The UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) has announced that it has fined VGC Leeds Limited, the company that runs Victoria Gate Casino, a total of £450,000 following an investigation that revealed social responsibility and anti-money laundering failures at the casino.

Helen Venn, Executive Director of UKGC, said: “These failings were identified as part of our ongoing drive to raise standards across the whole gambling industry.

“All operators should be very aware that we will not hesitate to take action against those who fail to follow rules that are in place to make gambling safer and prevent it being a source of crime.

“Consumer protection should be an operator’s main priority and we would advise every gambling business to read today’s public statement so they do not make the same mistakes as VGC.”
