Gambling Commission

UKGC - The UK Gambling Commission

UKGC - The UK Gambling Commission

The Gambling Commission was set up under the Gambling Act 2005 to regulate commercial gambling in Great Britain in partnership with licensing authorities. 

In addition, the Gambling (Licensing and Advertising) Act 2014 requires any operator wishing to transact with, or advertise to, consumers in Britain to obtain an operating licence from the Gambling Commission. 

We also regulate the National Lottery under the National Lottery etc. Act 1993. We are an independent non-departmental public body (NDPB) sponsored by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).
