Under new gambling laws expected to be brought into force early next year, remote gambling would be regulated on the basis of where bets are placed - from the 'point of consumption' (POC). Betting companies based anywhere in the world would need to obtain a licence from the Gambling Commission if they want to advertise or transact with GB-based consumers under those proposals.

Besides, companies with remote casino, betting and bingo licences, as well as those with a gambling software operating licence will be required to submit regulatory returns electronically, according to the Gambling Commission's plans.

The Commission acknowledged that concerns have been raised about the security of its online filing system but said a number of measures were in place to protect the confidentiality of files. Currently, the operators have been able to submit regulatory returns in electronic or paper form.
