Sheriff Gaming was one of the leading software providers for online casino games. Unfortunately, their license was revoked by the Alderney Gaming Control Commission due to a violation of the terms. To be precise, the parent company of Sheriff Gaming, Bubble Group BV got its license revoked, therefore Sheriff Gaming seized to exists and operate.
Reason for Revoking the License
According to the court decision Bubble Group BV had its license revoked because of money laundering, drug dealing and illegal gambling activities. Because of this the AGCC had to revoke the license as they were no longer fit to hold the license certificate.
This is a great example how you should not operate any business in general, not just businesses in the online gambling industry.
Being a provider of software for online gambling is a serious business. Thorough and regular auditing is necessary to protect the innocent players who are just seeking a place for fun, entertainment and sometimes some extra cash.

Since its founding in 2010 and until its operation got terminated it maintained a somewhat good reputation and ranked high on the ranking list. It had employees in the range from 100-200.
