Havnt looked at the link but I bet its nothing to do with actual money laundering, more likely players depositing money stolen from employers.
which is exactly what the money laundering laws are there for. To prevent anyone using any funds that are not legitimate, you know, like stolen from employers. Maybe if you bothered to read some links you might understand that.

UKGC should just make it so SOW gets done when you sign up as with verification

I know of a few local casinos where if you’re of certain occupations/unemployed they won’t allow you entry
Surely a central system like GamStop can be created where they run initials checks before depositing about your occupation/affordability, I.e upload a payslip/proof of income and work out what is ‘normal’ expenditure (maybe using open banking as well or something) then if anything goes over that limit in future, then you start doing further checks I.e have you changed job, windfall, whatever
then you’re taking care of AML, RG and SOW all at the same time

Fact is, they still allowed £3k of deposits -after-requesting SOW documents. It wouldn’t be hard to just implement a system to take care of all this at the start. Commission needs to step up and sort it otherwise situations like this will go on indefinitely

Well not really, a SoW is only any good on the day it's done. Someone could lose their job the next day and start shoplifting to fund their gambling, staying within the same spending patterns as before.
Problem with having it done by one place is the GDPR to start with, secondly, the law clearly states the business is responsible for these checks. Who should be held responsible if the people doing the checks get it wrong?
You would also have to have every single casino/bookie reporting deposits and withdrawals back to them.

I know it lol.
But I get your point totally.
Also checked my credit rating today and found loads of searches since 2019 from L and L and white hat.
Would of been nice to have been informed of this as it can affect your credit rating.

Soft searches or not.still onfile with the credit agency that casinos have checked
Info on you
That has no relevance as YOU are the only person who sees it plus the fact yous agree to said searches on sign up..
The simple solution if it annoys you that much is to cease signing up to new accounts not that will stop previous casinos carrying out further searches to stay within their licence conditions.

LeoVegas allowed me to deposit £500, £500, £500, £500, £500 and cash out £0 without any verification, funny that ;)

Anyway after struggling to even get a 50x bonus on all these supposedly huge potential games (Razor Shark, Jammin Jars, Napoleon, Deadwood, Lil' Devil, you name it I tried it!) I decided enough was enough after that and my next deposit was a 1 year exclusion on GamStop :)

Yes and is has ended unfortunately. Gaz passed SOW process. Unfortunately we did require two extra documents delaying the process, but I'm happy he was willing to cooperate and I just pushed the process towards our MLRO when I could.

Money is In back in my account this afternoon.

Jan has bent over backwoods to try and sort this. Fair play to him, but he did advise to compile with what they ask


I would not have my money now without Jan, But his magic wand only extends so far.

Without him my money would still be tied up.

I will add the whole story with Jan's additives
Later in the week

Simple story was I sold my posh caravan and bought a 6 berth motor home. And money went in and out of my account.

I made a profit of £3,000on the caravan and they had my bank statements to seeb I had transferred thousands so had a big stakes gamble
