The UK Gambling Commission has suspended the B2C license of online gambling content and services provider EveryMatrix.
The Gambling Commission published on its official website that it has initiated a review under Section 116 of the Gambling Act of 2005 into EveryMatrix Software Limited.
The Gambling Commission also said that investigation was launched after “compliance activity which included examining [EveryMatrix’s] customer interaction framework.”
There has been no further information provided by the UKGC as such.
Following the suspension of the license, EveryMatrix would not be able to provide B2C services. The gambling services provider would not be offering real event betting or betting on virtual events and operating an online casino in the UK.
While the company’s B2C license has been suspended, its B2B business remains unaffected.
Recently, the 1xBet site was pulled off from the UK market after the UK Gambling Commission launched an investigation into the online gambling website.
The UKGC instigated a review under s116 of the Gambling Act into FSB Technology (UK) Limited which was the gaming technology partner of 1xBet.
As per the Section 116 of the Gambling Act 2005, the UKGC is authorized to review gambling licenses if there is a complaint that the company is involved in operations which do not come under the scope of the license agreement.
FSB Tech said that it had “voluntarily suspended activities on its Blackbet website” but that this suspension “will not prevent the operator from paying out customers.”
