The Remote Gambling Association

Welcome to the RGA

The Remote Gambling Association became operational on 1st August 2005 as a result of a merger between the Association of Remote Gambling Operators (ARGO) and the Interactive Gaming, Gambling and Betting Association (IGGBA).

The RGA is the largest online gambling trade association in the world, representing most of the world’s largest licensed and stock market-listed remote gambling operators and software providers . We provide the remote gambling industry with a single voice on all issues of importance to regulators, legislators, and key decision-makers. For a full list of our members, please see the bottom of this page.

An Introduction to Online Gambling

We at the Remote Gambling Association have produced a five minute video entitled ‘An Introduction to Online Gambling’ which explains in very simple terms how online gambling works, is regulated, taxed and kept crime free.

RGA calls for Government to introduce a Statutory Levy

The Remote Gambling Association (RGA) today announced that it would urge the Government to introduce a statutory levy to replace the current system of voluntary funding for research, education, and treatment of problem gambling; and to ensure that the National Responsible Gambling Strategy is properly funded.

RGA disappointed in EC decision to close all pending gambling infringement cases

The European Commission today announced its decision to close all pending infringement cases and outstanding complaints against EU Member States whose regimes regarding online gambling are in breach of EU law. The Remote Gambling Association (RGA) views this decision as highly questionable, especially as it is based on and not on any legal assessment of the merits of the cases.

Portuguese online gambling law fails to reduce unregulated market

While the Portuguese online gambling regime is due to be reviewed two years after the first license was issued by the gambling regulator (SRIJ), a Eurogroup Consulting report commissioned by the Remote Gambling Association (RGA) estimates that 68% of the Portuguese gambling online gamble via operators that are not licensed in the country. The report demonstrates that the Portuguese legislation has not achieved one of its key objectives, namely reducing the unregulated offer, and the RGA believes that a more sensible licensing regime along with a workable taxation system based on Gross Gaming Revenue (GGR) for all online products would bring the best possible outcome for consumers, the industry and the Government.

KPMG Report shows the potential benefits of a well-regulated online gambling market in Brazil.

At a time when the Brazilian Congress and Executive branch are working towards a competitive regulated online gaming market, a KPMG report commissioned by the Remote Gambling Association (RGA), estimates that the size of the market measured in terms of Gross Gaming Revenue (GGR) could be worth above R$6.7bn (US$2.1bn). The RGA believes that the industry, local consumers as well as the government would greatly benefit from a well-regulated sector that would attract reputable operators, protect consumers and generate much needed tax revenues.
