GGPoker Fined £672,829 By UKGC

This story was published more than 1 year ago.

GGPoker operator NSUS Limited has been issued a fine by the UK Gambling Commission after an investigation found multiple social responsibility and anti-money laundering failures among the company.

The fine of £672,829 was justified after the investigation, as GGPoker didn't interact with customers that were deemed at-risk, and the group also sent marketing emails to 125 gamblers that were self-excluded. There were also failings in regard to anti-money laundering procedures, as the company didn't conduct proper risk assessments. They were also found to be lacking proper controls to prevent the crime.

The fine comes alongside a warning, which states that further lapses could result in additional fines as well put the group's licence at risk. The UK's Gambling Commission has been busy lately, having issued fines to the likes of Betway, as well as Betfred.

GGPoker holds licenses in both the UK and Malta, and offers its poker and casino services to punters around the globe.
