White-label Aspire Global failures

The Commission stated that Aspire could not demonstrate that it had conducted due diligence checks on the six third-party companies with which it had white-label partnerships.


The definition of a white-label partnership is when licenced operators conduct a gambling business utilising the branding of another company.


In Great Britain, Aspire Global white-label brands include Karamba, Betiton, and Campiton.


The Gambling Commission ordered two white-label suppliers to pay a total of £675,000 in settlements for anti-money laundering and social responsibility violations in May.
