Bet-at-Home Has UK Licence Suspended

Online gaming operator Bet-at-Home has had its UK gaming licence suspended by the UK Gambling Commission while the regulator conducts a review of the company's operations.

The move comes days after the company suspended its UK affiliate program, and a day after a company representative stated that Bet-at-Home was not leaving the market. The licence was suspended due to what the UKGC says are possible "activities may have been carried out contrary to the Gambling Act 2005". Among the concerns are anti-money laundering and social responsibility failings on the part of Bet-at-Home, according to the UKGC.

The suspension is effective immediately, and customers are urged to get funds out of their accounts as soon as possible. The Gambling Commission said it expects the company to keep players up to date and get players the money they're owed.

In a statement, 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. Bet-at-home.com Internet Limited - which operates bet-at-home.com, bet-at-home.co.uk and uk.bet-at-home.com - can be contacted through its website."

Casino Listings News is awaiting updates on the story and will keep readers informed as appropriate.

Ouch, that's a big brand to have their license suspended. Will be interested to see how it plays out.

I agree with you Slim! They've been around for a long time too, but I guess their operations didn't satisfy UKGC.
