A Brand New “Betting and Gaming Council” Coming This Autumn

Betting and Gaming CouncilAs a new form of the governing body that plans to have more direct interaction with the UK gambling community, a new regulatory body in betting and gaming is set to be revealed this autumn.

The new control body will be set to replace the responsibilities and duties of the previous, “Remote Gambling Association” (RGA), plus the “Association of British Bookmakers” (ABB). These two names will be packed up as soon as the new council secures its placement within the operations.

Once the launch is successful, the council also has plans to reveal its first step. It is set to open its membership to sector incumbents aiming to represent 90% of UK licensed betting establishments. This excludes the lotteries.

Brigid Simmonds OBE, a former member of the GambleAware trustee, will be the first active member of the new Betting and Gaming Council. She has just confirmed her resignation as Chief Executive of the British Beer & Pub Association, which she has led since 2009.

Her previous experience has been with serving on the governance boards of the Sport England Lottery Panel and the Sport England. She was also the active chairman of the association with UK tourism, Tourism Alliance.

Her opening statement to this matter declared that the gambling industry is one of the top benefactors to the world of leisure and gaming, not to mention its economic groundings. Unfortunately, there are certain issues that must be addressed in order to create a safer environment. This should be the number one priority.

The formation of the Betting and Gaming council has arrived at a crucial time for UK gambling. As new reviews to directives on issues related to social studies and consumers are being performed by stakeholders as we speak.

ABB Chairman, Paul Darling, releases his final statement on the new Betting and Gaming Council. It states that he welcomes the council with open arms and hopes that one day it will help set the highest standard of law-abiding practises within the entertainment world.
