Revocation of operating licence - Bet Butler Limited

18 September 2014

Following a review the Gambling Commission has revoked remote operating licence number 025718-R-307661-009 (Bet Butler Limited).

Having considered all the available information, the Commission decided to revoke the licence under sections 117(1)(f) and 119(1) of the Gambling Act 2005.

The reasons for the revocation are as follows:

  • the Licensee is unsuitable to carry out its licensed activities in a manner which is consistent with the licensing objectives
  • the Commission is not satisfied as to the competence of the Licensee
  • the Commission is not satisfied as to the financial circumstances of the Licensee
  • the Commission is of the view that one or more conditions of the licence has been breached.

Note to editors

  1. The Gambling Commission (the Commission) regulates gambling in the public interest alongside its co-regulators local licensing authorities. It does so by keeping crime out of gambling, by ensuring that gambling is conducted fairly and openly, and by protecting children and vulnerable people from being harmed or exploited by gambling. Subject to these overriding public protection objectives, as regulator of the National Lottery the Commission monitors and challenges Camelot to raise the maximum amount for good causes. The Commission also provides independent advice to government on gambling in Britain. Read more about what the Commission does.
