Assessment of online games design changes
There has been no notification or detection of any breach of the regulation through the development of new games but we continue to engage where we see potential issues.
Another assumption identified in the Theory of Change section of this report was the risk that slots games could be designed or 'bundled' in a different way that resulted in similar play behaviour without constituting a breach of regulations.
New games entering the market are tested by an independent test house. There are also horizon-scanning methods within the Gambling Commission for new products that have the potential to be contentious or innovative. Through these avenues, the Commission has not identified any non-compliance with the new requirements or any introduced that attempts to ‘bundle’ games together.
We continue to engage where we see potential issues with classification of products.Previous section
