Get UK Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Thank you for your reply. We are licensed in Belize and the license allowing us to provide online gambling services. All of our servers are located in Belize. We take bets from customer all over the world, provided that the customer's jurisdiction allow online gambling. My question is, since we are operating through a UK company and accepting bets from UK customers as well. I want to double check if this would be an offences mention in Gambling Act 2005, Section 33.To be specific, I would like you to help me to interpret Gambling Act 2005 section 36, Territorial application (http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2005/19/section/36)
our situation satisfy the requirements there, i.e. we don't have a single equipment located in UK. However, the Act is not clear in indicating whether it is legal for a UK company like us to provide online gambling services in UK, but who has all the equipments located overseas.
If we don't advertise at all and have all operation to overseas, will it be okay if we still use a UK company?
