07 September 2015

The Commission carried out an investigation into the weaknesses in anti-money laundering controls at Rank Digital (Alderney) Ltd (Rank Digital). As a result, Rank Group Plc (on behalf of Rank Digital), proposed a voluntary settlement accepted by the Commission in relation to these failings, comprising of:

  • The establishment of a critical review of anti-money laundering and social responsibility controls across its terrestrial and remote businesses, led by an external party
  • The publication of a public statement to draw the issues to the attention of the wider industry to provide an opportunity to others to improve
  • An agreement to disseminate learning from the shortcomings identified through seminars or
    other forms of direct engagement with other gambling operators. The National Casino Forum has agreed to help facilitate the sharing of the casino-related learning
  • Rank Group wished to demonstrate that it has not profited as a result of the compliance failures identified in both cases. It has therefore taken a total of £950,000 out of the business to apply to agreed socially responsible purposes

For more information, please see our public statement which can be found on the Gambling Commission website .

Search help

If your search does not return results try using just a single word to search (for example instead of ‘Acorn and Horsetree Betting’ just search for ‘Acorn’).

Avoid words that could apply to lots of operators. For example limited, bookmakers, London or casino.

Searching with a licence number

If you have a licence number from an operator and want to locate the public register record you will need to do the following.

A licence number is usually in the following format 000-012345-N-987654-001. You need to search for the numbers in the first block of 6 digits, removing any leading zeros where they exist. So in this example search for the reference 12345
