UKGC orders disclosure of election bets over £20

The UK Gambling Commission has reportedly ordered operators to share all bets worth £20 or more on the forthcoming general election, with Nick Mason being the fourth Conservative implicated in the regulator’s probe.

The issue surrounding politicians betting on a July election has grown since parliamentary candidate Craig Williams became the first person confirmed in the investigation earlier this month.

The Sunday Times identified Nick Mason, the Tories’ senior data officer, as the fourth Conservative involved in the probe.

The investigation by the regulator covers more people than those who have been publicly named. The inquiry also includes an unnamed Metropolitan police officer who was part of Rishi Sunak’s protection unit.

Laura Saunders, who is running for the Bristol North West seat on July 4, was the second Tory to be announced, followed by her husband Tony Lee, the Conservatives’ director of campaigning.

According to The Sunday Times, Mason allegedly placed small bets of less than £100 but could have earned thousands of pounds. According to Gambling Commission regulations, utilizing sensitive information to obtain an unfair advantage when betting could qualify as a crime.
