Legislation in the Isle of Man is laid down by the Gambling Supervision Commission – an independent statutory board established in 1962.
The Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission is an independent statutory board established in 1962. In addition to the licensing and regulation of land-based gambling operations (casino, amusement and slot machines, betting offices and lotteries), the Commission also regulates all online gambling activities, which have grown significantly in recent years.
The core principles that the Commission upholds are:
- To keep the gambling industry crime free.
- To protect the young and those at risk.
- To ensure that the services offered by licence holders are fair and that players receive their true winnings.
