The UK gambling Act of 2005 has been in place for several years already. It has created a gambling market allowing companies freedom and access to the market, as well as outlined regulations to control the internet gambling industry.
However, with the Gambling Act in action, they’ve got some complaints coming from the UK online casino gambling groups. In their opinion, the Act gives foreign registered companies unfair advantages over the UK Companies (the UK White list and the taxation of the online gambling industry are the major concerns). In view of the numerous complaints, the UK’s Department of Culture, Media and Sport is going to conduct a study to review the effectiveness of the Gambling Act. And as soon as the study is completed (it is supposed to be conducted by the beginning of 2010), the Parliament will consider the results.
