Danish regulator issued warnings against Unibet

Spillemyndigheden, a Danish betting regulator, warned Unibet, Kindred Group brand, for breaching money laundering rules in the state.

During December 2016 and December 2018, a Unibet client received permission to deposit DKK1.4m (£160,658/€188,262/$212,527) into his bill and had not given a confirmation that this budget was not generated as a result of criminal activity.

As the regulator states, in March 2012, Unibet had assured that the client would be controlled if they began depositing and betting again.

In December 2018, Unibet ultimately required the player to prove the budget origin. The document showed that he was betting more than his income. However, Unibet gave an allowance to the user to deposit DKK1.8m from 2019 to April 2020 until the account got closed.

As claimed by the regulator, this is in breach of sections 10, 22, 25 of the Money Laundering Act of Dania. The regulator assigned Unibet to inform the Money Laundering Secretariat of the country and gave a deadline of two weeks for it.

As of December 13, the notification has not been sent yet. Yet, in 2015 the user was suspected by Unibet for the first time. The regulator scolded Unibet and assigned to notify the Money Laundering Secretariat to flatten the situation.
