Proposal 3: Remove the requirement for non-remote casino licenses to report data on a casino-by-casino basis
Within the regulatory return system, we require non-remote casino operators to submit regulatory return data on a casino-by-casino basis. This is inconsistent with how we collect data for other non-remote sectors. We proposed to remove individual casino return entries and to collect aggregate data from non-remote casino licensees.
Question 2.3. Do you agree with the proposal?
The proposal was widely supported. Some respondents commented that the change would significantly simplify the regulatory return process for them and reduce the associated data submission burden. One respondent asked how we would identify issues with specific casinos.
After a review, we have determined that we no longer require non-remote casino operators to submit regulatory return data on a casino-by-casino basis.
However, within the casino section of a return, we will likely require aggregate data to be reported to us split into two categories: casinos located within the ‘High End London’ and those in ‘Other’ areas. This data distinction will helps us to understand the casino sector better.
We conduct regular inspections of casino premises and are satisfied that these, and our other regulatory activities, are sufficient for us to understand regulatory issues with specific casinos.
Due to technical constraints, these changes to regulatory returns cannot be implemented until we redesign our eServices’ system. Work on this is scheduled to commence in late financial year 2020 to 2021.
