UK Gambling Commission - UKGC

Regulating gambling and supervising gaming law in Great Britain is the responsibility of the UKGC. To accept players from the UK and to promote themselves on the local market, online casinos need to obtain a remote license from the UKGC.

The three UKGC licenses that might be required are as follows:

  • Remote Operating License: If you are providing facilities for gambling to consumers in Great Britain online (or through any other means of remote communication)
  • Personal Management License: UK based casinos
  • Personal Functional License: UK Based casinos

Expect between 8-16 weeks processing time to receive license depending on which class of license you have applied for, and providing you have supplied all the required information at the time of application for the license.
