Online gambling: Challenges on the horizon

On 17 May 2018, the UK Government published a response to its consultation on proposals for changes to gaming machines and Social Responsibility measures. In the opening line, Tracey Crouch MP, the Minister for Sport & Civil Society, notes that “Millions of people enjoy gambling responsibly and the Government is committed to supporting a healthy gambling industry that generates employment and investment.” Crouch then goes on to say that “gambling also carries a serious risk of harm for individual players, as well as for their families and the communities they live in.” Simon Airey and Joshua Domb of Paul Hastings LLP, assess the Government’s response and the likely impact for operators of the significant changes being introduced, which aim to strike the right balance between growth in the gambling industry and protecting UK citizens from gambling related harm, especially those that are considered to be most vulnerable.
