For some time, the UK Government and the UK online gambling scene have been at de-facto war with one another. Neither seems to agree with the views and vision of the other, creating needless back-and-forth that is limiting the enjoyment of the scene for many gamers. This leads to increasingly changed regulation and authority, which is having a negative net impact on helping gamers enjoy themselves at the moment.
One company who seems sick of the UK Governments form of action, though, is Genting UK. Genting UK plc is a major part of the Genting Malaysia Bhd group and has taken aim at the UK Government for what it calls it’s ‘whack-a-mole approach’ to lockdown strategy. Speaking about the issue was Jon Duffy, the Director of Corporate Assurance and Regulatory Affairs for Genting UK.
He was quoted in a statement as saying: “After weeks of meticulous planning, we find it incredible that we have been given less than 24 hours’ notice as to this change of plan, which in itself has caused huge damage to the business. Significant numbers of staff have been brought back from furlough to prepare for the reopening, and this is devastating news for our entire team who now faces further worry and uncertainty.
“For every week we remain closed, it is costing us over £1.5 million (about RM8.35 million). This is clearly not sustainable, with more jobs and livelihoods being put at risk with every last-minute change and delay,”
