The United Kingdom’s historic vote to leave the European Union has sent shockwaves throughout British and European politics, with warnings of a significant impact on an array of industries, including gambling.

Meanwhile, there are also question marks for Gibraltar, the British territory and prominent online licensing hub that will also see its relationship with Europe redrawn as a result of the “Brexit” referendum.
