Operational note: Phase 1 timetable

27 January 2021

The Gambling Commission has agreed to extend the timeline for Phase 1 of the competition by eight weeks, to provide additional time for applicants to complete their applications and for the Commission to feedback.

These changes account for the impact of the higher-than-expected number of games submitted through the ‘applicant game feedback’ process, and contribute to a fair, open and robust competition by providing applicants with sufficient time to assimilate the Commission’s feedback prior to Phase 1 applications being submitted.

The Commission also considered the challenges posed by the Covid-19 global pandemic, and the representations made by applicants on the impact of restrictions in both the UK, and other countries, on the preparation of their applications.

All dates are indicative and may evolve in line with market feedback and the continued national, and international, impact of Covid-19, all of which we are keeping under constant review. 

The submission deadline for Phase 1 ITA responses is now 16 April 2021.
