The UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) is taking steps to establish Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) with US regulators in order to strengthen their relationship and promote collaboration. Tim Miller, the executive director of the UKGC, emphasized the importance of operators working together to prevent harm in the gambling industry. These efforts aim to create a healthier international gambling market by addressing regulatory blind spots. Miller stated that through collaboration, they can achieve safer, fairer, and crime-free gambling in their jurisdictions. The MOUs with US regulators will enable cooperation in pressuring third parties involved in black market gambling. This represents a new era of gambling regulation, aligning with ongoing reforms in the UK. Meanwhile, the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) is seeking cooperation with the government of Curaçao to combat unlicensed operators. However, Malta has been an outlier in this international cooperation, as they have passed restrictive legislation that limits the regulator’s authority over Malta-licensed companies. This decision has been criticized by European regulators for its lack of cooperation with other nations.
