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.
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.
The following statement has been issued by the Remote Gambling Association in relation to the to the DCMS Gambling Review announcement:
'There is a great deal for the RGA and our members to discuss following the DCMS Gambling Review announcement. These are important issues and we will naturally want time to consider it properly before commenting in detail and responding to the consultation. However, we completely support the Government’s intention to ensure that proportionate and effective safeguards for consumers are in place. We recognise there are concerns about aspects of gambling advertising and it is helpful that this paper can provide the basis for an informed debate about the issues.'
Responsible Gambling Week took place from 12-18 October 2017 and was a national, cross-industry initiative to promote responsible gambling. During the week, all sectors of the gambling industry (arcades, bingo clubs, bookmakers, casinos and online), in partnership with specialist charities, GambleAware and GamCare, came together under the theme “Let’s Talk About Responsible Gambling”.
