‘The Commission found that Nichola Aitken t/a Regency Racing (the Licensee), was operating in breach of a specific condition attached to its ancillary remote operating licence which states:
“This licence is subject to the conditions that:
(c) with regards the provision of facilities for betting in circumstances in which each bet made or accepted pursuant to this licence occurs only by means of a telephone or by email, the licensee may only generate an annual gross gambling yield
(i) which is less than the annual gross gambling yield generated by activities authorised by the non-remote operating licence, and
(ii) does not in any event exceed £550,000.”
In line with the Commission’s Licensing, compliance and enforcement policy statement, the Indicative sanctions guidance and the Statement of principles for determining financial penalties, the Commission has decided to impose a financial penalty of £12,000 under section 121(1) of the Gambling Act 2005.
The Licensee has co-operated with the Commission throughout the investigation’.
