Gambling act regulatory impact assessment

Abstract

This Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) assesses the impact of the measures included in the Gambling Act 2005. It is supplemented by separate RIAs for sub-sectors of the gambling industry. In addition, detailed competition assessments are included for the bingo and casino sectors. The Government has three overarching objectives for the regulation of gambling: • To prevent gambling being a source of crime and disorder; • To ensure that gambling is conducted in a fair and open way, and; • To protect children and other vulnerable persons from being harmed or exploited by gambling.
