Question What is so good about the UKGC?

    The highest rated licensing authority on Casinomeister, but why?
    It's not a passive-aggressive question, it's a genuine query. What do they actually do, or what purpose do they serve?

    Could someone give me an example of how I might need them or how I might benefit from them?
    All I know is; if a casino is UKGC-licensed, I can play there :D

    Sorry I missed this,

    I myself have not a scobby doo, My guess is that they have to bide by the strict rules, I guess that U.K rules seem to be more abiding than theses ofshore that do not give a dam about players,

    Thanks for replying spintee, better late than never ;)

    Not to worry though - I posted the same thread in the "Ask the 'Meister" sub-forum soon after this. I thought maybe it'd be better to ask the main man himself.
    And, as expected, he didn't let me down. It was explained and I sleep well at nights now :D

    It's all about money. It is more expensive to get UK license, which should indicate that a casino should not run into trouble easily.
    Still, at the moment there are two operator listed as insolvent. with their licenses revoked. The problem is, UKGC will not get punters their money back.

    So what are they good for?

    They seem to be strict and we can even lodge a complaint via live chat, that gives players a good leverage, should they have a legitimate problem with a casino. The cost of losing this license, and a whole UK market, should keep casinos from doing anything roguish.

    That's probably the best leverage we have as players. The UK is a big market.

    No worrys, cheers for that, I have a good butchers in a bit :)

    Edit::: I think its all a fast one any way to line line the Gov's pockets, I think the worst that will ever happen to a casino is license revoked, A shame really if this is the case,
