UK – Rank Digital and Annexio fined for social responsibility failingsBy Phil - 21 January 2022
Two online casinos will pay a total of £1.3m after Gambling Commission investigations revealed social responsibility failures at the businesses.
Rank Digital Gaming (Alderney) Limited – trading as bellacasino.com, grosvenorcasino.com, meccabingo.com and meccagames.com – will pay a £700,557 regulatory settlement for social responsibility failures.
Annexio (Jersey) Limited – trading as lottogo.com – will pay £612,000 regulatory settlement for both social responsibility and money laundering failures.
Settlement money will go to the National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms.
Helen Venn, Gambling Commission Executive Director, said: “We expect high standards from operators to ensure gambling in Britain is safe and crime free. Those businesses that fail to meet these standards will find themselves facing costly regulatory action.”
