In the United Kingdom and the Gambling Commission regulator has launched an official investigation into Genesis Global Limited concerning unspecified allegations that the online casino operator may have breached the terms of its license.
The authority used an official Monday press release to state that the examination is being carried out under section 116 of the Gambling Act, which requires such an action to be conducted should an operator be suspected of being ‘unsuitable to carry out licensed activities’ due to, among other things, having any association with individuals possessing a criminal conviction.
The Gambling Commission revealed that its action is being accompanied by the immediate suspension of the license for iGaming held by Genesis Global Limited so as to preclude the Malta-based firm from offering its services to aficionados in Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The regulator moreover explained that this injunction went into effect from Monday and encompasses the operator’s twelve previously United Kingdom-authorized domains including CasinoJoy.com, GenesisCasino.com, Sloty.com and VegasHero.com.
The regulator furthermore detailed that Genesis is responsible for the iGaming sites: Casoola.com, SpinIt.com, CasinoCruise.com, CasinoPlanet.com, Kassu.com, CasinoGods.com, Pelaa.com and Spela.com with the suspension of its operating licence due to remain ‘pending the conclusion of the review.’
