Casino 36 Ordered to Undergo Extra Training by Gambling Commission

Land based casino group, Casino 36, have been ordered by the Gambling Commission to undergo extra training as part of a penalty package for money laundering and social responsibility failures.

An investigation by the UKGC found that the casino had failed  to ensure adequate customer Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD), Source of Funds (SOF) and Source of Wealth (SOW) checks were carried out for 33 customers.

Richard Watson, Commission Executive Director, said: “As a result of Casino 36’s failings stolen money could have flowed unchecked through their casino and vulnerable customers were placed at risk of harm. This is simply not acceptable.”

“Operators have to understand their customer base. This can only be achieved if they know their customers and ask the right questions to meet both their anti-money laundering and social responsibility obligations.”
