Digital technologies, including digital and virtual currencies, carry heightened money laundering and terrorist financing risks for gambling operators due to their ability to be exploited by criminals and money launderers.

Prior to the deployment of digital technologies, operators should assess the risks associated with their introduction and implement measures to manage and mitigate the risks identified by the operator.

These measures should be constantly reviewed to ensure that they are effective in practice, that they remain effective and that they are adjusted appropriately where new digital technologies are introduced.
