This week it was revealed that the UK Gambling Commission moved to suspend the gaming license of Nektan, making the group's software and sites unable to be offered within the country for the time being.
Nektan was found to have breached the conditions of its gaming license after a review by the regulator, although the exact reasoning for the suspension wasn't given.
A statement by the UKGC on the matter said in part: "The suspension follows an ongoing section 116 review into the operator, as we suspect Nektan (Gibraltar) Limited has breached conditions of its licence, that it is unsuitable to carry on the licensed activities, and that the licensed activities are being or have been carried on in a manner which is inconsistent with the licensing objectives. We therefore consider it appropriate to suspend the licence with immediate effect pending the conclusion of the review or until such time as the operator can satisfy the Commission it is operating compliantly."
Nektan held a casino and bingo license through the country, and any sites that it operated under are dictated to stop operation in the UK. The operator has been instructed to continue issuing payouts to players. Those who have a balance with the company are urged to get their funds withdrawn immediately.
