Gambling Update: White Paper

This gambling regulatory update is a special edition focusing on the UK Government’s much delayed White Paper on gambling reform as well as the Gambling Commission’s own advice paper published simultaneously.

In this update, we summarise the key changes for both gambling operators and the sports industry, expected timings for implementation, as well as highlight some aspects that didn’t make it into the White Paper.

Overall, the White Paper takes a reasonably balanced approach to minimising harm for vulnerable customers whilst allowing others to continue to enjoy gambling responsibly. However, as anticipated, the proposals and the detail of any new restrictions and requirements remain subject to further consultation.
