Edit: On 14 October, the Commission lifted the interim suspension of Genesis Global Limited’s licence. The operator can now offer gambling services to consumers in Great Britain. As a result of assurance provided by the operator the suspension has been lifted. The review into Genesis Global Limited’s licence continues.
We have commenced a review under section 116 of the Gambling Act 2005 (the Act) and, under section 118 of the Act, have decided to suspend Operating Licence No 000-045235-R-324169-010 Combined Remote Operating Licence – Real Event Betting, Virtual Betting, and Casino held by Genesis Global Limited whilst that review takes place. This is due to a number of compliance issues.
We suspect that Genesis Global Limited has breached a condition of the licence (section 116(2)(a) of the Act)) and is unsuitable to carry on the licensed activities (section 116(2)(c)(i)) of the Act). We therefore consider it appropriate to suspend the licence with immediate effect pending the conclusion of the review.
The licence suspension, effective from 20 July 2020, makes it illegal for Genesis Global Limited to offer gambling services via the following websites in Great Britain:
We have instructed the operator to facilitate customers accessing their accounts to withdraw funds and advise customers not to place any bets through the above websites.
If a customer has questions concerning their account we advise they contact the operator through the website they have used.
