We're always keeping you up to date with the latest in mobile casino security and regulations from the UKGC (United Kingdom Gambling Commission). The UKGC have recently called for the public's help in identifying and reporting on bad casino and gambling practices.
We'll run you through all the ways the UKGC can be contacted to report bad mobile casino and gambling services, as well as how you can find which casinos are under investigation; so you can avoid them entirely.
Spotting A Dodgy Mobile Casino
One of the strengths of the UKGC is how public they are with their investigations into gambling businesses. Knowledge is power, and luckily the UKGC offers many public resources for you to know what mobile casinos are under investigation.
The UKGC posts all gambling establishments, both remote and non-remote, that have had warnings levied against them, on its website. It also allows you to see the owner of each of those companies, the reason for the investigation and when the warning was delivered.
The resource doesn't only show recent strikes, but leaves them publicly available for several years. So even if it's been a while since they've had any trouble, you can check the resource and do a quick ‘ctrl + f' to make sure that you're in no danger whatsoever.
This only affects casinos that are licenced by the UKGC. Previously, we've advised to only use casinos licensed by the UKGC if you're a UK citizen. That way it's within their right to act on any problems you may have.
Reporting Mobile Casinos To UKGC
The UKGC has always requested that customers report bad mobile casinos. This can be anything from bad service, unfair payouts, to even money laundering suspicions. We all want to gamble in a fair and safe environment and regulators like this; help that happen.
Anyone wanting to report a mobile casino, or any gambling service, can do so either anonymously or named. It's completely their choice.
Before reporting any casino, make sure they are licensed by the UKGC. The UKGC only has authority within the UK and so any casinos outside of this territory won't be subject to their regulations.
