A website offering gambling claims to be regulated by the Gambling Commission - how do I check they really are?
Gambling Commission licence holders must display a statement
that they are licensed and regulated by us, and their licence
number, on their website. This is usually found at the foot
of their webpages. You can check these details against the
operators whose licences have been granted by us.
Some websites offering gambling may falsely claim to be
regulated by us. Before depositing any money with a gambling
website, you should satisfy yourself that the provider is
appropriately regulated. Information on how to do this is available
in our quick guide
