Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

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.

Finnish Committee Says Gaming Payment Blocks Could Violate Article 15 and 18 of Finland’s Constitution

Along with Norway, Finland is one of the few countries in Europe to retain a state-controlled monopoly system for gaming. However, a government committee has suggested it sees no justification for protecting that.

Analysing a proposed amendment to Finland’s Lotteries Act which would allow for payment blocking against non-licensed operators, the Constitutional Committee has concluded that there are no grounds to protect the monopoly of the state-controlled operator Veikkaus.

The bill filed in September would allow Finland to block payments to all gaming operators other than Veikkaus. Payment providers would have to implement the ban from January 1, 2023.

However, the Constitutional Committee argued that the payment block would be “a far-reaching restriction of fundamental rights” and could not be justified by the argument that it aimed to prevent gambling harm.

It said such a block could violate Article 15 of Finland’s constitution, which covers the protection of property, and Article 18, which guarantees the freedom to conduct business.

The Committee has asked the government to investigate whether “less intrusive methods” could be explored to achieve the desired goals.
