What to look at before you gamble
Before transferring any money into a gambling account, there are some things you should check.
Before gambling you should check:
that the gambling business holds a British Gambling Commission licence
that any restrictions on introductory offers or bonuses, such as a minimum spend level before the bonus are paid
if you can see their address, website domain names, trading names and current licence status.
What to look for on gambling websites:
check if the website is displaying a British Gambling Commission licensed status
check if you can click through to our public register and if it shows the licence of the business
check if the details of the licence (including activities and website domain names) match the public register
look at the terms and conditions for each gambling product, this will help you understand exactly what you are betting on so that you can make an informed decision on gambling with them.
