Online gambling firm 888 has been fined £9.4million for social responsibility and money laundering failings.

It said 888 failed to identify players at risk of harm by only making financial checks after a customer had deposited £40,000.

888 did not contact a user who lost £37,000 in six weeks and defectors-weld gave someone on £1,400 a month a monthly deposit cap of £1,300.

Money laundering failures included letting users deposit £40,000 before doing a source-of-funds check, and accepting verbal assurances about income. 

One spent £65,835 in five months without a check.

Commission chief Andrew Rhodes said: ‘If there is a repeat at 888 then we have to seriously consider the suitability of the operator to uphold the licensing objectives and keep gambling safe and crime-free.'
