Operators ordered to update fund withdrawal policies

first_img Email Address Topics: Legal & compliance Tech & innovation Regions: UK & Ireland UK punters will be able to withdraw funds more easily in the future after the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) ordered two online gambling companies to update their policies, while the Gambling Commission warned operators to “take immediate action” or face the consequences.Jumpman Gaming and Progress Play will remove terms and conditions that had stopped players from taking out all of their own money in a single transaction.Some customers of the brands had previously been forced to withdraw funds in instalments over an extended period, according to the CMA.Both Jumpman Gaming and Progress Play have agreed to drop these practices and also stop using terms that enabled them to confiscate money from players’ accounts due to inactivity.In addition, Progress Play has agreed to no longer confiscate players’ money if they do not meet identification check criteria within a certain period.The announcement comes after the CMA, in collaboration with the Gambling Commission, carried out in-depth investigation into unfair practices and terms and conditions across the gambling industry.The CMA expects other firms to follow Jumpman Gaming and Progress Play in changing their policies in the near future.George Lusty, senior director for consumer protection at the CMA, said: “People choosing to gamble online should be able to walk away with their own money whenever they want to.“Jumpman Gaming and Progress Play are the first to commit to scrap their unfair withdrawal rules, but we expect companies across the sector to follow suit so no-one gets caught out with unfair terms and conditions when gambling online.”The UKGC has thrown its full support behind the initiative, saying operators that do not remove unfair restrictions will face action from the regulator.Paul Hope, executive director at the UKGC, said: “We are committed to raising standards for consumers in the gambling sector to ensure they are getting a fair deal. We’ve already been working with the CMA to tackle unfair online gambling promotions, and today’s announcement will improve how customers are treated.“In July, we announced new rules, which will make it quicker and easier for the Commission to take action for breaches of consumer law. That includes taking action where firms breach the principles laid out by the CMA.“We support the action taken by the CMA and expect all online gambling businesses to take immediate action to update their practices in line with these, or face action by the Commission in the future.”Image: Santeri Viinamäki CMA clamps down on two companies as GC fires warning to others 29th August 2018 | By contenteditor Legal & compliance Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Operators ordered to update fund withdrawal policies AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletterlast_img read more

These are the trends you need to know before you do  Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Please enter your comment! I remember when the gas was around four dollars a gallon, and the big V8s were killing us. Our truck, at that time, had a double sized tank on it, and we never kept it nowhere near full, in fact, I used to gripe at my husband for constantly running around on fumes, and telling him okay, if we run out of gas, ” I ain’t walking”…. LOL I am so happy to see the gas keeps coming down. The lowest I have seen around this area so far is $ 1.73 per gallon. I see where the Trump administration is giving billions to the Arabs, basically bailing them out, because their cash cow, the oil, is falling out, and those rich Arabs don’t know what to do…..oh well, glad the prices are dropping. I guess the only part of this article I don’t understand is why gas stock is up 10 percent?

The nights and days seem so long…..it drives me crazy. All I can lay in bed and think about is, of all the places I want to go, and things I want to do, an oversized bucket list, and yet, there is nowhere to go. I really don’t anticipate things ever being back to the so-called “normal” ever again, in this country. Some of the beaches are open again, but I never dreamed that you couldn’t sit on the beach, or lie down to sun bathe. It is so crazy! From what I am reading, when the restrictions are lifted, many of the chain grocery stores may opt to keep people from entering the building to shop! They may implement curb-side pickup, or home delivery only, to keep their store employees safe. I understand their concern, but I just can’t picture that happening! It is so depressing and crazy, and if that is the way it is going to be, then we have more freedom to go to the grocery stores right now, on lock down! And also, another crazy is the guy who is making masks out of python skins from the snakes caught in the Florida Everglades…..SMH!

Newspaper owner shot dead

first_img RSF_en News BelarusEurope – Central Asia Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown BelarusEurope – Central Asia Organisation News to go further May 29, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Newspaper owner shot deadcenter_img “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says Reporters Without Borders called today on Russia’s chief state prosecutor, Vladimir Ustinov, to thoroughly investigate the murder of Alexander Plotnikov, co-owner of the regional daily paper in Tumen (Siberia), Gostini dvor, who was shot dead on 20 May.”Because so many journalists have been killed in Russia recently as a result of their work, we ask you to see that a serious and timely enquiry is made into whether his death was linked to articles he published, even though at first glance it may seem it was due to a financial dispute among the paper’s owners,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to Ustinov.Investigators think the murder was done by hired killers. Shortly beforehand, the other owners had switched all the paper’s shares into their own bank accounts and started proceedings to wind up the paper. Plotnikov had won a court case against them and was trying, with the help of bailiffs, to recuperate his shares. The other owners had already refused to allow him to enter their offices and on 20 May, the day he was killed with a Makarov pistol, he was going to make another attempt to do so.
