The UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) has issued advice to consumers about online gambling. In light of the government’s latest requirement to stay at home during coronavirus outbreak, more people are now engaging with online gambling websites.
The major guidelines from the UKGC involve setting gambling limits, self exclusion for those need it and warning about illegal overseas operators.
The gambling websites allow users to set a limit on how much they can spend. The UKGC advises customers to use it without fail. The commission has also partnered with Twitter that would allow the users to set a limit on how much gambling content they could see.
For those spending too much time gambling online, or those who want help to stop gambling, the UKGC advocated self exclusion. The commission also warns about the possible risk of illegal overseas websites trying to seek UK customers. The commission will be tracking and taking action against such sites, but it asks customers to ensure that the website they are gambling with is licensed. To check whether a site is licensed, customers can check out the link to the Gambling Commission’s Licence Register.
