Its deffinatlly effect on Uk players.

U.K. votes to leave the EU, regulation, gaming taxes and online poker liquidity could all be affected. Operators may decide to relocate their business either into or out of the EU.

The UK has it's own licensing regime, and no longer relies on the concept of free trade as was the case with the previous whitelist system where Malta got in by default, whereas Kahnawake had to apply, and were refused. Even outside of the EU, our licensing regime can cater for any gambling operator no matter where based, provided the UKGC don't find a way to screw it up. It's the UKGC screwing things up that might cause problems, for example they could say that Malta now has to be properly vetted as a suitable primary licencing jurisdiction rather than getting a free pass because it's based in the EU. It will take 2-3 years for the UK to actually exit the EU, so there should be no reason for sudden changes for UK players now, and plenty of notice of what might change in the future as agreements are negotiated between the UK and the EU.

can't give the clear answer, but exactly know one thing that will be remembered and joked for a long time - only England could leave Europe twice a week :D

The only effect so far as I can tell is if there is a positive/negative dramatic change in the pound/Euro rate from the time of making a withdrawal at a Euro depositing site to the time it is processed when you deposit in pounds.

I wouldn't panic just yet. Casinos are tailoring their games towards the UK market and revamping some of their games!:

Koi Princess will not feature the main character due to new immigration laws

Alien Robots will have the 'Alien' removed so as not to offend people's sensitivities

Beach has been re-programmed, it now features gunboats as scatters

Fruit Case will have our very own Boris Johnson in it

& best of all, Dead or Alive can now be played for days on end due to the plummeting pound sterling

Other than that it's all tickety-boo

Nothing will change. UK=big prosperous market. Casinos want some of it. Casinos will supply the market or find a way to. Simples.

Money and trade will ALWAYS trump political decisions. No pun if you're an American BTW.

There are too many pant-crappers and shit-stirrers instilling doubt into people because they didn't get their own way in the referendum.

Ignore them and KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON!:thumbsup:

My eldest daughter is a UNI lass and they where bombarded with the remain propaganda.She was full of doom and gloom and was pretty angry at me voting leave despite my efforts to reason with her. ( Not too angry to find me when she needs a few bob) :rolleyes:
Yesterday I showed her an article about how Britain could build a free trade zone 10 times that of Brussels with a quote from the new trade minister. But my daughter was having none of it. And this from a lass who has a generally sunny outlook on life.
Bloody students and pessimists ! :mad:
