SkillOnNet hit with £305,000 fine over AML and social responsibility breaches


Skill On Net Limited will pay £305,150 after a UK Gambling Commission investigation revealed social responsibility and anti-money laundering failures.

The operator – which runs 50 websites – will pay the money as part of a settlement with the Commission. All £305,150 will go to socially responsible causes.

This investigation followed the commencement of a section 116 regulatory review of Skill on Net Limited (the Licensee), Combined Remote Operating Licence number: 039326-R-319358-050. The regulatory review found failings in the Licensee’s processes which were aimed at safer gambling and preventing Money Laundering (ML).

Operators are expected to consider the issues outlined below and review their own practices to identify and implement improvements in respect of the management of customers’ accounts.
