Gambling Commission suspends two operator licenses, subsequently reinstating one

By Tim Poole

The Gambling Commission has suspended the license of two online operators with immediate effect, due to their failure to fully integrate the Gamstop self-exclusion scheme.

Dynamic, trading as Prophet, and Sportito had their licenses suspended, although Sportito’s suspension has been lifted since its subsequent integration; both operators remain under review.

In January, the Gambling Commission notified all licensed online operators they had to fully integrate with Gamstop by 31 March.

Dynamic’s license will remain suspended until the Commission is “satisfied the operator has fully integrated the Gamstop scheme and is fully compliant with license conditions.”

Neil McArthur, Gambling Commission CEO, said: “We have made it clear to operators we are ready and willing to use our powers to protect consumers, as this action demonstrates.

“Self-exclusion is an important tool to protect vulnerable consumers, which is why we made it compulsory for all online operators to be signed up to Gamstop by 31 March.

“One of the suspensions has now been lifted as the operator is now compliant. Our investigations into both operators continue.”
