The fine comes after a compliance assessment of the company. Three customer accounts were examined, with the regulator finding one player didn't have any responsible gaming interactions with a punter who won £50,000 and lost it all before depositing more and losing even more money. The company also accepted old evidence of a customer that deposited more than £1 million.
The group was given a £3 million fine, although it's not being called as such. Instead, the company will pay the amount to the National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms. They'll also pay the £10,349.77 that the UKGC spent to conduct the investigation. Mr Green will also conduct additional assessments into 130 high-risk accounts.
Commenting on the issue UKGC Executive Director Richard Watson said, "Our investigation uncovered systemic failings in respect of both Mr Green's social responsibility and AML controls which affected a significant number of customers across its online casinos.
"Consumers in Britain have the right to know that there are checks and balances in place which will help keep them safe and ensure gambling is crime-free - and we will continue to crack down on operators who fail in this area."
