Betting And Gaming Council

Responding to the Gambling Commission’s announcement on VIP schemes, Michael Dugher, chief executive of the Betting and Gaming Council, said:

“The BGC, working with the Gambling Commission, has taken tough action on VIP accounts, including the introduction of a strict new code of conduct which has seen the number of players enrolled in them reduced by 70 per cent.

“The code restricts anyone aged under 25 from taking part, while any customer considered for a VIP reward programme must first pass rigorous safer gambling checks and be subject to ongoing checks on their betting behaviour. Reward programmes must be overseen by senior management and conducted in a clear and transparent way to prevent any betting-related harm. Operators are also banned from incentivising customers based on losses.

“This is further evidence of our commitment to driving up standards within our industry.”
