Online gambling businesses face regulatory action

20 January 2022

Two online casinos will pay a total of £1.3m after Gambling Commission investigations revealed social responsibility failures at the businesses.

Rank Digital Gaming (Alderney) Limited – trading as bellacasino.com, grosvenorcasino.com, meccabingo.com and meccagames.com – will pay a £700,557 regulatory settlement for social responsibility failures.

Annexio (Jersey) Limited – trading as lottogo.com – will pay £612,000 regulatory settlement for both social responsibility and money laundering failures.

Settlement money will go to the National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms.

More details of the failings of these businesses can be read in the public statements.

Helen Venn, Gambling Commission Executive Director, said: “We expect high standards from operators to ensure gambling in Britain is safe and crime free. Those businesses that fail to meet these standards will find themselves facing costly regulatory action.”
