Gambling in Sport

Chester Borough Council is gearing up to deal with the licensing of gambling. The Gambling Act 2005 completely overhauls the law on commercial gambling in Britain, passing responsibility for its licensing from magistrates courts to the Gambling Commission and local councils.

In preparation for this, the borough has published a draft document, called a Statement of Principles, which outlines the factors that will be taken into account when dealing with applications for gambling licences.

The document is in draft at the moment and people’s views on it are being invited.

A sensible approach towards gambling is encouraged but if you would like to play bingo online check out these resources:
