Remote gaming duty in the UK is going up, from 15 per cent to perhaps 20 per cent – or even higher. As the consultation process begins, what are the implications for the UK sector in terms of potential threats and opportunities?

This well balanced and deeply experienced panel will consider the potential impact of the RGD increasing by a third. How does an operator plan for that – and with relatively little notice?

How hard can operators be squeezed? The UK is already an expensive market within which to operate. By upping the tax burden, will budgets for addressing harm arising from gambling be squeezed?
