The Gambling Commission has suspended the operating licence of Bet-at-home.com Internet Limited as it carries out a review triggered by suspected social responsibility and anti-money laundering failings.

The suspension was announced and took place immediately on July 7, 2022.

The Gambling Commission said in a statement: “We have made it clear to the operator that during the course of the suspension, we expect it to focus on treating consumers fairly and keeping them fully informed of any developments which impact them.”

The suspension does not prevent the operator from allowing consumers to access their accounts and withdrawing funds, according to the Gambling Commission.

Bet-at-home.com Internet Limited operates the bet-at-home.com, bet-at-home.co.uk and uk.bet-at-home.com websites.

These websites have already been updated to include a message for visitors that its licence has been suspended “until further notice”.

“You are not able to register, bet, play or deposit with us at the moment. Please rest assured that you can withdraw your funds at any time and pending winnings will be added to your account,” according to the website message.

The latest announcement follows a string of bad news for the operator.

The German Joint Gaming Authority of the Federal States (GGL) told Bet-at-home.com that its deposit limits must be complied with in their entirety by July 1, 2022.

The operator warned that complying with the deposit limit could see gross betting and gaming revenue achievable in Germany “decline significantly”.

In June 2022, Bet-at-home.com also stopped access to the Swiss market after losing a legal battle at the Supreme Court.

In October 2021, Bet-at-Home.com said it was temporarily withdrawing its online casino operations in Austria, due to legal claims for reimbursement of player losses.
