UK casinos that are not on Gamstop are NOT allowed to accept UK players – it is illegal to operate an online casino in the UK without a UK Gambling Commission licence!

UK Casino Awards only lists UK licensed online casinos that are regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. These casinos all use the Gamstop self exclusion system which makes it easy for anyone who wants to prevent themselves from accessing online gambling sites to block all sites at once! Operators who choose not to participate in Gamstop will have their licences removed.

Gambling Awareness to be Added to the School Curriculum

UK Casino Awards Gambling Awareness

The PSHE (Personal, Social & Health Education) Association is working alongside GambleAware to support children and young people to understand and avoid the risks associated with gambling.

Gambling Awareness on the Curriculum:

From September this year, all schools in the United Kingdom are required to teach secondary school students about the risks associated with gambling as well as matters related to debt. Until now, gambling has rarely been included in the school curriculum. This is despite students routinely being educated about the dangers of other risky behaviours including alcohol, drugs and sex.

Those who have been in the casino bonus market for a while will remember when £10 no deposit bonuses  were common, and it seems like only yesterday that 20 Free Spins No Deposit bonuses were a standard feature of any UK casino…but things have changed.

Since the UK Gambling Commission clampdown on bonus offers, regulation and management of casinos operating in the UK, bonuses are adapting to fit.

The latest bonus that is sweeping the UK is the BIG 500+ Free Spins offer that we see at many online casinos. But are all these offers the same? We decided to break it down with a few examples.
