UKGC Imposes £2M Fine on Videoslots Limited

Reading Time: < 1 minute


The UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) has imposed a fine of £2 million on Videoslots Limited for social responsibility and anti-money laundering failings.

The Social responsibility failures included:

  • not ensuring that customers displaying risk behaviours were identified as potentially experiencing harm because responsible gambling reviews were not undertaken as early, or as well, as they should have been.
  • failing to identify whether a customer was at risk of experiencing harm by not considering whether the amount being deposited or lost was appropriate.
  • allowing customers showing indicators of harm to continue to gamble significant amounts after interactions despite their behaviour continuing.

The Anti-Money Laundering (AML) failures included:

  • not implementing its own risk-based processes appropriately due to significant delays in conducting the required action, such as an AML review or request for source of funds following a trigger in its processes.
  • not fulfilling elements of customer due diligence as early as intended in accordance with its own risk-based approach.
  • not having sufficient AML analysts to process the volumes of data or undertake the AML account reviews in accordance with its procedures.

All £2 million of the settlement will go to socially responsible causes.
