All online gambling activities in the United Kingdom of Great Britain are regulated by The Gambling Act 2005. The United Kingdom Gambling Commission was set up under the Gambling Act 2005 to regulate commercial gambling in Great Britain. The UK market statistically is the biggest gambling market in Europe, which makes it exceptionally attractive and competitive at the same time. Remote betting, casino games or lotteries can be made available to UK players if the appropriate remote gambling license is granted by the UKGC.
The UK is widely acknowledged as being one of the stricter jurisdictions in the EU, putting great emphasis on player protection and social responsibility, as well as defining clear technical standards as well as implementation guidelines.
