In September 2022, the UK Gambling Commission conducted a compliance assessment, initiating a licence review into the operations of Lindar Media, an operator in the iGaming industry. Subsequently, after recognizing the identified shortcomings and proactively presenting an Action Plan to the Commission, Lindar Media has reached an agreement to pay a Regulatory Settlement.
The Gambling Commission commended Lindar Media for its transparency, cooperation, and proactive approach to rectifying the identified failings. Notably, these shortcomings predated the numerous changes made to Safer Gambling and Anti-Money Laundering processes introduced since the audit period. Lindar Media was also recognized for its significant efforts in addressing some of the failings before the investigations were concluded. Importantly, none of the failings showed evidence of criminal spending within Lindar Media, nor were there any financial gains for the business as a result.
Savvas Fellas, CEO of Lindar Media, discussed the company’s evolution since 2022, emphasizing the focus on maturing day-to-day operations through the development of the senior leadership team. He highlighted the implementation of scalable processes that ensure consistency in growth and the establishment of technology-driven models that reinforce compliance and safer gambling commitments to players. These efforts align with Lindar Media’s mission of offering progressive, value-based entertainment with transparency and delight.
Since its inception in 2018, MrQ.com, under the Lindar Media umbrella, has consistently strived to redefine the standards of a casino brand. Evolving from a small team of professionals with ambitious visions, the brand has worked diligently to meet the dynamic demands of the iGaming industry. It’s important to note that the failings outlined by the Gambling Commission occurred during a period of rapid growth for the company, with investigations conducted before the full implementation of its core senior leadership team. Lindar Media made substantial investments in Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Safer Gambling measures to elevate the standards of policies and procedures, ensuring that MrQ.com remains a benchmark of excellence within the industry.
Lindar Media shares the Gambling Commission’s commitment to improving compliance standards across the industry. The company remains proactive in its collaboration with the Gambling Commission to prevent the recurrence of such oversights, reflecting its dedication to maintaining the highest standards in the iGaming sector.
