AGCO fines three operators $70k for unauthorized games
Ontario’s AGCO has recently issued a combined fine of 70 thousand Canadian dollars to three iGaming operators.
The regulator has recently accused the three gambling firms, Mobile Incorporated Ltd., Bunchberry Ltd., and LeoVegas, of offering iGaming titles that have not been certified by it or one of its testing laboratory partners.
Moreover, AGCO has also accused Mobile Incorporated Ltd. of offering titles developed by two uncertified game studios. Because of this, the firm has been hit with the largest fine from the group, which has amounted to 30 thousand Canadian dollars.
LeoVegas and Bunchberry Ltd., on the other hand, were fined 25 thousand and 15 thousand Canadian dollars respectively. The AGCO stated that the former had been found to only have a single uncertified title, while the latter had more.
“We hold all of our registered operators to the same high standards to accomplish our mission of ensuring the safety of Ontarian players. A major aspect of this involves confirming that all of our operators offer only titles and experiences that have been certified by one of our laboratory partners and have proven to uphold our safety standards.”
remarked the registrar and CEO of the AGCO, Tom Mungham.
