The United Kingdom is one of the largest jurisdictions in which online casinos can obtain a license. The UK Gambling Commission has been regulating online gaming since 2005. Any online casino that is based in the United Kingdom must apply for and receive a license from the UK Gambling Commission or any of the UK's whitelisted jurisdictions. See this page for a list of casinos licensed in the United Kingdom.

Casinos or other gaming sites interested in marketing to the UK do not have to get a license in the United Kingdom. The UK will allow a business to advertise their services as long as they are licensed in any of the following whitelisted jurisdictions. Due to the tough requirements required by the United Kingdom to meet this criteria, only large casinos with excellent history are generally approved. The jurisdictions are:
The United Kingdom provides gaming licenses for all types of gambling businesses. This includes online casinos, as well as sports betting operations, bingo rooms, AWP or gambling kiosk operators, and lotteries. Each type of business must meet specific requirements before the United Kingdom will permit the purchase of a gaming license.
The United Kingdom requires prospective licensees to meet a rigorous set of requirements before approving a license. This includes filling out a number of different forms to verify the identity of the owner and prove good faith. The UK Gambling Commission also requires a solid business plan and proof of sufficient funds, as well as a costly upfront fee. After a thorough investigation of the prospective licensee, the United Kingdom Gambling Commission will either reject or approve the applicant. If approved, the applicant will be listed in the Operating License Register.
The United Kingdom Gambling Commission keeps a regularly updated list of licensed online casinos on its website. If you want to verify an online casino's claims of a UK license, you can do so by visiting the Gambling Commission's website at http://www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk, then clicking the “Find Licensees” link on the top-right.
The United Kingdom expects all of its licensees to comply with regulations at all times. If an online casino licensed in the UK breaks one of its own terms, you have the right to dispute it. Although most disputes can be resolved directly with the casino or through third-party affiliates, contacting the Gambling Commission is always an option for serious issues.
If you need to file a complaint with the UK Gambling Commission, go to their website at http://www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk, then select “Contact us” on the upper horizontal menu. Click “Complaints”, then “How do I complain about a gambling transaction (disputes)”. Follow the instructions and keep an eye on any correspondence throughout the complaints process. The Gambling Commission will then work with you and the casino to reach a fair resolution.
