UKGC Suspends Goldchip Limited's Gaming Licence

This story was published more than 1 year ago.

This week the UK Gambling Commission announced that they've suspended the remote gambling licence of Goldchip Limited related to concerns that the operator violated the UK's Gambling Act 2005.

The suspension is pending an investigation by the UKGC, and specific details weren't revealed, but the regulator did say that Goldchip is being looked at for social responsibility and anti-money laundering failures.

The suspension is effective immediately, and Goldchip has updated its website reflecting the suspension and is not allowing current play.

Regarding the suspension the UKGC wrote: "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."

We're following the story and will update readers as we learn more.
