How we ensure online gambling games are fair
As the regulator of the gambling industry, we require all gambling businesses who offer online gambling games (random number generated-driven games) to have their software and gameplay tested in line with our testing strategy.
All gambling products must have been tested by an approved test house before they are released to the market. Online gambling games cannot be made available to players located in Great Britain unless sufficient testing has been carried out.
Once a game has gone live, gambling businesses are required to check the performance of the games they offer. This is to make sure that the products are fair and achieving the designed Return To Player (RTP).
We held a consultation on slots games design and reverse withdrawals to make online gambling safer. The consultation closed in September 2020. The consultation response for Online games design and reverse withdrawals can be found on our website.Previous page
