Fairground Slots PreviewFairground Slots is an awesome new casino that is colourful and vibrant. Not only is it visually appealing, but it is unique in its promotional material. The welcome bonus is just one example of its dynamic nature.

Its newbies cashback bonus, its VIP scheme, and its Turbo Reel are all exemplary demonstrations that of this. However, the focus here today is the welcome Mega Reel bonus which is multi-faceted and makes Fairground Slots much more fun to be a part of.

There are definitely plenty of reasons to be a member of Fairground Slots for sure but the primary reason (aside from the bonus) is that you'll be in for a rip-roaring good time regardless of how you feel about wagering requirements or deposit limits. Hell, you won't even care that much if you don't get the 500 extra spins as there are other prizes to be won and this is exactly how you do it.

Spin The Mega Reel!

fairgrounds 500 spinsIf you want to play slot games that are more than just generic fruit machines, Fairground Slots is the right casino for you. Once you sign up, spin the Mega Reel to win these amazing prizes. All you have to do is sign up then head over to the reel and give it a spin. You could win up to 500 extra spins with Starburst or you could win a £10 Amazon gift voucher.

And if you get neither, you could win 10 or 20 extra spins with other slots or a small cash match bonus. However, these prizes only apply to certain games given by the operator and do not encompass all the content it has to offer. On the other hand, 500 spins isn't an amount to be snuffed at so it;s definitely worth spinning just to get that.

Any Sticky T&C's?

As froterms and conditionsm the above mentioned, Fairground Slots does have a few terms and conditions that players need to keep in mind if they want to take part in this bonus. First of all, all new players get one free spin once they make their first deposit. The prizes, of course, vary so their is no guarantee that you'll get the one you want. If you want to spin the reel again you will have to pay a small amount to do so.

The Mega Reel spin doesn't come to you if you choose the ‘quick deposit' option on the site. If you close the reel prematurely, this means you forfeit your chance to spin it and you will not be given another free chance to do so. The wagering requirements for all bonuses are 65x, which is a little high but necessarily so seeing as how generous they are with all the prizes they are giving out. And, trust us, with all those free spins you'll be gambling a lot anyway.

Guide To Fable Casino’s Top 4 Microgaming Games — Which Have You Tried?

Microgaming has been making online and mobile slots longer than pretty much any other developer you care to mention, which is why we’re so excited to feature so many games from a catalogue which is impressive as it is extensive. In this post we introduce you to a number of our favourite Microgaming games which you may or may not have tried, and recommend you take them for a spin.

Microgaming LogoFable Casino is awash with hundreds of games from dozens of top developers, and while we’ll always stand by our belief that choice is the most important thing we can offer our players, we know that with so much on offer it’s often hard to make a choice.

We’d highly recommend checking out Microgaming slots and casino games, as this developer has been in the industry since it began, and its catalogue of games is as impressive as it is extensive. That’s why in this post, we’re going to run you through our pick of the top Microgaming games at Fable Casino.


Jurassic World

Jurassic World SlotWhen it was announced that the cinematic universe of Jurassic Park was being revived for the Jurassic World film, excitement was at a fever pitch. Not only was the Jurassic World film a massive hit, the Microgaming spinoff slot to accompany it was also widely hailed as a triumph, which is why we’re so proud to feature it at our casino. Not only can you relive the thrills of the movie on your computer, the winning potential of the 5 reels and 243 payline game is so high that you’d be an absolute fool not to at least give it one spin.

Thunderstruck II

Thunderstruck II LogoIt might be getting old, but there’s no doubting it’s still gold. This is the game that proved definitively that sequels could not only match up to their original predecessors, but go on to outstrip their popularity tenfold! Based around the pantheon of ancient Nordic gods, Thunderstruck II has special features based around each of the characters featured in the game – these include Odin, Loki, Valkyrie and of course, Thor. Discover why thousands of players have already fallen in love with this slot at Fable Casino!

Immortal Romance

Immortal Romance LogoNow, we know that Microgaming didn’t exactly invent the idea of sexy vampires, but there’s a strong argument that they came up with the best slot based iteration of the genre. Teaming romance and the undead isn’t all this game does, offering plenty of fun and winning potential along the way, but if you’re a fan of the likes of Twilight, Immortal Romance might be for you! The best thing about this game is that – although it was only available as an online slot until pretty recently – Microgaming saw the error of their ways, and have just made a mobile version of the game. This means the slot is now available to all players, however you decide to access Fable Casino!

French Roulette

French Roulette LogoWhile Microgaming might be famed for its slots, it’s important not to lose sight of the face that the developer also has a strong selection of classic casino games in its roster. One of the best is their French Roulette game, which we love for the simple reason that it’s one of the best, basic European roulette variants you can find at any casino. While this game doesn’t have many bonus thrills, it does what it does well, and you have to salute it for that!

4 Huge New Mobile Slots at Fable Casino for February 2018

January’s nearly over, meaning we’re almost through the most miserable part of the year, and we’ve got plenty to look forward to in February. Slots fans are in for a treat here at Fable Casino, where we’re adding four brand new games over the course of the month, thanks to our friends over at NextGen Gaming and NetEnt. The slots are welcome additions to our rosters, and all well worth checking out. Read on for more information!

Guys, big news: we’ve almost made it through January. That’s right, it may be officially the most depressing month of the year, but it’s almost officially behind us, and while February may still be cold and bleak, it has glimmers of hope that should see us through the last days of this month.

Here at Fable Casino, in fact, there are exactly four glimmers of hope, in the form of brand new slots we’ll be adding each week through the month. We’re so enthusiastic about these new additions to our roster that we couldn’t help but share them with you here today. So strap in and prepare to get excited.


Dragon Wins by NextGen – 5th January

Dragon Wins LogoThe first slot we’re dropping in the month of February is full of fire and Fury. Not only does this 40 payline slot have the intriguing reels layout of 3x4x5x4x3, it’s absolutely jam packed with bonus features. For instance, you can trigger Dragon Spins by filling the Dragon Meter, transform all Dragon symbols to the same colours using the More Dragons, Dragon Reels or Expanding Dragons features, on top of many other great features. If you’re looking for action and adventure, this slot is going to be your perfect companion next month.

Cleo’s Wish by NextGen – 12th February

Cleo's Wish Logo Yes, it’s another NextGen slot, and yes, it’s ancient Egyptian themed, but please don’t look at us with that glazed expression on your face; this is a Cleopatra themed game with a difference! The basic game of this 5 reel, 25 payline slot might be pretty simple, but as with most NextGen games, the real fun comes with the bonus features! You can get Wild Reels, picture symbols all showing the same symbol, huge extra spin bonuses and moving stacked wilds and scatters. And of course, being a NextGen game, it looks spectacular!

Finn and the Swirly Spin by NetEnt – 15th February

Finn and the Swirly Spin LogoOur next game comes courtesy of everyone’s favourite developer NetEnt. You might find it surprising to learn that NetEnt has created an Irish themed slot – replete with a leprechaun – but of course it wouldn’t be NetEnt if that fact didn’t come with a twist! In fact, while it might have one of the most overused themes in the industry, Finn and the Swirly Spin employs a totally unique spin feature, in which symbols spiral from the outside into the middle of the screen, instead of dropping down on traditional reels.

Twin Spin Deluxe by NetEnt – 19th February

Twin Spin Deluxe LogoOur second NetEnt addition of the month is set to be Twin Spin Deluxe, which as you can probably guess from the name, is a sequel which follows up on the original Twin Spin slot. Players familiar with the first game will know that it was characterised by a feature by which between 2 and 5 of the reels span in unison to show matching (twinned) symbols. Twin Spin Deluxe retains this key feature, but adds to the screen an extra reel (to total 6) and now offers wins via a Cluster Wins feature rather than paylines, making for a very different feeling slot.

Mixing Banking Options – What Happens with Deposits & Withdrawals?

It’s come to our attention that come of our players are confused about whether or not they can use multiple banking methods to make deposits here at Fable Casino, and if so, what that means for them in terms of in terms of withdrawals if they use multiple methods to deposit. In an attempt to lay these questions to bed, we’ve created this post which we hope will address these concerns.

casino mobile payments gowinOne of the many questions we get here at Fable Casino about banking at our site is whether players can mix their depositing options, and how much they’re able to deposit with each if they’re combining them. There’s also a concern that they won’t be able to withdraw using their preferred method if they use an alternative payment method once. We thought, then, that we’d spend some time here laying the answers to these questions, to help you get a handle on payments here at Fable Casino.


Mixing Payment Options

If you’re always wondering ‘Can I use multiple payment methods?’ the simple answer is yes! Of course you can! We want to make your experience as streamlined as possible, meaning that if you want to do something, we’ll do everything in our power to make sure that becomes a reality! This means, even if you’ve only used one payment method a hundred times, you’re still welcome to switch to another.

pay by phone casino banking methodAll you need to do is head to the banking section of our website, and choose the new payment method you want to start using. Then you just need to choose how much you want to deposit and enter the new details. Of course each depositing method comes with its own requirements and limitations, but you can read all about that in our banking information pages.

Different Deposit Limits

We here at Fable Casino realise that we have an especially strong appeal to the kind of players who tend to be highrollers, or at least like to play with relatively high amounts of money. We get it, the higher the value and risk, the bigger the reward and thrill at the end of the day; so it makes sense that you’ll want to deposit as much as you can with different deposit methods at our casino. The only problem is, however, that different payment methods have different limits associated with them.

Trustly casino banking methodWhile you can check our banking information pages for specific values for the limits on deposits (and withdraws), there’s basically a sliding scale from phone bill depositing – where you’re limited to £10 per transaction – and credit and debit card and other transfer methods – where you can drop up to £5,000 into your player account.

If you want to deposit even more, though, it’s totally acceptable to mix and match depositing methods, if you want money to come in from difference sources. Maybe you want some cash out of one account and some out of another, you can mix cards or transfers quite easily, and if you’re in a pinch, you’re always welcome to use phone bill depositing for an extra boost to your bankroll.

Withdrawing with Mixed Depositing Methods

skrill casino banking methodNow, it’s a well-known fact that you’re only able to withdraw using (where possible) a banking method you’ve previously used to deposit. This, of course, can lead to the question of whether you can withdraw with a previously used payment method, if you’ve used another payment method in the intermediary time. For instance, say you always use your MasterCard to deposit, then one day you happen to used Skrill; can you still withdraw using your MasterCard?

We’re happy to announce that we will allow these kinds of withdrawals, meaning you don’t need to worry about switching up depositing methods at the expense of withdrawals.

Wolf Cub Mobile Slot Reviewed – Adorable and Rewarding Gameplay

If cute characters and Disney movies are your thing, then we think you’ll love this new slot by NetEnt. If they’re not, however, we’d still urge you to give Wolf Cub a try as we think it’s one of the brand’s best titles from the past year. This is because the slot boasts a highly rewarding bonus round, a compelling base game and state of the art graphics. Read on to find out more about why we love this slot so much, and how you can play it at Fable Casino.

Wolf Cub Slot LogoWolf Cub was released late last year by gaming giants NetEnt and we're so excited to bring it to our players! This is because the slot boasts an adorable woodland theme, which we challenge you not to find endearing, and it comes complete with amazing graphics, a highly lucrative extra spins round and chances to win up to 2,000x your wager!

Wolf Cub is available right now at Fable Casino but if you want to know more about it before you play then read on for our full review!

 


Game Mechanics

Wolf Cub is a 5 reel slot with a traditional 20 payline mechanism, which is rare for the innovative creators over at NetEnt. That being said, the slot does hold a few surprises despite it's conventional layout and it can be played for as little as 20p, up to £200, per spin. It's also available across all devices, including iOS and Android, and runs flawlessly whichever way you play.

Wolf Cub by NetEnt Screenshot

As is arguably always the case with NetEnt slots, Wolf Cub looks fantastic. We'd even go so far as to say it may be one of the brand's most attractive titles yet.  The reels in the game hang against a snow covered forest backdrop, with the titular wolf cub sitting obediently beside them. Symbols on the reels include a handful of very cute woodland creatures, such as a bear, a snow leopard, a moose and an owl, each of which wouldn't look out of place in a Disney film.

The slot's lower paying symbols are represented by traditional playing card values, yet it's the wild frozen paw print you should look out for! This not only substitutes for all other symbols, but is also the slot's highest paying symbol, rewarding you with 100x your wager for a five of a kind combination.

Wolf Cub Paytable

Throughout the base game, players will benefit from fairly frequent, small wins. This is perfect for boosting your bankroll just enough to keep spinning, but the big wins of the game are generally found in the bonus round. This is why we consider Wolf Cub to be a medium variance game, yet it still boasts a healthy RTP of 96.34% and it's maximum win of £400,000!

Bonus Features

Unlike most NetEnt slots, which come with a plethora of bonus features, Wolf Cub players will actually only benefit from one extra round. However, the good news is that this is especially lucrative and is triggered quite regularly.

Wolf Cub Extra Spins Round

In order to start the bonus round, players need to land three or more of the moon scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. Once this has happened, all reels containing a scatter symbol will re-spin, with numbers taking the scatter symbols places.

These numbers are then added up, giving you the total number of extra spins you'll receive. There's up to 115 extra spins up for grabs in this round, which is definitely an impressive figure!

During the extra spins, players can also maximise their win potential by triggering the blizzard feature. This happens if a symbol lands fully stacked on reel one, and it means that this symbol will spread to meet all other symbols of it's kind.

Wolf Cub Blizzard Feature

For example, if you land a stacked moose symbol on reel one and a regular moose symbol on reel three, the moose from reel one will spread to reel three, meaning there will be a complete section of the reels covered by moose symbols. This, naturally, gives players a much higher chance of creating winning combinations and, as the blizzard feature even applies to wild symbols, can result in some huge wins.

Game Performance

For us, Wolf Cub is definitely one of NetEnt's best releases of the past year. We know that it's probably not as feature-heavy as some players may be accustomed to, but we like the simplicity of the slot because it allows the base game to be pretty fast paced and the bonus round is definitely worth the wait.

Moreover, performance wise, Wolf Cub is flawless. Not only does the slot perform flawlessly across all devices, thanks to NetEnt's HTML5 design, but it also looks incredible even on the smaller screen.

Wolf Cub Big Win

Finally…

Overall, we think that Wolf Cub is an excellent game and we really can't find any faults with it. For a medium variance title it's incredibly rewarding and whilst some may think it's too simple, we'd argue that this only helps to make it more attractive as it allows for a fairly relaxed gaming session. Moreover, the bonus round wins will certainly help to boost your casino balance and we just can't help but love the adorable characters and style of this slot.

One of the most popular casinos in the UK and around the world, Casino.com has over 340 games, loads of promotions and unparalleled entertainment that everyone can enjoy. Even though there’s an amazing loyalty scheme, you don’t have to be a VIP to be treated fairly. All new players can get some no deposit extra spins and deposit matches. The welcome bonus totals £100 and 200 extra spins, and that’s just the beginning. Find out more in our Casino.com review.

casino.com reviewFew are as successful as casino.com when it comes to their URL, but this means nothing without content. Speaking of which, this site is actually a decent online casino with great games, promotions and attitude towards the player. It's been around for years and uses effective strategies to draw players in and offer them entertainment few other sites can surpass.

If we had to describe Casino.com in a few sentences, we would definitely mention the large customer base it already has. Advantages such as 24/7 support and loyalty scheme really make a difference. There’s also a mobile app and a desktop program to download for faster and more convenient access. The actual gambling experience matters more than anything else, though, and that’s what we’ll focus on in this review.

Games

casino.com gamesCasino.com is mostly powered by Playtech, which means that the majority of games are provided by the company. Playtech is an all-rounder when it comes to gambling software, but they’re especially good at table games. As a result, there are around 60 table games on the site, including live dealer tables.

Despite that, slots occupy the largest part of the game collection, like at most online casinos. Aside from Playtech, some NetEnt games are also available. So, there’s an alternative if you aren’t a fan of Playtech software, though you probably wouldn’t join in this case anyway.

The list of over 340 games also includes almost 50 progressive jackpot slots like Mega Fortune and Jackpot Giant. Also available are 15 video poker games and over 30 other titles of scratch cards, keno, virtual horse racing and the like. The collection may vary a bit in desktop and mobile versions of the site and the dedicated app. However, most are supported everywhere.

 

Bonuses And Promotions

casino.com promotionsThere are many promotions available at Casino.com, usually giving extra spins, deposit bonuses or plain cash to the players. The welcome bonus is no different. As soon as you join, 20 extra spins will fall into your account. Then, you can make a deposit for additional 180 extra spins and 100% match for transactions up to £100. So, that’s a really good bonus with plenty of extra cash and 200 spins available for 30 days.

Other promotions have similar bonuses, except they’re usually smaller. Various extra spins are available from Red or Black, Funky Friday and Monthly Madness promotions. For bonus cash, you can invite a friend to Casino.com. There are special events too, such as this month’s draw where you could win a trip to Las Vegas.

The VIP scheme is also worth a mention in this review because it’s really extensive and attractive. You don’t have to do anything special to take part, just play at the site and collect points. There are five tiers, each with better features than the other. The highest ones include exclusive events and bonuses, personal manager and support, gifts, express transactions, cashback and that’s not all. Collect enough points and you may experience all this for yourself.

 

Banking

casino gamesCasino.com has comparably low minimum deposit and withdrawal limits. £15 is the minimum you can deposit, though you should keep in mind that some promotions require more than that. The minimum withdrawal is only £10, which is really low when it comes to online and mobile casinos. The maximum limits are just about average but they can be doubled by becoming a VIP. In that case, it’s £30,000 per month for withdrawals.

It’s one of those casinos that take three days to process the withdrawal requests. Have that in mind when cashing out and make sure to use your favourite methods from the start. That’s because you’re only able to use the same methods in the future. Luckily, the variety is astounding as it includes instant banking, mobile banking, Bitcoin and even phone billing options.

 

Who Should Play At Casino.com?

casino.com playerDo you like being treated fairly and valued as a loyal player? If you said yes, then it’s you who should play at Casino.com. Of course, everything else that a casino offers matters too. The biggest issue that could repel some players here is the limited variety of games, most of which are provided by Playtech. It isn’t the most original developer out there, neither technologically nor conceptually, so Casino.com isn’t for everyone. But aside from that, it’s almost flawless, hence its popularity and success.

E-wallets VS Pay By Phone: The Ultimate Comparison

E-wallets have been created to improve online banking process, but how can they fare against Pay by Phone mobile depositing at Fable Casino? It turns out, that all of these payment methods have their own advantages in certain circumstances. Each can be indispensable under particular conditions. For example, Pay by Phone is better if you’re only planning to gamble on mobile. If you like to play desktop too, e-wallets might be a viable option too.

e-wallets pay by phone comparisonE-wallets are indispensable alternatives to bank card payments, but what if we compare them to Pay by Phone? These ways to deposit and/or withdraw are very different, but both are also very popular. It just so happens that each has specific advantages that show very clearly in comparison to the drawbacks of the other. You’ll find an in-depth description of these advantages right here.


 

How E-wallets Are Better

There’s a reason why PayPal is the top online payments solution worldwide. It isn’t nearly as popular at casinos, but our community has other favourites that have similar advantages. Skrill and Neteller are fine examples of e-wallets and this is why people choose them.

 

Deposit And Withdraw

casino mobile payments gowinWhen comparing to Pay by Phone, the mere withdrawal option becomes an advantage. Phone billing doesn’t allow this commodity, so people who use it have to rely on other payment methods quite often. Every time they want to withdraw, they have to select payments by cheque, wire transfer or something entirely different. E-wallet users skip this fuss altogether.

This also means that their withdrawals are processed faster, too. E-wallets have an exceptional speed and reliability. While Pay by Phone bill is just as great, withdrawal methods like wire transfer can take weeks. Three days is better than a week in comparison, so withdrawal option is a major plus.

 

Device Compatibility

Pay by Phone doesn’t allow making payments via devices other than a phone. Yes, you can use it at an online casino just as well as at a mobile one. However, you will have to use your phone anyway. E-wallets like Skrill and Neteller, however, are available across devices. The former even has its own mobile version called Skrill 1-Tap.

This only means that if you want to play on desktop, you will probably want to deposit via desktop. If you want to play on mobile, you will deposit via mobile, too. It’s not so straightforward with phone billing where desktop players will still have to use their mobiles first. We agree that it’s only a tiny advantage, but some people might care about tiny details just as much.

 

Virtually Limitless

limitlessE-wallets have very high deposit and withdrawal limits. They’re so high that it’s up to each casino to decide what their maximum transaction size will be. In most cases, casino limits are lower than those set by the e-wallet operator. Plus, it’s these online banking methods that have the highest limits at any given online casino in virtually all cases. That’s why an e-wallet is arguably the best payment method for claiming casino bonuses.

Pay by Phone is the precise opposite. Not only does it have a low deposit limit, it’s actually the lowest it can get. It’s £30 per day, no matter the number of transactions or the number of different casinos, even. In this light, comparison is almost an unfair thing to do because e-wallets seem to be many leagues ahead.

 

How Pay By Phone Is Better

Now that we have brought Pay by Phone to ruin, it’s time to redeem it! E-wallets do have some compelling advantages over phone billing, but the same goes the other way round. Here are some particular examples.

 

Only Phone Number Required

phone numberPay by Phone is very easy to set up because it doesn’t require a whole lot. In fact, everyone can use the method as long as they have a mobile device with an active phone number. This means even people under 18 can use this service as long as they keep out of casinos, of course. (Pay by Phone has many more uses than just casino depositing.)

In comparison, Skrill and similar banking solutions don’t work without bank cards. You’ll either have to connect your bank card directly or use another e-wallet or payment method that needs funding from a bank card. Even if you do have a bank card, which is very likely, you may not want to use it for gambling. That’s where phone billing comes in handy.

 

No Account – No Fuss

What’s more, Pay by Phone requires no registration. There are no accounts because your phone number is a sufficient method of identification. So, there are no registration forms, no filling of blanks and no need to impart your personal data.

You guessed it right, this also means that there are no login screens. The step is skipped altogether, which makes the depositing process so much faster. E-wallets are not nearly as convenient in comparison. Not only you’ve got to think of a new password and fill forms, it’s necessary to log in every time. Even if you know your password by heart, this takes precious moments that could be saved by phone billing.

 

Superior Security

mobile phone securityWait a minute… Is Pay by Phone even safe if the phone number is all the identification it requires? Even if another person knows your phone number, they still can’t use your phone credit. If they tried, you would get an SMS right to your mobile device, notifying you of this. Not only that, you’d have to confirm it to actually authorize the process. It’s an offline security system and there’s no way anyone could break it.

While e-wallets have an exceptional encryption and security, it’s simply incomparable to that of depositing by phone bill. So, Pay by Phone wins this one, too.

In the end, both e-wallets and phone billing at Fable Casino seem like good options. They all have their pros and cons, but each is unparalleled under certain circumstances. In short, Pay by Phone is better if you’re planning to play on mobile only. If you plan to play both on desktop and mobile devices, e-wallets are a viable option. Or, you know, you can always use both.

The UK Gambling Commission: What Is It And What Does It Do?

You’ve probably heard of the UK Gambling Commission and seen their logo at Fable Casino or other casinos that operate in the United Kingdom. How much can you tell about it, though? What is it really and what does it do? In this post, we will answer all these questions about the UKGC, their licences and the role they play in general. One thing is clear – without the Commission, the UK gambling industry wouldn’t be thriving like it does today.

uk gambling commissionYou probably saw the UK Gambling Commission logo at Fable Casino and at many other casinos, if you’ve ever visited them. You probably know very well what UKGC is too, at least in theory. But how much can you tell about them? What does it do and how important is it? Well, you’ll find all about this regulator in a second.


What Is The UK Gambling Commission?

licensed casino uk gambling commissionIn case it needs an introduction, the United Kingdom Gambling Commission is a non-departmental and independent regulator. However, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport in the British government sponsors it.

As a result, it’s the most important legal entity that oversees all things gambling in the country. They have many responsibilities and one of them is licensing casino operators just like us. Like every casino that is legally operating in the UK, Fable Casino also has a licence that the UKGC issued.

The UK Gambling Commission isn’t old. It came into existence in 2005, along with the Gambling Act 2005. This law exists to this day. It regulates the gambling industry and controls its effects on society like never before. In fact, the UK is the most strictly regulated country in the world when it comes to gambling. All this is because of the Commission, the Gambling Act and other related laws.

The Gambling Commission Licence

licenceIf you checked the bottom of this site, you’d see the small logo of the Gambling Commission. Pressing on it, you’d be redirected to their website listing information about our software provider and the licences the Commission has given to us. As a legal authority, it shows all the data about licensed companies that operate within the UK.

They don’t just issue licences to casino operators, however. They also license other types of remote gambling, like mobile casinos and telephone gambling. Plus, they license and regulate bingo operators, lotteries, betting and sportsbook companies. Arcades and other gaming machines are also under the jurisdiction of the UK Gambling Commission. Oh, and gambling software developers have to answer to them too. So, they really cover everyone that has anything to do with the gambling industry.

Having a licence is crucial for everyone involved. As of 2014, offering gambling services in the UK is illegal without the licence. What’s more, not everyone can get it. Applicants must contact UKGC first and make sure that the service they want to offer is in line with the requirements. They have to be fair and user-friendly, to support problem gamblers, to make their own terms clear and much more.

This way, the UK Gambling Commission regulates the industry. They make sure that all the companies and individuals offering betting services or providing software are safe and trustworthy. It’s a strategy that works really well. As a result, the United Kingdom has one of the largest gambling industries in the world. If it weren’t for the UKGC, it would remind countries where gambling is illegal and, therefore, much more dangerous.

What Else Does The UKGC Do?

However, they can’t help players that were wronged directly. Instead, they can make the life worse for operators that were mistreating their customers.

The Commission also has to make sure that gambling isn’t accessible to vulnerable people. Problem gambling, addiction and underage gambling are all issues that they have to deal with quite often. For the sake of the topic, around 1% of the UK population have gambling problems. So, it’s up to you to decide if the UKGC is doing a good job.

Finally, it’s their duty to urge the National Lottery and other lotteries to return some of their profit to good causes. Working with other official gambling operators this way, the Gambling Commission works hard to make gambling more trustworthy in general. Being open and transparent is the best way to dispel myths surrounding the gambling industry. Nowhere in the world is this industry as open as in the UK, though.

17 Casino Operators Could Learn More About Money Laundering

Social responsibility, customer interaction and money laundering are some of the main issues for the Gambling Commission today. Their new strategy is to take these issues much more seriously and as soon as 2018 started, they have already started investigating various operators. 17 online casino operators have attracted attention from the officials due to the little knowledge of money laundering processes. Five of these will probably have their licences reviewed, which means they could even lose them if the UKGC proves that they didn’t act accordingly.

money laundering gamblingA few months ago, the UK Gambling Commission warned all the casino operators. Their three-year plan for 2018-2020 will focus on social responsibility and related issues, like money laundering, in the gambling industry. These are the very issues that the government got really concerned about last year. So, it seems that they’re taking it more seriously than ever.

The Commission stood true to their word and started acting according to their renewed strategy in full speed on the first days of January. As a result, we now have 17 online casino operators that attracted the attention of officials. This is related to anti-money laundering regulations and limited knowledge of such sensitive issues.


Letter To Casino Operators Regarding Money Laundering

sealed letterA few days ago, the Commission sent a letter to all the casino operators in the industry. The officials are rightfully concerned with how casinos uphold their social responsibilities. Casinos were also asked to review their approach to dealing with anti-money laundering. It’s one of the most important issues of customer safety. So, the UKGC is checking with every gambling operator to make sure that the market is as safe as possible.

After the main regulatory body in this industry found out about possible breaches of licences on a massive scale, they decided to do everything that is in their power. As of today, they are investigating into 17 online operators. Five of them have raised further concerns and might have their licences reviewed. This means that they could even lose them, should the Gambling Commission find out that they didn’t act accordingly.

What’s more, it became clear that some casino officers whose job is to report money laundering have little understanding of the matter. Apparently, they couldn’t describe money laundering well and were unfamiliar with the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002. Reporting of such criminal activity turned out not effective either. It seems that casinos often provide insufficient data for any positive solutions.

What The Gambling Commission Has To Say

uk gambling commissionThe Gambling Commission didn’t name the online casino operators in question. However, they will definitely shake the industry up and we’ll hopefully see the fruits of their labour soon enough. The UKGC Chief Executive, Sarah Harrison, commented that protecting consumers and keeping the crime out of gambling is vital. That’s what their new strategy is oriented towards.

Their current investigation is part of this new strategy and more such relentless actions are to be expected in the future. Harrison also stressed the growth of the remote gambling sector. It now accounts for one-third of all gambling market in the UK and that makes their goals even more important. A market as large and popular as this is no place for criminal activity.

Having that in mind, the officials are also reviewing the online market on a larger scale. Their aim is to identify how it has evolved over the years. This should guarantee that their next move in this fight for safer gambling is relevant and precise.

We here at Fable casino cannot agree more with the strategy that the Gambling Commission has chosen. Gambling, especially its online sector, has always been controversial in terms of safety. It’s time to settle this issue once and for all by licensing honest operators with professional staff and being strict about businesses and players who don’t abide by the rules.
