Betsoft’s Gaming License Suspended by Alderney

By Daniel Allermand

Betsoft Gaming, one of the leading online 3D casino games suppliers in the world, has had their gaming license suspended by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, as the regulatory body issued a notice to Betsoft Gaming which told them to stop their operations immediately and suspend games.

Head of the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, Andre Wilsenach, send the notice to Betsoft Gaming’s parent company, Digitus Limited, last week. The notice included that they had to suspend their operations effective immediately under regulation 91 of Alderney’s gambling regulation from 2009 as well as regulation 90 which will take them to a hearing.

Betsoft are no longer allowed to offer casino games to category 1 and 2 gaming licensees as well as category 2 associate certificate holders, which will effectively remove every operator using Betsoft’s license to operate their games. This is not only a major blow to the hundreds of operators using Betsoft, but also to Betsoft themselves as they will lose tons of money in revenues.

The ruling is in place until there has been a hearing and the suspension is either cancelled or continued. Betsoft has denied to comment on the news so far and the Alderney Gambling Control Commission has yet to explain exactly why Betsoft’s license has been seized.
