    The UKGC has a team of specialists who monitor reports of illegal gambling and who then use a variety of tools to combat illegal websites. The regulator also works with the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).
    There has not been an increase in the number of complaints during the lockdown.

    Among other, Richard Watson, Gambling Commission Executive Director, said:
    ”It is an area we monitor carefully and where we find problems we use our broad range of investigatory powers, alongside stakeholders such as software providers, payment businesses and hosting companies.

    “Tackling illegal websites and unlicensed operators is challenging and it is also resource-intensive, but we are committed to continuing our work in this area to protect consumers here in Britain.”

    Whether players get burnt at these joints isn't the UKGC's concern. Instead, it's the lost taxes. Same as AU. Though since the covid-19 pandemic, and all land based gaming operations have ceased, the AU Gov., could have been making a nice bit of tax coin, if, they'd been smart and licensed online casinos, instead of banning them.
