    I haven't followed this UK licensing because I only have a very small number of UK players. However, give the link above was posted, though I'd check out the site.
    Me being me, I was drawn to their complaints section. Which tbh seems kinda spineless.

    It could also mean, the online casino the UK Gambling Commission Licensed, is trying to weasel out of paying a legit player their winnings.

    Which tells me they are not fit to hold a UK Gaming license.

    Obviously this is ALL about internal UK revenue and tax. Players not being paid is clearly not a problem, here.

    That quote you provided is talking about getting money back that you lost, not about paying a player winnings.

    True but if a casino legitimately owes you money and it doesn't pay up, by virtue, it's lost winnings ;)
    Besides, I can't find anything else on that site, where, they specifically address, a UK Licensed casino not honouring payment to a player(s), unless I missed it, there is nothing there.

    Edit:
    Anything remotely close to player protection, dates back to 2008 and doesn't address the issue of a casino not paying up. Everything else talks about compliance etc etc. Not withstanding, in one section, it reverts to the excuse, most of their Licensed casinos will be offshore and will be bound by legalities for that jurisdiction.

    Serious it's a load of hogwash, peppered with excuses and enough spun semantics, for me to see it's clearly written by clueless nitwits. Who need to get off their public servant asses and actually experience what most players experience at casino's online.

    eCOGRA was probably engaged as consultants - the comparisons in site-speak is freaky...

    UK supposed to be the Gambling paradise! If this changes, I am afraid punters will be massively affected and of course affiliate revenues will go down. Welcome to the new world..
