For the last couple of years, it has been impossible not to cross the word Brexit. It has been all over the news, but it is understandable. The United Kingdom stepping out of the European Union is a pretty big deal since it is the very first country to do so in the history of the EU. Its most important effects are obviously governmental, judicial, economic, and political. There are a few aspects though, most would not think about, like how will post-Brexit gambling in the UK look like. ... read more

Due to Brexit British politics now resembles a farce. Brexit is casting a long shadow over the nation’s economy. Brussels already forecasts far higher costs for the UK than EU. This means when the Foreign Secretary stands up and tells everyone it’s all going to be fine, not everyone believes him. Indeed those who have taken up the odds on Dominic Raab becoming the next Conservative Party leader, at online betting sites in the UK like Bet365, may need to reconsider. ... read more

Britain is yet to feel the full force of the negative consequences of Brexit. Their exit from the European Union just a little eclipsed by current events. However, as the reality sets in, that will change rapidly. So the question is; just whom will the voters hold responsible for this disaster? Should you really bet on British politics to punish the Conservatives at the ballot box? Or is a bet on Labour at online sportsbook sites in the UK like Bet365 just a little optimistic at present? ... read more

Parliament revising UK gambling laws is a populist move at a time Brexit isn’t making them popular. Unfortunately, this means MPs are not very popular amongst the gambling industry at present. In protection of their profits, the industry is strident in its criticism of current proposals. None more so than racing. Indeed they warn that perhaps this will lead to sites like Bet365 being unable to offer odds on UK horse racing at all. But is that even remotely close to being true? ... read more

Having got a deal the future of the British Prime Minister now hinge upon its results. It might have been a masterly piece of brinksmanship and diplomacy, but if it leaves people poorer? Who’ll care? Certainly not the Conservative Party. They’re not afraid to ditch those associated with failure. That’s why those who usually bet on sports in the UK should shift over and bet on British politics instead. Boris is 2/1 to get the heave-ho this year, and that’s a tempting wager. ... read more

The UK’s Conservative government has decided to be pro-active. Given its track record, and the impending doom that is Brexit, this is desperation at work. Most presume the government is reforming gambling laws in the UK simply because it’ll be popular. Or at least should be popular. Those running online sportsbook sites in the UK like Bet365 may not agree, but they may not get a choice. Although the Culture Minister, Nigel Huddleston, ensured they at least get asked. ... read more

The British government may have to do something about the lottery loophole. Typically, the law prohibits under 18s from gambling in the UK. Unfortunately, this doesn’t extend to lotteries. So UK lottery laws permit over 16s to purchase tickets and participate. This is something MPs and Lords would like to halt. So the operational terms of service for sites like Lotto Agent would change. Indeed if MPs have their way, even the best lottery jackpots will be reserved for adults only. ... read more
