The UK Gambling Commission has disclosed that it has been communicating with online gambling and betting operators to monitor the guidelines that were launched in May, which dealt with the need for improvement, in addition to some stipulated rules, regarding accessibility and offering bonuses.
 
In addition, the organization says it will continue to monitor to see how the country's response to the rules set in recent weeks will be regarding various levels of restrictions in the gaming industry. The agency itself falls within these restrictions, which examine whether the Gambling Commission's powers to supervise and regulate some gaming laws in the United Kingdom are within what the government considers to be valid.
 
Finally, the entity said that it accepts and understands this assessment, as long as the possible new restrictions do not cause significant disturbances in the gambling and betting segment.
