Online Gambling in UK

Online Gambling in UK

Is online gambling legal in the United Kingdom?

Not only has gambling in the UK been legal for decades, but it is also a very popular activity. Britain’s gambling industry is thriving, with betting being especially profitable.  The lottery was the first form of gambling ever to be regulated in the UK, back in the 1930s. People became more and more interested in this activity after World War II. At the beginning of the 1960s, the government introduced the first UK gambling laws and taxation policies for casinos and betting shops.

Initially, operators were only allowed to run small venues with a few gaming machines. However, The Gambling Act of 2005 legalized and regulated large scale casinos, allowing the industry to grow. Under the new regulations, the market expanded and flourished. Bingo is immensely popular in the UK, and gambling machines were introduced even in pubs.

Later on, when online gambling became an option, the UK government regulated this industry as well and companies quickly seized the opportunity to add internet casinos and online betting sites in the UK to their offers. Once authorities made sure that operators abide by the state’s responsible gambling policies and pay their taxes, a world of new possibilities opened in the UK, allowing the country to become a hotspot for internet gambling services. Today, British players have access to some of the best online betting site offers.

According to the country’s taxation policy, only local operators were required to pay a 15% tax on Gross Gaming Revenue. This encouraged online companies to move elsewhere and operate remotely. After years of catering to UK gamblers from places like Gibraltar, Isle of Man or Malta, the UK Government has decided to introduce new remote gaming licenses and duties for these operators.

As of October 1, all online casinos and sportsbooks accepting British players need a UK license to operate in the country. Moreover, as of December 2014, these companies will have to pay a 15% tax on all profits generated by UK-based customers.
