Leaders in online and mobile gambling, SuperCasino, have responded to the news that the United Kingdom’s Gambling Commission has taken action against three illegal poker clubs in the country due to unlawful gambling.

Online has reported that the UK Gambling Commission has stepped up to take action against three illegal poker clubs. Investigations have been carried out by local authorities, with the support of the Gambling Commission, of three member based clubs for providing commercial, high-stakes poker to clientele. The Gambling Act of 2005 states that such poker games are restricted to licensed Casinos only.

In agreement with the Gambling Commissions are credit card companies MasterCard and Visa as well as online payment system PayPal who will be blocking all unlicensed online gambling operators in the UK when new laws come into effect.

Leading online gambling providers, SuperCasino have responded to the news and a spokesperson for the company has commented on the illegal poker games:

‘We enjoy gambling as much as the next guy, but when it comes to illegal gambling, poker games in particular, we agree that there have to be certain regulations put in place to prevent member’s clubs from organising them. These aren’t regulations that are put in place to prevent enjoyment of the game, these are laws that have been passed in order to protect venues and players alike.

‘We always recommend that players visit a licensed casino or that they play with a licensed company online, that way they can ensure that they aren’t being ripped off and that they cannot get themselves into dangerous amounts of debt.
