Financial penalty


Following the submission of a key event by DZBT Limited (“the Licensee”) and an investigation outside of a Licence review, the Gambling Commission (“the Commission”) found that the Licensee failed to comply with: 

  • Social Responsibility Code Provision (“SRCP”) 3.5.3 (1), which states: “Licensees must have and put into effect procedures for self-exclusion and take all reasonable steps to refuse service or to otherwise prevent an individual who has entered a self-exclusion agreement from participating in gambling.”
  • SRCP 3.5.3 (2), which states: “Licensees must, as soon as practicable, take all reasonable steps to prevent any marketing material being sent to a self-excluded customer.”

The failure to comply with a SRCP is a breach of a licence condition by virtue of section 82(1) of the Gambling Act 2005 (“the Act”). 

In line with the Commission’s Licensing, compliance and enforcement policy statement and the Statement of principles for determining financial penalties, the Commission has decided to impose a financial penalty of £700.00 under section 121(1) of the Act.

The Licensee has also voluntarily divested itself of the Gross Gambling Yield (GGY) which occurred as a result of its failings in the sum of £3,638.20.

Commission Officials note the remedial action taken by the Licensee and acknowledge that the Licensee has co-operated with the Commission throughout the investigation.
