“Operating in a controlled natural environment the place the issued fines are not proportional as opposed to the dimension of the procedure would make very little feeling for BGO,” a consultant of the operator advised iGB.
“It is with regret that BGO surrendered its licence right after nine successful years, but it was the appropriate final decision to protect the players, workers and affiliate partners from a prospective default,” they claimed. “We welcome delivers on the databases and model from other operators with a remaining appetite for the current market.”
