The aim of our regulatory activity is to disrupt illegal operators from transacting with Great Britain (GB) customers.
We receive reports and intelligence on potential illegal gambling activity. We may find, after initial assessment of a report, that unlicensed activity is not actually taking place or is not accessible by British customers. We prioritise action against those we consider pose the biggest risk.
While we develop improved metrics in this area, we are demonstrating our impact by reporting on the activity we have taken to disrupt those priority cases.
