The Gambling Commission has updated its FAQs and has extended the deadline for the licensing of “gambling software” providers.

Now, from 31 March 2015 (not 30 January 2015, as before), it will be a licensing condition that operators only use gambling software from licensed developers. This places the onus squarely on operators to ensure their suppliers, where required, HOLD the requisite licence (not just have applied for), regardless of where the supplier is located.
