UKCG’s official media release on the licence suspension of Genesis Global
UKCG’s official media release on the licence suspension stated:
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 000-045235-R-324169-010 Combined Remote Operating Licence – Real Event Betting, Virtual Betting, and Casino held by Genesis Global Limited whilst that review takes place. This is due to a number of compliance issues. We suspect that Genesis Global 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.
For any players concerned over funds they may have tied up in accounts at any of the aforementioned casinos, the Commission allowed for the withdrawal of customer funds, adding:
We have instructed the operator to facilitate customers accessing their accounts to withdraw funds and advise customers not to place any bets through the above websites.
At present the above represents the only information available on the subject. We will update this report as and when we have a clearer picture of events.
