Irish Government takes a different stance from the UK regarding online casinos

(Ireland).- Online casino gaming is a growing sector in many areas of the world, and the UK and Ireland are no different. The activity has been gaining popularity among local players in both countries for years now. However, we will see various differences if we take a closer look into comparing the UK and Irish stances regarding online casino gambling. Let’s start.

Irish Government takes a different stance from the UK regarding online casinos

Irish Gambling Is Entering a New Era

For a long time, online gambling has not been legally regulated in Ireland. Players could, however, easily indulge in these games, but they could only focus on providers located outside of the country’s borders with respected licenses from Malta, Gibraltar, or the UK. 

In 2019, things started to change. That was a year when the Irish government passed a gambling act for the first time, but its application has been delayed for the years to come. 

However, in 2022, the Irish gambling sector stood at a new dawn. On 15th November, the government published the Gambling Regulation Bill focused on changing a legislative framework for land-based and online casinos. The goal was to update the licensing policies, upgrade consumer standards, and turn to safer gaming and operator conduct. 

This means that once when the government formally implements new rules, gambling portals like IrishLuck, a leading online casino resource in Ireland, will now be equipped not only with the best gambling recommendations but with the best locally regulated options for Irish players. 

The country’s gambling is set to be controlled by the Gambling Regulatory Authority (GRA), with Anne Marie Caulfield as its CEO. This agency was newly established by the legislation and will have the players’ best interests in mind. Setting the right regulations, rules, and organisations in place will protect the Irish players, and keep the whole industry going and thriving. 

The gambling operations are expected to commence as soon as possible during 2023, a year when the national gambling industry will start a new era. 

In the end, when it comes to the most preferable games, besides playing slots, roulette, baccarat, or sports betting, Irish players have a love for blackjack in all its variants. Whether it’s Spanish 21, Pontoon, Mutlihand, or Double Exposure, they are always willing to place a wager.

UK Promotes Controlled Gambling 

In the United Kingdom, gambling and betting are among the most favourite pastimes. Unlike Ireland, the UK was among the first countries to pass online gambling law in 2005 and fully regulate and control all gambling activities offline and online.
