An online gambling business must pay £685,000 after a Commission investigation revealed social responsibility and money laundering failures.

The United Kingdom Gaming Commission (UKGC) has issued online gaming operator Greentube Alderney, operating admiralcasino.co.uk and bellfruitcasino, a £685,000 fine after failing to comply to anti money laundering and social responsibility regulations.

The operator will furthermore undergo independent auditing for failures which occurred between December 2019 and November 2020.

The UKGC detailed that the operator failed to:

  • interact with customers in a way which minimises the risk of customers experiencing gambling harms
  • conduct adequate assessments of the risk of money laundering
  • have in place and implement appropriate policies, procedures and controls to prevent money laundering
  • to alert the Commission to an event that could have a significant impact on the nature or structure of a licensee’s business

Helen Venn, UKGC Executive Director, said:

“Compliance with Commission rules aimed at keeping people safe and gambling crime free is not optional. We will always take firm action against those operators who fail to meet the high standards we expect for consumers in Britain.”
