UKGC Suspends BGO Entertainment

Today the UK Gambling Commission announced that they've suspended the license of operator BGO Entertainment Limited, effective immediately.

The suspension is in effect while the regulator conducts a review of the company, pursuant to section 116 of the Remote Gambling Act of 2005. The UKGC has only indicated that the operator appears to have not been acting in accordance with regulations that were set forth in the country. The key factor in the suspension was reportedly BGO failing to protect consumers.

The announcement from the UKGC read in part:

"We have made it clear to the operator that during the course of the suspension, we expect it to focus on treating consumers fairly and keeping them fully informed of any developments which impact them.

"The suspension does not prevent the operator from allowing consumers to access their accounts and withdrawing funds. BGO Entertainment Limited - which operates bgo.com, m.bgo.com, powerspins.com, vegasluck.com and chilli.com - can be contacted through its websites."

Oh wow, that must be painful for BGO, given the fact that UK is their main market, if I remember correctly. Interested to see if they'll try to appeal this decision.

From memory they have been fined at least once, maybe twice, before by the UKGC. So I guess the regulator has had enough and seems to think that the message is not sinking in.

Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing at a new casino.
