UK fines Aspers casino for low social responsibility

Gambling News and Lucky Stories

The British regulator has fined the Aspers casino in Stratford £650,000 for lack of social responsibility. The investigation came after a 37-year-old client took his own life after losing £25,000 at roulette and slot machines. The investigation found that he had previously suffered gambling losses of around £100,000. As a result of the investigation, the Gambling Commission stated that Aspers did not fulfill its obligations under the social responsibility code to identify problem customers. According to the regulator, the casino failed to make inquiries when a customer spent £97,000 in two days, allowing the customer to exceed their £5,000 limit on other visits to the establishment. Previously, the UK Gambling Commission introduced restrictions aimed at increasing the safety and transparency of gambling.
