Land-based casinos face regulatory action
30 March 2021
FIVE casinos have faced enforcement action following Gambling Commission assessments of their businesses.
All of the casinos were found to have failed to follow social responsibility and anti-money laundering rules set by the Commission and therefore the Commission put their operating licences under review.
Clockfair Limited and Shaftesbury Casino Limited will both pay a £260,000 regulatory settlement, Les Croupiers Casino Limited will pay a £202,500 regulatory settlement, Double Diamond Gaming Limited will pay a £247,000 regulatory settlement, and A&S Leisure Group Limited will receive a warning and pay a £377,340 fine.
Richard Watson, Commission Executive Director, said: “These failings were identified as part of our ongoing drive to raise standards across the whole gambling industry. Every single operator must ensure they are following rules that are in place to make gambling safer and prevent it being a source of crime.”
