....wow, for real?Sarah Harrison said the regulator’s recent work had uncovered “a lack of curiosity, and at worst, a leadership culture which puts commercial gain over compliance”......sanctions were likely to include “higher penalties”, particularly when a company was guilty of “repeated failings”........She called on companies to “raise your ambitions and your sights higher”, urging them to “step up the pace of change”
the Association of British Bookmakers, said it welcomed any efforts to uphold high standards of integrity.
“As a sector, we are always ready to work with the commission to raise standards and adhere not just to the regulatory and legal frameworks in place, but to the commitments in our responsible gambling code which go beyond that
Why do you think that?
Right so you have players that do bank transfer, ezycash, pay vouchers, credit card, paypoo, debit card, Skrill and Neteller mobile phone etc.
So this 'one wallet' or pay system has got to be set up to take deposits by ALL those methods. So who operates this one payment method? Neteller and Skrill would fold overnight as it makes them pointless if your method of funding them two goes over to the new one. All these other payment methods would just fold up without a struggle then?
Then there would likely be another level of commission firstly from your card/vouchers or whatever then another from the new wallet?
So the occasional player has got to fuck about firstly loading the single wallet up and the load the casino with that? He goes down the shop, buys his voucher, then has to open another payment account to load his voucher on BEFORE he even plays. He'd likely give up.
The revenue lost to the casinos unable to be taking direct deposits would kill them.
The players would simply go to shithouse sites where deposits are easy and avoid all the 'good' sites or licensed sites that were in the scheme.
What the hell have the UKGC done to their website recently? Impossible to find anything anymore, seems more and more geared towards b2b than consumers.
Hopefully they are signed up to the Open Government license so I can use the raw data to make life easier!
Also, where were they at ICE? The likes of Isle of Man and Kahnawake were there, but the UKGC were absent - Well Dunover and I couldn't find them.
They were certainly there in 2016.
