UK Online Casino Sites Withhold Contributions to British Responsible Gambling Organizations

The gambling business in the UK is rather specific. It refers to the fact that all UK online casino and gambling sites need to show they take the problem gambling seriously and provide tools aimed at fighting the problem.

Some companies refer to a problem gambling organization on their site, thus letting users know about their attitude to the problem. But according to the agreement between the Gambling Commission and the UK online casino and gambling industry, online casino and gambling companies are supposed to make contributions to British responsible gambling organizations. Probably because of the fact that the contributions are voluntary, there are so many companies withholding contributions to the fund. As the UK media shows, only 1,000 out of 3,200 online casino and gambling sites have made a donation.

Since so many companies have a problem to uphold this voluntary agreement, the government contemplates to make it compulsory.
