Reminder: New RTS requirements in force on 1 October 2017

As we have previously pointed out, the following new Remote Gambling and Software Technical Standards (“RTS”) requirements will come into force on 1 October 2017:

  • Live dealer studios (based on existing standards/practice and new requirement makes the Gambling Commission’s position clear)
  • Peer-to-peer poker
  • Use of third party software
  • Linked progressive jackpots
  • Virtual sports odds
  • Information security standards (security audits submitted after the implementation date will need to include the new requirements).

The new RTS published in June containing the new requirements can be downloaded below. Additional new requirements will come into force on 1 April 2018.
