In the United Kingdom, the Gambling Commission regulator has announced that it has suspended the operating license for Maltese online casino firm EveryMatrix Software Limited following the conclusion of an investigation.
The regulator used an official Thursday press release to declare that it had instigated the examination due to concerns over ‘compliance activity’ and that the inquiry had involved a thorough assessment of the iGaming operator’s ‘customer interaction framework’.
The Gambling Commission proclaimed that EveryMatrix Software Limited, which is headquartered in the Valletta suburb of St Julian’s, is responsible for the online casinos at Jetbull.com, SportingIndex.com, CasinoMulti.com, PlayFrank.com, Bookee.co.uk, Fantasino.com, PWRBet.com, WestCasino.com, MrWin.com and DragonaraOnline.com and that these domains are now not licensed ‘to offer remote facilities for real event betting other than pool betting or betting on virtual events and to operate a remote casino’.
