The UK Gambling Commission has released its annual report, outlining the five key stages of its three year plan.
The strategy, released in May this year, is intended to protect consumer interests, prevent public harm, raise industry standards, increase returns to good causes and improve regulation.
“We’ll be identifying ways to give more power and control to consumers,” said UKGC chairman William Moyes.
“We’ll also continue to review and strengthen the rules to tackle unfair terms and misleading practices.”
As well as announcing a new funding system to finance research and education projects, the report also stated that “progress with implementation remains too slow” on the commission’s National Responsible Gambling Strategy.
“Over the next 12 months we will continue to work with partners to improve understanding of the scale and nature of the problems that gambling can cause and of the impact on society,” added Moyes.
