The UK’s Gambling Commission has launched a new service that allows individuals to report criminal and suspicious activities related to gambling online. The service, called “Tell us something in confidence,” was announced on Monday and is designed to focus on suspicious gambling activities online. It enables users to submit an anonymous report, separate from the Commission’s complaint services.
The new service allows people to report concerns related to unlicensed gambling, money laundering, match fixing, suspected sports betting integrity issues, and underage gambling. Users can also provide additional information by uploading documents and photographs. This can be done through the online platform, via post, or email.
The Gambling Commission stated, “The Gambling Commission has launched a new Tell us something in confidence service to make it easier to report criminal and suspicious activity anonymously online.”
The launch of this new service comes at a time when the gambling sector in the UK is undergoing changes. The Commission recently released an update on its progress in improving gambling data collection, highlighting the importance of robust gambling data in enhancing the regulatory framework in the country.
In other gambling news, Jelly Entertainment, a leading developer of iGaming content, announced that it has secured licenses from the UK Gambling Commission and the Malta Gaming Authority. The company expressed its pleasure with the announcement and stated that it plans to continue growing its European footprint.
The new service is part of the Gambling Commission’s efforts to enhance the regulation of the gambling industry in the UK and to provide a platform for individuals to report suspicious activities and illicit behavior related to gambling.
