Description:
The Gambling Commission is Great Britain's regulatory body for most, but not all, gambling. It was established under the Gambling Act 2005 and assumed full powers in 2007, taking over responsibility from the Gaming Board for Great Britain, in regulating betting, bingo, casinos, slot machines and lotteries, but not spread betting (regulated by the FSA) or the National Lottery (regulated by a bespoke regulator).

The Commission's stated aims are "to keep crime out of gambling, to ensure that gambling is conducted fairly and openly, and to protect children and vulnerable people".

The commission is a non-departmental public body, sponsored by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. It issues licenses to gambling operators, can levy fines and revoke licenses, and is tasked with investigating and prosecuting illegal gambling. It is also responsible for advising national and local government on gambling-related issues.
