The Gambling Commission has suspended the operating licence of bet-at-home.com Internet Limited as it carries out a review under section 116 of the Gambling Act 2005.
Gambling Commission Executive Director Tim Miller spoke at the CMS Conference on Wednesday 6 July 2022.
New consumer protection guidance, which remote gambling businesses are required to take account of, will help them comply with new customer interaction rules coming into effect on 12 September.
In the current context, including the rise in the cost of living, it is more important than ever for operators to meet these requirements to identify customers at risk of harm.
On 15 March, the Gambling Commission announced Allwyn Entertainment UK as Preferred Applicant for the fourth National Lottery licence.
The Commission subsequently received legal proceedings in relation to the competition process, placing an automatic suspension on our ability to formally award the licence to Allwyn.
