THE UKGC states:

We 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 Licence No 000-050185-R-328112-006 Combined Remote Operating Licence – Real Event and Virtual Betting Casino held by Stakers Limited whilst that review takes place. This is due to a number of compliance issues.

We suspect that Stakers Limited has breached a condition of the licence (section 116(2)(a) of the Act)) and is unsuitable to carry on the licensed activities (section 116(2)(c)(i)) of the Act). We therefore consider it appropriate to suspend the licence with immediate effect pending the conclusion of the review.

The licence suspension, effective from 4 March, makes it illegal for Stakers Limited to offer gambling services via its stakers.com website in Great Britain. For further information, customers are able to view the company’s terms and conditions through Outdated URL (Invalid). We have instructed the operator to facilitate customers accessing their accounts to withdraw funds and advise customers not to place any bets through the Stakers website.

If a customer has questions concerning their account we advise they contact the operator on [email protected].


This is the part of the gambling act breached:

116Review
(1)The Commission may in relation to operating licences of a particular description review—

(a)the manner in which licensees carry on licensed activities, and

(b)in particular, arrangements made by licensees to ensure compliance with conditions attached under section 75, 77 or 78.

(2)The Commission may review any matter connected with the provision of facilities for gambling as authorised by an operating licence if the Commission—

(a)has reason to suspect that activities may have been carried on in purported reliance on the licence but not in accordance with a condition of the licence,

(b)believes that the licensee, or a person who exercises a function in connection with or is interested in the licensed activities, has acquired a conviction of a kind mentioned in section 71(1), or

(c)for any reason—

(i)suspects that the licensee may be unsuitable to carry on the licensed activities, or

(ii)thinks that a review would be appropriate.

(3)For the purposes of subsection (2)(c) a reason—

(a)may, in particular, relate to the receipt of a complaint about the licensee's activities;

(b)need not relate to any suspicion or belief about the licensee's activities.

(4)Before commencing a review of an operating licence under subsection (2) the Commission shall—

(a)notify the licensee, and

(b)inform him of the procedure to be followed in the conduct of the review.

(5)In conducting a review of an operating licence under subsection (2) the Commission—

(a)shall give the licensee an opportunity to make representations, and

(b)may give other persons an opportunity to make representations.

Shady???

As dodgy as a Barrymore pool party with Jimmy Savile as cloakroom attendant and Boy George and Philip Schofield on lifeguard duty.

How can you take the idiots seriously when they send a flyer like that, which simply confirms to the UKGC and MGA what a bunch of tools they are?
