Online Casino Fined £6m Enjoyed Top Safety Code


Gamesys company was given highest possible safety rating by leading UK charity GamCare during failures for AML & Social Responsibility 

LEADING UK media outlet The Telegraph picked up the Gambling IQ exclusive report on how a leading online gambling operator fined £6m for welfare failings was given the highest possible safety rating by an industry-funded charity. Gamesys, which runs a string of online brands such as Jackpotjoy and Virgin Games, was punished by the Gambling Commission in January for breaches that took place between November 2021 and July 2022. During that period, Gamesys was given an advanced level 3 safety certificate by the charity GamCare, which runs the National Gambling Helpline. This is the highest possible safety rating and covers a two-year period to February 2024. A snapshot from the Gambling IQ report featuring the news report is pictured below and a link to the Telegraph: 

After our exclusive story, the board of trustees at GamCare announced that the Safer Gambling Standard will be revised to work under a new structure outside of the gambling treatment, support, and intervention charity.
