No-Deal Brexit Scenarios:


The introduction of W.T.O rules will come into play so it is very possible that you see changes in legislation and possible adjustments in the tax rules.

The majority of the casinos you have access to are based within the E.U, a small handful operate within the UK and are controlled by the UK Gambling Commission.

The ability to ‘play abroad’ comes via the allowance of casinos to adopt legal licenses to support punters from all over the E.U to play where they want. This could all end with UK players being restricted to their own national online casinos.

Players throughout will feel the impact, given fewer players will be playing, there will be less in the value of jackpots to be won.

With this all said, it’s hard to say just now what WILL happen to the UK industry. For now, you should remain calm and carry on gambling!
