UKGC Wants Better Age Verification

Recently, we’ve seen a huge upsurge in questions and requests with regards to how UK online casino gaming is handled. The UK body for handling the gambling industry, the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) recently produced an interesting range of different recommendations regarding how the industry should be managed. One of the most interesting statements, though came from Neil McArthur, the UKGC Chief Executive, saying that he hoped Britain would retain its position at the head of the online gaming industry.

“The proposals we have announced today are intended to protect children better, reduce the risks to vulnerable consumers and build on the measures we already impose on operators to know their customers and intervene at an earlier stage before consumers experience harm,” McArthur explained, with most of the suggestions at present looking to protect minors.

One of the most significant changes they wish to bring in is to do with age verification. With more stringent ID checks in-store and on UK online casino gaming sites, there is likely to be less opportunity for minors to get access to sites. The UKGC described this, saying:

“As well as pushing for better age verification, the enhanced ID checks would also take into account a customer’s “affordability” rating. Instances of players betting with illicit funds or bypassing self-exclusion blocks have caused a number of major operators to receive fines in recent months.”

These changes will likely go hand-in-hand with the recent Review of Online Gambling carried out by the UKGC.
