Hillside (UK Gaming) ENC

Account number:
Decision date:
4 April 2024
Payment in lieu of financial penalty, Commission costs and Public statement


The Gambling Commission commenced a section 116 regulatory review of Hillside (UK Gaming) ENC (the Licensee) - Remote Bingo and Casino Operating Licence Number 055149- R-331499-002 - following a compliance assessment conducted in March 2022.

The regulatory review found failings in the Licensee’s processes aimed at preventing Money Laundering (ML) and protecting individuals from being harmed or exploited by gambling.

The Licensee failed to comply with the following Licence Conditions and Codes of Practice (LCCP):

  • paragraph 2 of licence condition 12.1.1, requiring operators to comply with the prevention of ML and Terrorist Financing (TF), between May 2021 and July 2022
  • licence condition 12.1.2, requiring operators based in foreign jurisdictions to comply with the Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds (Information of the Payer) Regulations 2017 (the 2017 Regulations), between May 2021 and July 2022
  • paragraphs 1b and 1c of Social Responsibility Code Provision (SRCP) 3.4.1, requiring licensees to interact with customers in a way which minimises the risk of customers experiencing harms associated with gambling, between October 2021 and September 2022.

Taking into account remedial action taken by the Licensee and in line with our Statement of principles for licensing and regulation, the Licensee will pay a total of £343,035 in lieu of a financial penalty.
