Three Men Receive Summonses in Relation to Agora Bet


Summonses have been served by the Gambling Commission (the Commission) on three men aged 39, 48 and 57 with regard to a total of 42 offences under the Gambling Act 2005 (the Act).

The summonses were issued following an investigation into the suspected illegal provision of facilities for gambling without an operating or premises licence being in place, contrary to sections 33, 37 and 242 of the Act. The investigation included the seizure of gaming machine equipment and other assets by the Commission, from ten premises operated by Agora Bet Ltd at locations in London, the south east and the south midlands in May 2010.

The three men will appear before Birmingham Magistrates Court on 8 July 2011.

The Commission will make no further comment on this case at this stage.
