Latest News from The Lotteries Council

  • Suspicious Activity Reporting

    The National Crime Agency has recently published guidance on submitting Suspicious Activity Reports and this information can be found here

     
  • Contacting The Gambling Commission

    It has recently come to the attention of the Gambling Commission that the message regarding a specific email address for operators to use for queries has not been made clear on their website, with many licensees still using the info@gamblingcommission.gov.uk email address.  Enquiries through this address have a response target of ten working days.

    Licensing colleagues have informed the council that the email Licensing@gamblingcommission.gov.uk has a much shorter response target of three working days.  Although operators may have the direct email address of their account manager, if that person is away from the office or sick then their query may not be picked up straight away.  It is therefore easier if the query is directed to the Licensing inbox as these are checked constantly by numerous Licensing Officers and directed to the most appropriate person.

     
  • LCCP Crime Review

    The Gambling Commission’s response to the crime review consultation is now published and available here

     
  • Deregulation of exempt lotteries

    The legislative Reform Order (LRO) changing some of the requirements for exempt lotteries came into force on the 6th April 2016.

    The Gambling Commission have issued a press release regarding the changes and have also published an e-bulletin article which is available here

     
  • Who's who at the Gambling Commission

    Gambling Commission Executive level changes help put consumers at heart of regulation

    Changes have been made to the portfolios and accountabilities of senior management in the Gambling Commission.  These are shown in a new organisational chart – ‘Who’s who at the Gambling Commission’.

    The key changes are designed to:
    •         give greater emphasis to the role that the Gambling Commission plays to promote and protect consumers’ interests in both commercial gambling markets and the National Lottery
    •         ensure sufficient focus on analysis and evidence.  The Gambling Commission is an evidence-led regulator.  We produce regular public data on industry trends and consumer participation.  This helps shape policy on gambling in Britain, as well as informing regulatory decisions
    •         look to market, technology and consumer developments, for example the increasingly digital and mobile-led dimension to the National Lottery and commercial gambling, and take account of these changes in future regulatory approaches.  
    •         maintain a strong focus on effective engagement with industry sectors; on shared regulation with local authorities in England, Scotland and Wales, and, in an international gambling market, on partnerships with regulators in other jurisdictions.
    •         build on the Commission’s expertise, its ways of working and communications to ensure regulation is effective and efficient for the future. 

    The changes in portfolios take effect from 1 April 2016.   

    In April, the Commission will also publish its business and financial plan for 2016/17.  This will set out the key programmes, projects and deliverables for the coming year. 

    Later in the financial year, a process will begin to develop a new forward strategy for the Gambling Commission.
