the world. They deserve their own separate pages. But in short: both gambling and online gambling are legal in the British crown dependencies, with the proper licenses. They are on the UK gambling whitelist, and therefore online gambling licenses from these locations are vey much in demand (and they are very selective, to not to rouse the ire of the UK government, they are basically offshore tax havens made somewhat more respectable through their association with the UK).

Legal gambling age: The legal gambling age is 18 in the UK (applies to online gambling as well). The only exception is the lottery which is 16+.

 

Online gambling UK: Great Britain (England + Wales + Scotland)

The piece of legislation formerly regulating online gambling in Great Britain was the 2005 Gaming Act, which allowed foreign online gambling operators in the country without imposing taxes on them or requiring them to hold a UK license. There was in fact no licensing procedure or a regulatory body in place. For the operators, this was a golden age, and it made many online gambling companies very rich (and the government missed out on a lot of taxes, because they were all registered and based in offshore tax havens, it might appear very dumb that they allowed this for so long, but the truth is, their hands were tied, because of the EU they couldn’t prosecute the illegally operating companies, block them, or prosecute the players, until a local licensing procedure, licensing system was in place).

The online gambling operators, which were legally allowed to offer and advertise their services to UK players (after acquiring a UK gambling license) were listed and licensed in the so called ‘whitelisted’ jurisdictions (Gibraltar, Alderney, the Isle of Mann or Antigua and Barbuda), or in one of the countries of the European Economic Area (EEA).

The bottom line is, when it came to online gambling, UK laws used to be quite “liberal” (pro operator, as opposed to now, they are pro player).
However, it all changed last year and the reason for the enactment of the new regulations, apart from increasing tax revenues from the blossoming UK online gambling industry was the need for strict governmental control over operators, and because of a rise in problem gambling connected to online gambling websites.

The major changes in the regulation and taxation of online gambling platforms seeking to offer their services to UK players:

 

During the parliamentary debates leading up to the enactment of the Gambling (Licensing & Advertising) Bill, the Gambling Commission proposed a possible amendment, that would’ve granted the right to the Commission to order financial providers to block transactions to and from unlicensed online gambling sites. Even though the House of Lords voted against the amendment, some of the major financial corporations, including Visa, MasterCard and Paypal signed agreements with the Commission to voluntarily block the transactions in question****.

The Commission also approached ISPs to block the online gambling sites unlicensed in the UK, but lacking the proper court orders or enacted legislations to refer to, they were turned down by all of them*****. UPDATE: Since then, ISPs started blocking unlicensed online gambling websites.

It’s illegal for players from the UK to register on unlicensed sites, although players are actually not prosecuted. However, it’s still illegal and we don’t recommend it. Unlicensed operators are also not allowed to advertise their services neither online nor offline, this in addition to ISP block, therefore you are not likely you will even encounter them online at this point.

The most important reason why you should avoid these unlicensed, illegally operating, tax evading online gambling websites is that if there is a problem (casino does not pay you your winnings, credit card fraud, stealing personal information etc…) you don’t have the UK Gambling Commission to turn to. As a matter of fact, you have no one to turn to for help if you play in an unlicensed casino (police won’t be able to help, your bank also won’t refund the money, lawyers are powerless too they are outside of UK jurisdiction), because citizens of the United Kingdom are only supposed to play in licensed online casinos, and they will refuse to help you. Avoid unlicensed online casinos, there are often issues with them, and they re often making headlines, for the wrong reasons….

Post-brexit gambling and online gambling in the UK:

The people in the United Kingdom decided to leave the EU in June 2016 (good choice btw. I’m surprised, the 1% is well and truly established on your island, + the big cities are full of libtards and migrants, no idea how you manged to pull this off, but you just saved yourself from the new world order controlled by the 1% types and the deep state, respect). This will have an effect on the gambling and online gambling scene of the whole EU. The gambling license whitelist of the UK Gambling Commission was seen as the list of the most trusted gambling licenses in the world (still is, at lest at the time of writing). Other countries copied the UK system and the UK was one of the few EU countries that fully liberalized its online gambling market, in accordance with EU directives. However, post-brexit, Scotland and North Ireland will likely try to secede and remain part of the E, and Spain is trying to get closer to annexing Gibraltar (a famous online gambling hub, gambling licenses from Gibraltar are on the whitelist of the UK Gambling Commission, hundreds of online gambling websites are registered there, it’s powerhouse of the online gambling world). If these countries do secede from Britain they have to develop their own gambling laws. It is not yet clear how the Brexit will affect existing UK gambling laws, but the following changes are expected in the next few years:

 

I expect that many online gambling operators will leave the UK market in the coming years. You can find the list of online gambling websites, which currently accept players from the UK below. All UK licensed online casinos accept players from Great Britain (England, Wales, Scotland), and Northern Ireland (but they do not automatically accept players the British Crown Dependencies), because (details are below), the UK Gambling Commission issues the online gambling licenses, and they are valid for the entirety of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (sans Crown Dependencies).

 

Gambling, Online Gambling – UK: Northern Ireland

In Northern Ireland, gambling (other than the National Lottery) is regulated under the The Betting, Gaming, Lotteries and Amusements (Northern Ireland) Order 1985. The 1985 Order is modelled on much older GB law from the 60s which was repealed and replaced by the Gambling Act 2005 in the UK, but not in NI.

The 1985 Order regulates betting on tracks and in bookmaking offices; gaming, including the use, supply and maintenance of gaming machines, small scale amusements with prizes and gaming in bingo clubs; and local lotteries (no mention of casinos or online gambling). These are the only types of gambling activities that are legal and licensable currently in Northern Ireland.

Online gambling companies in Northern Ireland get licenses from the UK Gambling Commission of Great Britain.

 

UK – Great Britain gambling licenses

The gambling Commission of Great Britain (which is a misnomer, because even gambling establishments from Northern Ireland have to get an operating licence from them) is responsible for operating licences all throughout the UK, and also for licensing of online gambling operations.  The procedure is as follows:

1., A gambling, or online gambling company within the UK  must acquire a operational license from the Commission of Great Britain,

2., Physical, land-based gambling establishments need to acquire a local permit to set up their gambling establishments (it’s not easy to get, most brick&mortar gambling establishments, even smaller ones are inherited, stay within the same dynasty, ‘old money’ family, or bought and sold with the company in possession of the license, as a package deal, local governments are not keen on issuing such permits, and it’s a nightmare for new companies to set up physical locations within the UK)

3., Key personnel also need to be licensed and acquire the proper permits

It’s very complicated to apply for a licence (if you are doing it for the first time, you absolutely need the help of a UK lawyer specializing in gambling licenses, there is no way around it, prepare to pay an arm and a leg), but compared to the other EU countries this is actually one of the less complicated licensing procedures (but one of the most expensive with lawyer fees). As you can see, in order to e.g.: set up a casino, and you are lucky enough that your casino project was approved for development, then you still need to get an operational license, a local permit to operate, and your key personnel (including you, the owner) must acquire a myriad of other permits, licenses for yourself and key personnel. It takes at least a year, and cost a lot of money. Luckily the online gambling licensing procedure is somewhat more streamlined, easier and even cheaper, no wonder, it was overhauled in 2014. However, due to the Brexit the licensing procedure is about to be overhauled in a few years, hopefully that will change things for the better.

 

The two main categories of licenses are non-remote and remote. The following types of gambling establishments are licensable within the UK:

 

Non-remote (a.k.a land-based, terrestrial, brick&mortar) licenses:

 

Remote (a.k.a online, digital, internet – no need for local permit for remote licenses):

 

Pretty much everything you can think of. The license is a type of “pick and choose” licence. You can put together what type of activities you need, and then calculate the cost of the licence using the help of their online calculator here, on the Gambling Commission’s website. It’s a very good system. One thing, you can’t combine remote or non-remote activities. If you want both, that’s two separate procedures, two different licenses, twice the fees, and time. Costs are usually in the millions of GBP, per year, for a full fledged, bigger casino. If you don’t have that sort of capital, it’s best to not even start the process.

 

UK – Northern Ireland gambling licenses

Gambling operators in Northern Ireland also have to get a so called “operating license” from the Gambling Commission of Great Britain as well.

The local councils are responsible for licensing premises in Northern Ireland. These licenses are called “amusement permits”, and the gambling establishments are called “bingo clubs” (despite the name, it’s not just for bingo, this is the catch-all term for gambling establishments because of how old their gambling legislation is, but genuine big casinos are not possible in Northern Ireland, they are slot hall equivalents). Gambling activities that are mentioned in the 1985 NI gambling legislation are: betting on tracks and in bookmaking offices; gaming, including the use, supply and maintenance of gaming machines, small scale amusements with prizes and gaming in bingo clubs; and local lotteries.

The courts and district councils license gambling activities, the Department licenses track betting and PSNI enforces the law.

You must be 21 years old or older, and you must have lived in Northern Ireland for at least one year before applying for this permit. You must display the details of the permit including the licence holder’s address on the front of the machine.

Restrictions: You must not allow gaming machines to be used in licensed bingo clubs on Sundays, Christmas Day or Good Friday.

Apart from this very few info is available online, try contacting the local council of the area for more info.

 

UK – Great Britain gambling tax

The following apply to England, Scotland, Wales, these are all annual tax rates, the tax base is gross gambling revenue, unless stated otherwise. In case of foreign companies with a UK gambling license, they are payable after UK customers only:

 

Land-based casino gambling tax is progressive, depends on the gross gaming revue for that tax year:

 

For players: Gambling winnings are not taxable. You don’t have to pay any taxes on your winnings.

 

 

UK – Northern Ireland gambling tax

Same as in Great Britain, which is pretty bad for the Northern Irish so called “bingo and gaming sector”. They have to pay land-based gambling establishment tax rates, and have to compete with UK licensed online gambling websites, who pay significantly less taxes (21% compared to as much as 50%), and have better and more games (because, let’s be honest, if you go anywhere and you play slots, any sort of gaming machines, they are all digital, you are staring at a screen, it’s the same as online gambling, you stare at the screen too, except at home, many people refuse to see this, but the competition with online casinos is a very real phenomena, eating into the profits of small brick&mortar operators).

 

 

Other:

Fantasy football betting is considered gambling. Social gambling is not considered gambling as long as the prize is not money or transferable directly to money. Binary options are considered gambling: “financial spread bets”.

Summary:

 

 

Online Casino Gambling in the UK

 

Online casino gambling in the UK – Great Britain: legal, requires a licence

Online casinos in the UK – Northern Ireland: not separately regulated currently

Online casino websites in the UK – British Crown Dependencies: Isle of Man, Bailiwick of Guernsey, Bailiwick of Jersey – legal, requires a license in all 3 of them

 

Online Casinos are licensed by the UK Gambling Commission under the “Gambling (Licensing & Advertising) Bill” of 2014. Due to the financial burdens and their inability to comply with the standards some casinos pulled out of the British market after 2014. However, most of the major players in the industry obtained their licenses to legally provide online gambling in the UK, so players from the country can choose from a wide variety of such sites. The recent Brexit will have an influence on the online casino scene of the UK, but it’s too early too see how it will play out. We will update this section as soon as we know more. UPDATE: They started the review process for the 2005 Gambling act, therefore some changes can be expected in a year or two.

The number of casino licenses is not capped (about 300 are issued, but most of them don’t operate casinos). 18 is the legal age to enter a casino (or to play in an online casino). The current number of casinos in the UK is 155, and there are about 530 smaller slot halls.

Bingo sites, like all other UK online gambling operators also need to obtain a license from the authorities (bingo is one of the licensable activities) in order to be able to offer their services in the country legally and to advertise in the UK.  In many countries bingo is considered a type of lottery game, and is part of the country’s lottery monopoly (this is the situation in about 60% of Europe), luckily, this is not the case within the UK, and even land-based bingo halls are legal too.

The following online casino websites have live online bingo and accept players from UK:

Online poker websites in the UK – Northern Ireland: not separately regulated currently

Online poker rooms in the UK – British Crown Dependencies: Isle of Man, Bailiwick of Guernsey, Bailiwick of Jersey – legal, requires a license in all 3 of them

 

Poker sites need to obtain a Remote Gambling License from the Gambling Commission in order to legally operate platforms offering online gambling in the UK. Companies applying for such a licence are rigorously audited and even developers of poker games and other kinds of online gambling software need to hold a specific licence, issued by the commission. The strict licensing procedure and monitoring ensures that rogue online poker websites can not legally enter the UK gambling market. Always check the gambling license of a gambling website! Never play in an online casino or online poker website without a license! You will lose your money and they will get a hold of your credit card information as well.

Brick&mortar poker is legal too, and it’s possible to establish standalone poker rooms, there are at least 50 of them in the country. Poker is very popular in the UK, and the biggest poker tournaments often take place here. In fact many of the world’s top poker players are from the UK, the prestigious list includes: Dave ‘Devilfish’ Ulliot, Chris Moorman, Sam Trickett, and Stephen Chidwick, just to name a few. There is not a big city in Great Britain without multiple poker room.

The UK licensed online poker sites below accept players from the country.

Online sports betting sites are also licensed by the Gambling Commission, and since the enactment of the 2014 Gambling (Licensing & Advertising) Bill many of the major players in the industry applied for and received a licence for offering their services in the UK. Actually, online sports betting is the most popular form of online gambling in the UK*, even more popular than online casinos, and the sports betting market grows by about 7% annually. Maybe the growth will slow down post-brexit, but it’s too early to tell how leaving the EU will affect the economy of the UK (the overwhelming majority of experts predict some slowing down, but the extent of it is unclear).

The following online sportsbooks accept registrations from UK.

 Alternative digital currency in the UK – British Crown Dependencies: Isle of Man, Bailiwick of Guernsey, Bailiwick of Jersey – legal, requires a license in all 3 of them

 

Bitcoin is legal in the UK. Even though Bitcoin is not recognised as a currency, British tax authorities argued, that Bitcoins are considered “single purpose vouchers”, which means transactions in the cryptocurrency is subject to taxation and it is regulated to some extent.

The stance of the UK Gambling Commission is quite stern. As UKGC CEO Jenny Williams said:

“The Commission neither prohibits nor encourages bitcoin. We are interested only in ensuring the proper regulation of gambling products consumed in Britain.”

So when it comes to Bitcoin based online gambling, UK laws require casinos specialising in the cryptocurrency to obtain the same licenses as every other UK online gambling site.

The commission also warn possible future licensees on its websites, that when applying for a UK online gambling licence, they have to  declare the use of virtual/digital/crypto currencies and/or payment processors on their platform.

The following UK licensed Bitcoin casinos below accept players from the United Kingdom (some of them accept bitcoin cash, bitcoin, litecoin, ethereum through Skrill, look for Skrill in the payment options menu).

Gamble responsibly,
SimonTheSorcerer

Thank you for visiting:
This is a selfie of the author and owner of Simon's Casino Gambling Blog, me, Simon András Péter, a.k.a. by the internet pseudonym SimonTheSorcerer, owner of Simon's Online Marketing Kft. This is the homepage of my online casino gambling blog, you can see what's on the website, the links to all the different sections of the website.
That's me, Simon, thank you for visiting.
Don't worry, this is not an ad! 😉 Just wanted to make sure to tell you that I'm glad you visited this gambling blog. I'm Simon, the only author and owner of this independent gambling blog (if you are interested, my unusual life story can be found on the homepage, under the "About me" dropdown section).
I'm an independent gambling blogger since 2012, and in this industry dominated by huge media companies, gambling companies and online marketing companies, who can easily spend $ millions on their online gambling blogs, it's not easy for an independent nobody like me to even appear in search engines (I do everything, I don't have any employees, no venture funding). It took me about 6 years, working my ass off, for search engines to start putting my site in front of visitors like you, and I'm lucky enough that for a few years now, I make enough money to be able to do this full time (before that, I had part-time jobs, ghost writing gigs, online marketing this and that, to make ends meet, I hated it, I'm glad I no longer have to do it, other freelancers can probably relate).
Now I can finally do this full time, thanks to visitors like you, and it means a lot! If you are interested, please bookmark this site (no social media profiles, I no longer have any, on purpose, for various reasons I'm not getting into here, but please feel free to share anything on any social media networks, if you still use them). I don't have any money to advertise, and if you have a personal blog, any social media profile, your own blog, please mention my gambling blog and link back to it. This the only way for a small website like this to grow. Thank you!

Logo of Kiva.org. You can read about my non-profit activity right next to the picture.
Charity: As a way to help others, to give back, I sometimes donate to Kiva. If you click on the ads on the website, I make some money (but not much, much less than you probably expect, and I only get any if you register an account, and you actually deposit some money). But on a good month, if I make more than my expenses, I donate to charities, primarily Kiva.
Kiva helps young entrepreneurs in developing countries, which is an issue close to my heart for obvious reasons. If you have the means, please sign up with the revolutionary non-profit company Kiva.org and help people lift themselves out of poverty, through hard-work, and an initial investment (non-profit loans). These non-profit loans encourage entrepreneurship and hard work, instead of creating a dependent class that is afraid to get a job, or start a business (because if they did, they would no longer get benefits and free money). This is the right way to fight poverty in developing countries (or anywhere else really), and if this is something you are interested in, and if you would like to know more, or to help out, please check out Kiva.org here. Thank you!

  1. I deposited and played £40 following an email link to a casino. I was supposed to get a bonus but never got it.When I tried to contact the casino I had no reply to any emails.After looking up the gambling comission and contacting them,they said the casino were operating in the UK illegally without licence.I contacted my credit card company whom credited my account but the casino challenged it and the credit card company have paid them again.What are my rights?

      Sadly, if it is an illegally operating online casino, with no valid UK online casino license, then there is nothing you can do. This why it is important to only play online in casinos with a valid UK license.
      There is only one thing you can try, as a sort of revenge (it won’t get your money back), but contact the issuer of their gambling license (if they even have one) and tell that licensing board that they illegally accept players from the UK. They will revoke their gambling license immediately. However, sadly, these illegal operating online casinos sometimes don’t even have any gambling license. Please be more careful next time.
