UK: Letter to online casino operators

118

January 5 2017

The Gambling Commission has written to all online casino operators to raise concerns about the sector’s approach to anti-money laundering and social responsibility.

In the letter we have set out how we expect operators to review all of their processes aimed at tackling money laundering and meeting their social responsibility obligations.

This follows a thematic review of the sector to consider how well operators are meeting their current obligations. Due to the serious nature of our findings, we have already begun investigations into 17 online operators, and are considering whether five of these require a licence review.
