Unibet - Selfexclusion no respected

Ruling

Found for the Casino - The self-exclusion at Maria was put in place before the UKGC license came into place and as such would not carry over to Unibet.

Hi janetteperu - welcome back!

Unfortunately there's nothing we could do to help you with this issue. This occurred significantly before the UKGC license came into place and as such the MGA license would be the relevant document at this point in time. At that time the MGA license did not require operators to carry over Self-Exclusions from one property to another. As such your Self-Exclusion at Maria would not have applied to Unibet.

Sorry we could not be of more help,

Hi janetteperu,

Self-exclusions put in place before the UKGC license came into place would not be subject to the UKGC license when it came in. As the self-exclusion was put in place before 2014 it does not fall under the purview of the UKGC license.

Sorry,

ThePOGG
