Welcome to the RGA

The Remote Gambling Association became operational on 1st August 2005 as a result of a merger between the Association of Remote Gambling Operators (ARGO) and the Interactive Gaming, Gambling and Betting Association (IGGBA).

The RGA is the largest online gambling trade association in the world, representing most of the world’s largest licensed and stock market-listed remote gambling operators and software providers . We provide the remote gambling industry with a single voice on all issues of importance to regulators, legislators, and key decision-makers

Always Gamble Responsibly

Remote gambling is now a recognized, well regulated, mainstream leisure activity in which operators have created an enviroment where gambling is fair, safe, honest and fun. The RGA and our members want people to continue to enjoy gambling online as a recreational activity but it is important to remember that the key to staying safe and out of trouble is to "Always Gamble Responsibly"

We  produced the following leaflet  in association with GamCare to highlight some simple messages to keep in mind when you gamble online.
