United Kingdom

If you count the thousands of betting shops along with the casinos, the United Kingdom offers more gambling facilities than the United States, the country with the most casinos in the world. The United Kingdom Gambling Commission (UKGC) administers one of the world's largest and most robust regulatory and enforcement frameworks in existence, so the Gambling Commision features prominently in our reporting about the UK. London is also home to some of the most important conferences and trade shows for online and terrestrial casinos so were cover those as well.

Mergers and acquisitions occur in Great Britain with greater regularity as the industry consolidates and big fish eat smaller fish. Not all partnerships result in one of the entities being consumed, so we stay on top of news about UK-based and licensed online casino game developers as software agnostic platforms dominate the industry.
