A few days before I sat to write this column, the UK Gambling Commission announced two things pretty much simultaneously – the ban on players using credit cards to gamble, and the inclusion of joining GAMSTOP for online operators as a licensing condition. The GAMSTOP move makes perfect sense to me, and it’s bizarre that it wasn’t done earlier. A player being able to self-exclude from every operator with one action should have been possible for a long time – this is way, way overdue. If we want to be seen to be responsible and caring about our customer base, we have to prove our intentions with action. And as ever, if we don’t act to keep our own houses clean, the government appoints a cleaner for us. But what do I know – I can’t even hang on to my own hair. Enjoy the issue – see you at ICE!
