A Gambling Commission investigation has revealed that Paddy Power Betfair (PPB) failed to adequately interact with customers who were displaying signs of problem gambling and failed to adequately carry out anti-money laundering checks.
Two of the customers were using PPB’s betting exchange and a further three were gambling using the operator’s online presence and retail premises.
The Gambling Commission has found, and PPB accept, that
PPB breached social responsibility code provision 3.4.1(1) which relates to customer interaction, when five customers were able to gamble extensively despite indicators of problem gambling
PPB failed to act in accordance with our guidance on anti-money laundering, The Prevention of Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism - Guidance for remote and non-remote casinos
The Commission has agreed a divestment of £95,444 and payment in lieu of financial penalty of £910,993.
