LeoVegas Hit With £627,000 Penalty Over Self-Exclusion, Ad Failures

Stockholm-listed LeoVegas has been stung with a £627,000 penalty package by the UK Gambling Commission over self-exclusion and advertising failures.

The online gambling operator had its UK licence reviewed for breaches including failure to return funds to 11,200 excluded customers, sending marketing material to 1,894 players who had previously self-excluded and allowing 413 previously excluded customers to gamble without speaking to them, or applying a 24-hour cooling off period, the commission said today.

LeoVegas also was responsible for 41 misleading advertisements, many of them by affiliates, the commission said.
