Welcome to a compliance guide where we will go through the importance of compliance and how casino guides can be compliant with the UKGC standards.
We will take a few things in account when making this article and this is what you should do in order to stay compliant with the terms of agreement set out by the UK gambling authority.
Make sure you display key bonus terms
This is one of the most important things with the new directives given by the UKGC.
You need to make sure that all the casinos listed in the casino guide display the correct terms and condition for the bonus that you are displaying.
This is very important, and you also need to display that terms and conditions apply, and to play responsibly.
You need to be transparent with the wagering requirements as well as how much the minimum deposit is to claim the bonus.
No cartoon graphics that can appeal to children
Gambling can be dangerous, and we need to protect our children from it. It’s important that you make sure that you UK facing content does not have any childish cartoons on it to be fully compliant.
A lot of slots have cartoonish characters in them, so you need to remove all of those in order to remain compliant.
Display BeGambleAware link on every online casino listing
BeGambleAware is a great site for helping out gambling addicts to get the help that they need. Most key terms need to also display a link to BeGamble aware in the online casino list, like they do here on Gambla.com.
As you can see this guide is fully compliant with the UKGC and they have full key terms displayed on their site.
Try to do something like that in order to be fully compliant.
Only market UKGC licensed casinos
Another very important thing is that you only market casinos and new casino sites that has UKGC license on your site.
This is the only way to make sure that you are compliant with the operators that are actually present in the UK market.
All you need to do is enter each and every casino your list and make sure that they display their license number and logo from the UK gambling commission on their website.
This will ensure you that they do in fact have the license to operate in the UK.
Next thing that is a very huge bonus and also needed to be in the top tier of compliant sites is that they offer you are displaying are correct and valid.
This will also be a huge win for your customers as it will build trust to your casino guide.
To enter a new casino and realize that the offer you were expecting is no longer valid is a huge turn off to continue on that site.
Also, it will hurt your sites reputation with that player.
Make sure to be legit and you will attract legitimate players!
