The Gambling Commission has suspended the operating licence of BGO Entertainment Limited (operating licence no 039533-R-319369-021) as it carries out a review under section 116 of the Gambling Act 2005 (the Act).

The review and consequent suspension follows concerns that activities may have been carried out contrary to the Act, not in accordance with conditions of their licence and that the Licensee may be unsuitable to carry on the licensed activities. Failing to protect consumers was a key consideration in the suspension decision.

Pursuant to section 118 (2) of the Act (opens in a new tab), the Commission has determined to suspend the above operating licence.

We have made it clear to the operator that during the course of the suspension, we expect it to focus on treating consumers fairly and keeping them fully informed of any developments which impact them.

The suspension does not prevent the operator from allowing consumers to access their accounts and withdrawing funds. BGO Entertainment Limited – which operates bgo.com, m.bgo.com, powerspins.com, vegasluck.com and chilli.com – can be contacted through its websites.

The suspension takes place immediately.
