The UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) has announced that Smart TV Broadcasting Limited, the operating company of Smart Live Gaming, has forfeited its official ‘Remote Operator’ and ‘Gambling Software’ licences.
This comes a week after the UKGC placed Smart Live Gaming brands under temporary suspension stating that the interactive gaming operator was ‘unfit’ to operate in the UK’s gambling industry.
Smart Live Gaming will be required to settle its outstanding player accounts and payments.
Launched in May 2007 on Sky TV channel 863, Smart Live Gaming aimed to become the leading industry player in UK interactive gaming through its brand ‘Smart Live Casino’, offering consumers real-time televised roulette and live-dealer games.
The voluntary surrender of its UKGC licenses will lead to the closure of all Smart Live Gaming associated brands and services.
