British Gambling Commission suspends Nektan’s B2C licence

The British Gambling Commission has suspended Nektan’s remote operating licence while it conducts a review.

UK.- The Gambling Commission has suspended Gibraltar-based Nektan’s B2C remote operating licence over suspected breaches of licence conditions.

Nektan’s UK-facing B2C arm, which was licensed to operate online bingo and casino gaming, was sold by administrators to Grace Media after the original business went into administration last year.

The Gambling Commission didn’t say whether what had led to the licence suspension happened under the old or new ownership.

The Gambling Commission said it would carry out a review of the operator’s licence because it suspected Nektan was  “unsuitable to carry on the licensed activities, and that the licensed activities are being or have been carried on in a manner which is inconsistent with the licensing objectives”. 

The regulator said Nektan’s licence would remain suspended until it has concluded its review or “until such time as the operator can satisfy the Commission it is operating compliantly“.

It said: “We have made it clear to the operator that it must communicate effectively with its customers and that the suspension does not prevent it paying out winnings.”
