2017-18 business plan published

The UK Gambling Commission today (6 April) published its Business plan for 2017/2018, outlining its focus and priorities in key areas for the next financial year.

The Commission says that this year’s business plan will focus on five key areas:

* Empower and protect consumers;

* Raise standards across all gambling sectors;

* Build partnerships and understanding;

* Ensure fair play on the National Lottery

* Improve regulation.

William Moyes, who chairs the Commission has invited consumers, the industry and public bodies to contribute their views to help shape the three-year corporate strategy.

“We are calling on all our stakeholders to share their views about how we and our partners can have the greatest impact for consumers – who are at the heart of everything we do at the Commission,” Moyes said in a Commission statement Thursday.

“These highly valued contributions will help us to continue to improve how we deliver our core responsibilities. There is also a need to build and maintain consumer trust against the back drop of changing consumer behaviour.

“To do this, we wish to encourage the industry to be increasingly innovative to continue to keep gambling safe, fair and crime free.”

Input is requested by May 5 on the form here:

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
