Received today from Rolla:

Dear Partner,

Firstly, thank you for choosing to work with Rolla.

We would just like to take this opportunity to remind you that since the recent LCCP changes came into play for the UK market, you are no longer permitted to offer play for fun games on your websites to any players from the UK, who have not been age verified.

As such we kindly ask you to review your websites that are promoting Rolla, to ensure that any players from the UK, do not have the possibility to play any games in play for fun mode, if not age verified. In the event that this does not happen, we may be forced to close your account.

Should you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to your Account Manager or contact us.

Best Regards,
Rolla Casino

I thought Rolla had been acquired by BGO, maybe that is why they are so cautious.

Whilst I was on my mobile yesterday, as I was playing 8ball pool, I noticed an ad for a game come up. It was basically an app that let you play slot games for a 'play balance' I think. The reason I'm pointing this out is because Book of Ra was one of the games advertised. I didn't click on it to have a look and can't remember the name of it but it definitely showed up and would assume it's available for kids to play, so what's the point in banning free play when you have apps like this?

There's a myriad of 'fun play' slot apps out there. What makes the official branded slots more dangerous?

Seems to me that the UKGC have their priorities misplaced when we STILL have the issue of pending periods and dodgy Ts&Cs having a more profound effect on players.

Yep, Novomatic and Merkur definitely have these and have commented on this before elsewhere. The games have the same RTP as the actual play for real games as well! Surely should be age restricted.

Yes.

Also, I'd wager most of today's 'youth' are probably using a VPN anyway when browsing, which deems any geo-restricting pretty useless.

Like I said, the UKGC need to be doing something constructive, not pissing off affiliates.

To be honest UKGC don’t really care about affiliates now a days ... and most likely it will continue in the same manner !

Well, they do care....about them not allowing free to play games on their sites! Don't give a shit about them being shafted by operators though.

How does one go about getting a job in the UKGC? Pretty sure that the average player would have a lot more insight into the way things should be conducted with regards to the regulation of online casinos.

Ha now there is a question. Answer is, they look for people who are heavily involved in compliance/law type roles. They have a ton of homeworkers as well interestingly.

Working from home you say? Plenty of opportunity to fire up the old PC and have a session on the good old HV behemoths. Maybe they'll even get a cashout where they're subjected to a 2 day pending period, followed by a request for 3 copies of their bank card, a utility bill, driver's license, 3 months worth of bank statements, a payslip, a sperm sample and a lock of their mother's hair :rolleyes::laugh:
