The UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) has suspended with immediate effect the online casino and betting operator license of EveryMatrix as part of a review of the company’s customer interaction framework.
Throughout the commission’s review, EveryMatrix would not be able to provide B2C services, including offering real event betting or betting on virtual events and operating an online casino, on the territory of the UK. However, the suspension of its B2C license would not affect the company’s B2B business, which means that it will be able to carry on with its activities of manufacturing and supplying software for the online gambling industry.
As a result, EveryMatrix is no longer serving players in Great Britain through the websites bookee.co.uk, pwrbet.com, fantasino.com, playfrank.com, sportingindex.com, westcasino.com, dragonaraonline.com, jetbull.com, mrwin.com and casinomulti.com.
British customers of the above sites will continue to have access to their accounts to withdraw funds at any time, and the operator will also honour any ante-post bets placed before the suspension.
In its update, the UKGC states that it has undertaken its suspension in-line with Section 18.2 of the Gambling Act 2005, which maintains that the Commission may move to suspend a licensee which it suspects may have breached conditions of its license or which it believes is no longer suitable to carry out licensed activities.
EveryMatrix issued a statement with comments on the UKGC review.
“EveryMatrix has fully cooperated with the UKGC throughout the license review and has communicated all the steps and actions it has taken to meet its social responsibility obligations, and we are hopeful that the suspension will be lifted shortly,” read the statement.Follow us on
