UKGC suspends bet-at-home with immediate effect

Following concerns that activities may have been carried out against the Gaming Act

The United Kingdom Gambling Commission has suspended the operating licence of bet-at-home.com Internet Limited (operating licence no 039091-R-319322-006) as it carries out a review under section 116 of the Gambling Act 2005 (the Act).

In accordance with section 118 (2) of the Act the Commission has determined to suspend the above operating licence. The suspension takes place immediately.

The review, and consequent suspension, follows concerns that activities may have been carried out contrary to the Act, not in accordance with conditions of their licence and that the Licensee may be unsuitable to carry on the licensed activities. Suspected social responsibility and anti-money laundering failings were key considerations in the suspension decision.

The UKGC, adds: “We have made it clear to the operator that during the course of the suspension, we expect it to focus on treating consumers fairly and keeping them fully informed of any developments which impact them.

“The suspension does not prevent the operator from allowing consumers to access their accounts and withdrawing funds. Bet-at-home.com Internet Limited – which operates bet-at-home.com, bet-at-home.co.uk and uk.bet-at-home.com – can be contacted through its website.”
