During the Cheltenham festival (15 - 18 March 2016), TGP Europe Limited (TGP) and Fesuge Limited (Fesuge) (part of a single group of companies) promoted bonus offers on four of their remote gambling brands: FUN88, TLCBet, 12Bet and 138.com (138.com operated by Fesuge). The brands offered bonuses for new sign ups and for existing customers. None of the brands allowed customers to have multiple accounts. TGP and Fesuge subsequently suspended over 5000 due to concerns relating to suspected bonus abuse. This led to a number of complaints to be made to the Commission and the Independen Betting Adjudication Service (IBAS).
TGP and Fesuge accepted that they did not make it clear to customers, and had not included a specific provision in their terms, that an existing customer could not sign up and take advantage of the bonuses for new sign ups. TGP acknowledged that they that their handling of the case was inefficient and accepted that their terms were unclear, ambiguous and did not provide a clear definition of bonus abuse.
TGP and Fesuge did not financially benefit from the non-compliance. Stakes to all customers affected, whether or not they won or lost their subsequent bets were refunded. The breach resulted in a review of their business that led to a number of changes being implemented by them.
