Crime and AML Monitoring Checklist-v1

All gambling operators have a responsibility to keep financial crime out of gambling. The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 places a legal obligation on gambling operators to be alert to attempts by customers to gamble money acquired unlawfully, either to obtain legitimate or ‘clean’ money in return or simply using criminal proceeds to fund gambling. Both modes of operation are described as ‘money laundering’.  Casinos also have additional responsibilities under the ‘The Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds (Information on the Payer) Regulations 2017’.
