This would be implicit consent, not explicit. It's also not a choice, it's made compulsory from the start. The regulations are stricter when it comes to a compulsory consent needed in order to access the service. It's going to be a question as to whether it is "necessary" to share the data, or whether it was done for the company's gain.
This won't be tested unless someone affected lodges a complaint or makes an enquiry with the ICO.
Of course it was 'necessary' as you would be the first to complain if you had lost comp points or tourney placings etc. as a result of GoWild leaving the UK market.
