Gambling Commission Launch New Online Confidential Reporting Service

December 6, 2023 | Government

BIRMINGHAM, U.K. (December 4, 2023) — The Gambling Commission has launched a new Tell us something in confidence service to make it easier to report criminal and suspicious activity anonymously online.

The Tell us something in confidence service should be used to report activity such as:

  • match fixing and sports betting integrity
  • underage gambling
  • money laundering concerns
  • suspicious activity
  • unlicensed gambling or criminal activity.

The new service provides a one-stop service allowing users to anonymously upload supporting information connected to their report, such as photographs and documents. Users can also send further information by email or post.

There is also an option for users to share contact information should they wish to be contacted about the information they provide.

The Tell us something in confidence service can be used to provide any information that people believe relates to criminal activity under the Gambling Act 2005 or any other information that people may think could be useful to the Commission from a regulatory perspective.

The service is primarily to be used for signposting criminal and suspicious activity. If you want to complain about a gambling business, you should follow the process outlined on our How to complain webpage instead.

The Commission’s confidential telephone service to anonymously report criminal or suspicious activity will continue to operate as usual.
