The British gambling regulator, the Gambling Commission, has suspended Lottery England’s license to act as a non-remote external lottery manager license.
The suspended license had allowed the company to provide lottery services, and manage lotteries for local authorities and non-profits.
Announcing the suspension, the Commission cited “concerns that activities may have been carried out contrary to the Gambling Act, or not in accordance with conditions of their license”.
While it represents the suspension of a particularly large operator, it is only the latest to be actioned by the Commission.
In April, it suspended the license of the Gibraltar-based B2C arms of Nektan, and iGaming operator Stakers has surrendered its British online gambling license after losing its appeal against the suspension of the license pending an investigation.
UK licensing conditions for lottery management require that lotteries must not be run for commercial gain.
