On 18 January 2017, the Competition and Markets Authority provided an update on its on-going investigation into potential breaches of consumer law in the online gaming industry.

In light of information provided by consumers since the investigation was launched in October 2016, the CMA has written to additional operators not included in the initial scope of the investigation and sought further information on free bet promotions.

The CMA intends to provide a further update in April 2017.
