888, one of the UK’s biggest gambling companies, has been fined a record £7.8m for allowing 7,000 vulnerable customers who had taken a “time out” to continue playing.


An investigation by the Gambling Commission found that a “technical failure” in 888’s systems allowed players who had “self-excluded” from the company’s casino, poker and sport games to continue to access their accounts on the bingo platform.


The oversight continued for 13 months, allowing those customers to deposit up to £3.5m in their accounts.

“While 888 did have self-exclusion procedures in place, they were not robust enough and failed to protect potentially vulnerable customers,” the Commission said.


888 also failed to “recognise visible signs of problem gambling behaviour” in one individual, who staked £1.3m in repeated bets over the course of 13 months. At least £55,000 of this money had been stolen from the player’s employer, the Commission found.


888’s “lack of interaction” with this player “raised serious concerns about 888’s safeguarding of customers at risk of gambling harm”, the Commission said.


Of the £7.8m penalty, £4.25m will go towards good causes helping gambling addiction. The rest will be repaid to the customers affected.


Sarah Harrison, chief executive at the Gambling Commission, said: “Safeguarding consumers is not optional. This penalty package of just under £8m reflects the seriousness of 888’s failings to protect vulnerable customers.


"The 888 sanction package will ensure those affected don’t lose out, that the operator pays the price for its failings via a sum that will go to tackling gambling-related harm, and that independent assurance will be given to see that lessons are learnt.”


In a statement, 888 said: “The company accepts the conclusion of the review and is committed to providing players with a responsible as well as enjoyable gaming experience.”


888 had revealed in May that it was subject to a review by the Gambling Commission.


The Commission has ordered an independent audit of 888's customer protection policies.

Your here because the system has let corruption and greed fund the pockets of the bankers and the corrupt business corporations that claim gambling is a fun and safe past-time.


It got you at any age, for no particular reason, except you were bombarded with advertising and spam mail from black hat sources that offered you free money.


It took your time, your friends, your family from you and was endorsed by the Gambling Commission in the UK with sites mainly based in Malta with the MGA - (the same Malta Gaming Authority that take bribes and are basically a corrupt organisation with Ecogra their little puppet website that helps regulate all the mistakes they make)....


The government sanctioned this to happen, it benefited from the tax for the sake of the public, it has caused mental and physical health issues, suicide, relative poverty, absolute poverty and when a company such as Cassava or 888 fails to self exclude their players for around 10 years from all sites and confiscate deposits at random and will, who is left to protect us online.


The banks will not protect us, they will benefit from our debt and give us loans and more overdrafts to further the debt, they will work with the cashiers who look at the screen when you are in the bank to monitor what you are doing with your money, they will not step in to help.


Maybe you are getting constantly harassed, maybe this harassment has been going on for a long time, that your email and private personal details have been sold to other websites.


Some of these websites are free to do as they want as they reside in Curacao and Costa Rica, an area of non-regulation ie, simply put nobody knows anything except that it harbours the worst, most corrupt, dodgy, fake gambling sites, with fake pirate netent gaming software that will rob you and there is literally nothing you can do, except contact your credit card provider and try and stop it- if you are unaware, which most people may be, they will get ripped off and lose their savings, money for food, money for childrens shoes, money for warm winter clothes, money for heating oil, rent money... leading to stress, anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, alcoholism, drug addiction, mental health problems, physical health problems...


Who is to blame, overall.... who is responsible???


The Gambling Commission.


...lets ask them to help compensate us. Let's tell them what a low budget job they have done, lets review the people in charge - the officials, who they represent?

Lets all file a lawsuit and in doing so, lets protect the next generation and our kids. Nobody is legally challeging this body that represents more government corruption that leads right to the centre of deprevation.
