Update on UK Gambling Regulation 1st of November
What does this mean for our players?
If you aren’t located in the UK this change will not affect your eligibility to play on your poker network(s) of choice. You may, however, notice a decrease in traffic on unlicensed operators if a large portion of the player base are members of the UK who are now ineligible to play.
If you live in England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland you are considered as a UK citizen under the GLA. UK player pools will not become segregated on international networks, however you may need to relocate to a licensed operator in order to continue playing. Furthermore, most poker operators announced to decrease VIP rewards to British players to compensate for the tax they must now pay on their rake.
Where is the best place for UK citizens to play?
We are proud to partner with two excellent UK-based operators that have taken the necessary steps to remain open to UK players. Coral Poker and William Hill Poker. The great thing about these operator is their promise not to lower their VIP rewards in spite of the new legislation. Many major operators (for example Pokerstars.com) have expressed plans to lower VIP cashback offered to UK players in the future, however Coral and William Hill are not affected.
Coral Poker is a top-tier skin on the larger Ipoker2.com network. Coral Poker is a trusted and reliable online poker operator with excellent software and cashback opportunities. For more information, please view our Coral Poker promotion overview here.
William Hill is another top-tier skin on the Ipoker2.com network. Like Coral Poker, William Hill has a long, shining history of excellent service and reliability. William Hill shares the same excellent software and player pool with Coral, however cashback opportunities may vary. For more information please view our William Hill Promotion promotion summary here.
If you have any questions about how the GLA will affect you, or to inquire about your personal VIP deal on Coral Poker, William Hill Poker or another of our excellent partners please contact our support here.
