Metro Play Limited also trading as 666Bet.com has had its operations suspended by the Alderney Gaming Control Commission (AGCC) as well as the UK Gambling Commission (see previous report).
A press release issued by executive director for the AGCC, André Wilsenach said:
“The grounds for the decision to call the licensee to a hearing of the Commission and to suspend its licence relate largely to serious concerns about the existing control and management of Metro Play.
“It would not have been in the interest of customers, the eGambling industry or the reputation of Alderney to allow Metro Play to continue its operations.”
The AGCC issued a hearing notice to Metro Play Limited and suspended its operations with immediate effect.
The suspension notice requires Metro Play to process all customer withdrawals immediately on request.
