Parlament des Vereinigten Königreichs fordert eine Überarbeitung der Gaming-Gesetze

The Parliament in the United Kingdom has just issued its final report on the current state of online casino games in the country. Headed by the Commons Culture, Media and Sport Committee, the report indicates that the country’s parliamentarians are unhappy with the status quo and believe that the 2005 Gambling Act is inconsistent and lacks evidence. Furthermore, MP’s stated that the UK gaming laws in general are out-of-date and do not support the many technological changes occurring.
 
One of the biggest issues on the table is related to gaming taxation. The Parliamentary Committee supports placing a tax on the point of consumption but is looking to the Treasury to work with industry influencers to determine the exact amount. They are hoping that with new regulation and taxation in place, fewer top rated online casinos will choose to operate offshore.
 
The report also highlighted concerns about the UK Gambling Commission, which was deemed “an overly expensive, bureaucratic regulator.” The report accused the Commission of not sufficiently managing its budget and cost, and hiding behind inefficiencies. The recommendation for an independent evaluation of the Gambling Commission’s expenses was suggested.
 
John Whittingdale, the Conservative MP who heads the Committee stated that gambling was widely accepted in the UK as a “legitimate entertainment activity.” He went on to say that the “reluctantly permissive” tone of gambling legislation is outdated and fails to cope with the realities of global online gambling. He concluded, “Our general approach in this report has therefore been to support liberalization of rules and delegation of decisions to those closest to the communities that will be affected.”
