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.
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.
The Registration Form and the GAMSTOP Operator Side Implementation Guidance (GOSIG) are now available to enable the onboarding process for ALL (not just RGA members) British licensed online gambling operators to integrate with GAMSTOP in advance of the scheme going live in Spring 2018.
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.
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.
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.
