The middle of autumn has brought a lot to the iGaming industry. The new UK prime minister and his relation to gambling and a brand-new online gaming market with its peculiarities became the loudest news as of the beginning of November.

Let us discuss these messages and attempt to predict their consequences on the industry.

New Prime Minister to Deliver Sensible Reforms?

A brief position held by Liz Truss was quickly cut off by her ambiguous desires and perspectives of the British economy, making her ruling the shortest in the UK’s history:

  • Liz Truss — 50 days;
  • George Canning — 118 days;
  • The Viscount Goderich — 144 days;
  • Bonar Law — 211 days;
  • The Duke of Devonshire — 225 days.

Now, there is a new PM in the house. Rishi Sunak is predicted to stay more than just 50 days in the office, and the iGaming commission already makes its first approaches regarding a changing treatment of the industry.

The new prime minister was asked to deliver a «sensible, proportionate, and carefully targeted» Gambling Act white paper. Authorities at The Betting and Gaming Council have noted that Mr Sunak served in the Richmond constituency that hosts a horseracing venue. He is expected to understand an important contribution of the betting community.
