Mr Green Gets Danish Regulatory Warning

This story was published more than 2 years ago.

Popular online gaming brand Mr Green has been issued a warning by Danish gaming regulator Spillemyndigheden after the operator was found to have had a failure related to sourcing player funds.

According to the regulator, a young player deposited DKK325,000 on the site over a year's time, and that Mr Green management didn't have knowledge on where the funds originated from. The operator did do research on the player, but that assessment was found to be erroneous, as the deposits exceeded disposable income.

Spillemyndigheden said that this erroneous information meant that the operator didn't meet the country's anti-money laundering standards. That said, the regulator didn't pursue a fine, as Mr Green has put in place new procedures to better its due diligence procedures. The warning does state that additional breaches of the Money Laundering Act could result in fines or reporting to law enforcement authorities.

No comment from Mr Green was available as of press time.
