Sheriff Gaming Responds To Alderney Suspension

Internet wagering software developer Sheriff Gaming has commented on its license suspension by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, noting that it is disappointed by the regulator's decision but will comply.

Sheriff's parent company Bubble Group issued the statement in which it said that it will appear for a hearing scheduled by the AGCC on October 29th in London. The group said that it is looking forward to "formally comment to the events that have occurred over the last few months."

The AGCC formally suspended the Netherlands based firm's betting license earlier this week amid an investigation into possible illegal activity by three of the group's executives, who were investigated by Dutch authorities for helping unlicensed betting sites operate.

The Bubble Group said that they are unhappy with the suspension, noting that their license was suspended "before any true and hard facts have been presented by the AGCC."

The statement also went on to profess its innocence by noting: "The management of Bubble would like to reiterate that on 29th August 2013 and 6th September 2013 respectively, the District Attorney wrote to inform Bubble that there can be no doubt that Bubble's activities, its development of games and licensing of these games are entirely legal."
