Gambling News and Lucky Stories

Neil MacArthur, chief executive of the UK Gambling Commission, has resigned of his own accord. This was announced by the official himself, who decided to leave his post during the revision of the national legislation on gambling. He has been with the regulator since 2008 and started his career as a legal advisor. The press service of the commission named among other achievements of MacArthur the introduction of a ban on gambling using credit cards, the tightening of checks on the age of players, the introduction of new requirements for the protection of the design of new online products for the gambling industry, and the provision of support to victims of gambling. The regulator’s chief operating officer, Sally Jones, and deputy chief executive, Sarah Gardner, will simultaneously serve as chief executive of the UK Gambling Commission until an interim chief executive is appointed. A permanent executive director will appear in the regulator after there is a change in the chairman of the commission. The position is currently held by Bill Moyes, whose term of office will expire at the end of 2021. Recall that due to health problems, James Packer resigned as director of Crown Resorts Limited. Earlier it became known that the William Hill bookmaker denied the information that appeared in the media about the resignation of the company’s chairman of the board, Gareth Davis. As reported, Zeno Ossko left the post of Executive Director of BC MyBet (Germany). His decision to quit was explained by the personal ambitions of a top manager in business.
