UKGC: Regulatory action against Greentube Alderney Limited
An online gambling business must pay £685,000 after a Commission investigation revealed social responsibility and money laundering failures.
Greentube Alderney – which operates admiralcasino.co.uk and bellfruitcasino – will also undergo extensive independent auditing for the failures which occurred between December 2019 and November 2020.
The Commission investigation revealed that the operator failed to:
interact with customers in a way which minimises the risk of customers experiencing gambling harms
conduct adequate assessments of the risk of money laundering
have in place and implement appropriate policies, procedures and controls to prevent money laundering
to alert the Commission to an event that could have a significant impact on the nature or structure of a licensee’s business
Helen Venn, Commission Executive Director, said: “Compliance with Commission rules aimed at keeping people safe and gambling crime free is not optional. We will always take firm action against those operators who fail to meet the high standards we expect for consumers in Britain.”
A public statement reveals more details of the failings.
