The LGA added that existing legislation, specifically consumer legislation, may not be sufficient to address this market.

Hence, a consultation period is being set up to gather feedback and answer any queries that may arise. Feedback from the gaming community and other indirect stakeholders may be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by latest February 4th 2015.
