Ep 210: Affordability – A Very British Affair

Following four years of speculation, UK Gambling appears to be exiting its regulatory purgatory as clarity begins to appear on its regulatory future.

iGaming Daily reviews a frantic week of affairs for UK Gambling’s regulatory proceedings, as the government announces that £2 and £5 stake limits will be applied from September onwards…

Elsewhere, the Gambling Commission announced that it will begin its pilot test on Affordability Checks as recommended by the Gambling Review’s white paper.

Yet as UK Gambling nears its Spring resolutions, Parliament will debate demands to abandon financial risk checks deemed untenable for UK racing and intrusive on recreational customers.

This will be the topic on today’s episode of iGaming Daily, sponsored by Optimove, where Martyn Elliott is joined by SBC News’ Ted Menmuir.
