The Gambling (Licensing and Advertising) Act to come into force on 1 November

The Gambling (Licensing and Advertising) Act, which will mean businesses wishing to advertise or provide remote gambling services to consumers in Great Britain will need to obtain a license from the Gambling Commission, will now come into force on 1 November.


As noted in the IPA’s legal alert of 9 October here, the introduction of the Gambling (Licensing and Advertising) Act, which was due to come into force on 1 October, was delayed because of a judicial review case brought by the Gibraltar Betting and Gaming Association. The High Court has now ruled in favour of the Government which has confirmed that the Act will now come into force a month later than previously planned.
