UKGC Penalizes Caesars Employees

This story was published more than 3 years ago.

Today it was revealed that Caesars Entertainment casino employees in the UK were sanctioned by the UK Gambling Commission for conduct related to compliance terms for their licenses.

An investigation into Caesars' operations led to a massive £13 million fine related to failings on letting problem gamblers blow millions at their properties. The investigation found that some of the company's PML license holders weren't fully compliant with their license terms. Seven received license warnings, two got official letters regarding licensing rules, and three holders surrendered licenses after being notified that they were under review.

Another holder had their license revoked due to unpaid fees to the UKGC.

This is the latest measure by the UKGC to ensure that casino operators and their employees are following the laws of the country. The regulator has doled out millions of pounds in fines over the years, and occasionally resorts to pulling gaming licenses for particularly egregious behaviors.
