Gambling operator Bet-at-home.com has announced its withdrawal from the UK market following its licence suspension by the Gambling Commission.
Last week, the Gambling Commission suspended Bet-at-home.com Internet Limited’s licence over concerns that it may have been carrying out activities contrary to the Gambling Act 2005 and not in accordance with the conditions of its licence.
As a result, Bet-at-home.com and its bet-at-home.co.uk and uk.bet-at-home.com websites disabled new registrations and prohibited customers from making deposits, although users were able to sign in and access their accounts to withdraw funds.
In a statement shared on the Bet-at-home.com website, the gambling operator has confirmed that it will not be fighting its suspension and has instead decided to completely withdraw from the UK gambling market.
Bet-at-home.com’s statement reads: “Dear players, unfortunately, we’ve divided to surrender our operating licence granted by the UK Gambling Commission and to exit the British market.”
The operator then highlighted that customers will have until September 30th to request a withdrawal of any remaining balance at Bet-at-home.com by emailing the customer support team.
After September 30th, Bet-at-home.com has confirmed that all remaining funds will be transferred to GambleAware, and all bets not settled by August 31st will be settled with odds of 1.00, and the amount will be credited to the betting account.
Bet-at-home.com ended the statement by highlighting that its customer support service is “at your disposal for any support or clarification you may need”.
The news comes after operator BetBull announced its decision to pull out of the UK market last month, and as game developer Leap Gaming and sports betting service provider Delasport acquired licenses from the Gambling Commission.
