The problems were so severe the commission had "seriously considered" suspending the firm's licence.

It’s not been published to the UKGC website yet, but wow. That fine is pretty big!

Rob :)
 
Haha, like they would ever get rid of their golden goose suspend their license.
How much of that 19.2m will the 'victims' see?

On another note, i hear the UKGC new years party will be extra awesome this year.
;)
I don't have the inclination to trace it, but I would bet my bottom dollar that the money goes to charitable organisations, focus groups and consultancy firms owned by the fat cats.
 
I wonder if ukgc use some sort of formula to determine the size of fine or just load up a random number generator, I mean surely they could've found a few more failures and rounded up to 20 big ones!
I think players when they lose large amount of money they report to UKGC
Failures identified by the regulator included allowing a customer to open a new account and spend £23,000 in 20 minutes, all without any checks.

Another social responsibility failure identified was failing to conduct any checks and allowing a different customer to open an account and spend £18,000 in 24 hours.

A third customer was able to spend £32,500 over two days, also without any checks.

Due to "ineffective controls" 331 customers were able to gamble with WHG (International) Limited despite having self-excluded themselves with Mr Green.

Anti-money laundering failures allowed customers to deposit large sums without appropriate checks. Sums deposited were as high as £70,134, which one customer spent and lost in a month.

Another lost £38,000 in five weeks while a third lost £36,000 in four days.

Yes they bring a lot of this on themselves, levels of gambling that a village idiot could probably guess might be a problem with ukgc rules.
 
Some players may be trying to pull a fast one, bet not one has reported the failings to the UKGC when they won.
I know some of the fine goes towards compensating sources of funds where fraud has been committed ie theft,
not sure if they compensate players when they deposit using legitmate funds and checks are not made or they were
self excluded.
Think the UKGC should be publishing full details of how the rest of the funds are spent,from what I have read, they dont
because they dont have to.
 
To add to this, these scum bags emailed customers yesterday that they had made TWEAKS to most net ent slots. I checked dead or alive out of curiosity. They have changed the r.t.p to 92 percent!!!

Utter scumbags.


Wow, they finally lowered the rtp on DOA to an unplayable 92%.
It's been showing 92% on the game info page that's available prior to loading the game (as justdoit's pic shows) for a long time now, yet (until now) was always showing 96.8% on the actual in game information page. Dumbasses gonna dumbass I s'pose.
