VIP Schemes Deadline 31st October 2020 – Are you ready?

Insights /

From 31 October 2020 gambling operators in the UK must adhere to strict guidance relating to High Value Customer or “VIP” schemes.

This Guidance underpins LCCP Social responsibility code 5.1.1 which requires operators to ensure that such schemes are offered in a manner which is consistent with the licensing objectives.  We would advise operators at the outset that whilst the Commission has not prohibited under 25’s from being able to join such schemes, trade representatives had suggested such schemes should be closed to under 25’s unless signed off specifically by a PML Holder.

Failure to comply with have consequences for both Operating Licence Holders and Personal Management Licence Holders.
