UK – Addison Global has license suspended by UKGCBy Phil - 21 February 2020
The Gambling Commission have commenced a review under section 116 of the Gambling Act 2005 (the Act) and, under section 118 of the Act, have decided to suspend Operating License No 050970-R-328650-008 Combined Remote Operating License – Real Event and Virtual Betting Casino held by Addison Global Limited whilst that review takes place.
The Commission said: “We have decided to commence a review because we suspect that Addison Global Limited has breached a condition of the license (section 120(1)(b) and is unsuitable to carry on the licensed activities (section 120(1)(d) of the Act). We consider it appropriate to suspend the license with immediate effect pending the conclusion of the review.”
The license suspension makes it illegal for Addison Global Limited to offer gambling services via its moplay.co.uk website in Britain but does not prevent the operator from returning any outstanding balances to customers.
The Commission added: “In accordance with section 118(4)(c) of the Act the Licensee is authorized to settle any outstanding winning bets that it has accepted in reliance of the above operating licenses and return any outstanding balances to customers. We have informed Addison Global Limited that we expect clear messaging to consumers regarding their accounts.”
