The UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) has suspended the operating license of charitable lottery operator Capen with immediate effect as the regulator undertakes a review into the licensee’s activities.

“The review follows concerns that activities may have been carried out contrary to the Gambling Act, not in accordance with a condition of their licence and that the Licensee may be unsuitable to carry on the licensed activities,” UKGC said in a statement. It said the review is under section 116 of the Gambling Act 2005.
