Reykjavik, Iceland -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/21/2022 -- The Danish regulator, Spillemyndigheden, reported the mobile betting business Tipwin to the police earlier this year - and issued two injunctions back in June. According to the regulator, Tipwin had breached two sections of the Danish Money Laundering Act and was being penalised for failures in anti-money laundering compliance at its retail betting shops. The two sections of the legislation that the business had fallen foul of were Section 7, which deals with risk assessments, and Section 8 which is focused on the policies and practices in place for staff to help spot the signs of money laundering. Now, however, the second of these injunctions - relating to Section 8 - has been cancelled by the regulator because the staff who should have been responsible for processes and policies were outsourced.
Spillemyndigheden has made it very clear in recent years that there is a renewed focus on preventing money laundering in Denmark and that failings are unlikely to be tolerated. It issued a strongly worded statement earlier this year reminding companies of the obligation to comply with regulations that prohibit financial interactions with certain countries, individuals, groups, legal bodies or entities. Tipwin is not the first in the gambling industry to face injunctions from the regulator, as Casino Copenhagen, Casumo and Bet365 have all been penalised. The Section 8 injunction against Tipwin was cancelled after "careful consideration" at the regulator but the grounds for Section 7 still apply and the company will need to comply.
