The first six months of work bring 120 confidential calls
Reports of favorable results brought by the UK Gambling Commission’s confidential intelligence line designed to allow gamblers, licensed operators and sports people to 'tip-off' the authorities on questionable gambling practices have been revealed this week by the Commission, which added that over 120 calls were received in the first six months of operation. A great number of those made a significant contribution to ongoing criminal and regulatory investigations.
The official launch of the line (0121 230 6655) was in May 2010. The line serves for individuals to anonymously report illegal unlicensed and non compliant licensed gambling to the Commission. The line can be reached between 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday (a message can be left outside of these hours) and to date calls have been received on almost every day the line has been open.
According to the Commission’s Director of Regulation, Nick Tofiluk: “The Gambling Commission’s Confidential Intelligence Line (0121) 230 6655 is actively helping keep gambling fair and safe for all."
