|Britain's hopes to dominate the world of online gambling are sliding away as existing UK sports books announce plans to relocate.|
The government had outlined plans that would encourage online gambling companies to move to the UK. The plans involved changing the regulations which had previously banned operators from British soil. Unfortunately, a few British based companies are looking at the benefits of moving elsewhere. Global Betting and Gaming Consultants are investigating the options for the companies.
GBGC founder Warwick Bartlett, who is currently the chairman of the Association of British Bookmakers, said that it is simply far cheaper to operate elsewhere.
