Thanks Munk, I’ll keep that in mind. I was going to put on some long term bets on NBA title winner markets at a few sites so will be more careful with those.

Out of interest, what happens to a bookie outside of the UK who doesn't have a licence but still offers bets to punters in the UK?
One day you have it........Next it's AllGone
have to face the wrath of the almighty gambling commission???
department of culture and sport?
id imagine most of the offshore books that ignore america and still service us punters to happily take uk bets, pissing off america is a far more serious thing to do than to ignore britains laws
came as a bit of a suprise that pinny were binning us
same with sbo, id of thought that any books with advertising on football shirts would set up a uk version of their site or come to an agreement with a small operator who have a uk license that would be a front man for their uk operations
how come bet365 are now regulated in gibraltar? they changed from uk to gib at the start of the month
I don't know to be honest, if you're worried then the best thing to do is ask the operator directly then at least you have it in writing if worst comes to worst.

Indirectly they'd be supporting Gibraltar's pursuit of the UK gov in the courts as well.

I wish it was the IPSs' decision.

TPB blocking was only done by a limited number of UK ISPs.
Really hope they don't go down that route though, does have undertones of censorship. Not to mention the fact that, as with TPB, it will be ridiculously easy to get around.
