The BBC reports that top online casino operator 32Red, a subsidiary of the Kindred Group, has been punished with a GBP 2 million penalty by the UK Gambling Commission for failing to protect a problem gambler.

The Commission said the penalty also related to money laundering failures.

A Kindred Group spokesman confirmed that the group has accepted the penalty and emphasised that the company is “working hard” to improve its processes.
