The emergence of Internet gambling and its exponential growth has been one of the most significant and contentious developments in gambling over the past two decades. This chapter focuses in particular on recent United Kingdom (UK) experience, particularly the Gambling Act 2005, and seeks to examine the UK?s position in Internet gambling. It analyses responsible gambling programs in order to better safeguard consumer rights and interests. The term ?problem gambling? has been used by many researchers, bodies, and organisations, to describe gambling that compromises, disrupts or damages family life, employment, personal or recreational pursuits. Corporate social responsibility in gambling is the operators promoting the well-being and the minimisation of harm among gambling consumers and the wider community bearing in mind customers as key stakeholders.
