The American Gambling Commission announced that Betway would be required to pay out a fine valued at £11.6 million. This follows after the AGC revealed that this sportsbook had failed to provide VIP Customers with secure environments. Investigations were held to review the high-spending accounts of registered customers to Betway. It’d be revealed that the Gambling Commission located cases of money laundering, which was prompted after Betway refused to implement their “Social Responsibility Protocols”.
These protocols demand that each instance of a substantial payout must be reviewed by Betway, which ensures illegal actions aren’t followed through. One of the most notable cases revealed by the American Gambling Commission saw £187,000.00 in winnings ignored by Betway. That instance was minimal in comparison to the overall valuations laundered throughout the last four years. The AGA anticipated that upwards of £8 million would’ve been lost as actual payments for VIP Clients operating within the legal confines of Betway.
Lacking in selective details regarding these money laundering cases; the American Gambling Commission believes that upwards of £5.8 million was illegally laundered through Betways operations. Criminal institutions like the Federal Bureau of Investigations compiled evidence from the AGA, with there now being beliefs that Betway funnelled money to support criminal organizations in rural countries. This provides minimal trust amongst their honourable VIP Customers, with their safeties being at liberty through the engagement of criminal organizations. The American Gambling Commission noted that after Betway refused to provide details reports regarding their business activities, they were forced to act against the notable brand. It’s not known how this confirmed fine will affect the operational integrity of Betway.
