Northern Ireland’s Gaming Regulations Have Been Revised

02 may 2022

Gambling etiquette in Northern Ireland will undergo significant modifications in the near future. As soon as the new bill obtained royal approval, it became law. The legislation affects a variety of lotteries, betting, and other forms of gambling.

Northern Ireland gaming regulations: changes

In 1985, the last version of such regulations was set. Internet gaming was also added to the revamping list of the NI government, but the main forces are now aimed at bookies and lotteries.

The Key Regulations

According to the adjustments made possible by the law, bookmaker’s offices can now be opened on Sundays and «Good Fridays», with no changes for Christmas Day, though. Betting businesses still can`t work to this day.

In September 2019, a seminar was held, with 66% of the participants supporting the softening of bookmakers' office working hours. Wagering businesses should be allowed to open on Sundays, according to the majority of people.

Safety Reasons

Now, allowing individuals under the age of 18 to gamble is a crime. Guilty of such an offence could spend 6 months in jail. A mandatory levy will be placed on licensees, as well as standards governing the conduct of those who are certified.

As the law neared its final stage in spring, Communities Minister Deirdre Hargey emphasised the bill's benefits to the greater community.

Commentaries of the Minister

Hargey believed that the younger generation is now much safer, as a new crime of inviting, encouraging, or supporting a young person under the age of 18 to play high-stakes gaming machines is established.

According to the Minister, the law expands opportunities for local charities, sports clubs, and other voluntary organisations.

By boosting the maximum participation fee and reducing the constraints on the deduction of expenditures that belong to society's lotteries, such an act was able to raise greater money for the best causes.
