Queen’s Speech:  ‘All UK Gambling Companies Must Have License’

Online gambling companies will not be able to advertise their products in the UK without the proper license.

The Queen’s Speech outlined the new requirements.

These include the requirement that any operators selling or advertising to the British market - whether from here or abroad - will have to hold a licence.

Ministers say the Bill will serve to protect UK customers as all gambling operators will be subject to "robust and consistent regulation".  They also believe that the Bill will help eradicate corruption in sports.

Operators must also contribute to research and educational efforts in preventing problem and underage gambling.
