UK Gambling Commission Chairman promises consultation this year on player fund protection and another on poker network regulation.

UK Gambling Commission Chairman Philip Graf has announced that the UKGC would hold a consultation on player funds protection later this year, ahead of regulatory reforms.

In an opening speech to the International Association of Gaming Regulators (IAGA) International Gaming Summit last week, Graf covered a wide range of burning issues in the regulatory world, including social gaming regulation, player protections, and taking a light-touch approach to ensure strong liquidity.
