Among the rising profile of dissident voices against the UK online gambling scene, major changes are to come. The UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) has played a major role in spearheading this crucial change for the long-term across the industry. Indeed, this comes as part of a new enforcement action being pushed by the Competition and Market Authority (CMA).
The aim here is to try and make sure that, with many gambling companies now contacted about their terms and conditions over withdrawals, gamblers could find it easy to get their winnings back.
While many are uncomfortable with the ever-changing face of the industry, this enforcement could be a positive. With many online operators being politely asked to make major changes to their existing terms and their withdrawal practices, users might be able to get access to their cash quicker and easier than they can at this moment in time.
The UK Gambling Commission has contacted as many operators as possible, asking all of them to try and meet the new CMA requirements. Rather than being forced to jump through the hoops presently faced, the CMA and UKGC want to try and lift the frustrating, damaging restrictions on those who want to try and withdraw their money.
At the moment, many people find their earnings are inaccessible due to all manner of terms and policies that are often poorly explained. This can cause much aggravation among users, and these latest requests for change and enforcement could go some way to helping heal this particular wound.
With that in mind, then, there should be a major alteration to the industry practice that has, for some time, been a source of open frustration. If you’ve been hit with withdrawal frustrations before, change is likely coming.
