Genesis will be working extremely closely with the UKGC to resolve this matter as soon as possible.
Until then, all UK players will be informed via on and off-site communications which include a pop-up notification and email.
Rest assured that we will do everything in our power to resolve this issue, but should you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact your affiliate manager.
