Dutch Gaming Authority imposes fines totalling more than 26 million euros

3 March 2023
(PRESS RELEASE) -- At the end of December 2022, the Dutch Gaming Authority (Ksa) imposed fines totaling more than 26 million euros on five parties that illegally (without the required permit) allowed players in the Netherlands to participate in online games of chance. Offering online games of chance without a license is prohibited. Enforcing this ban is one of the priorities of the Ksa.
The fines were imposed on Videoslots Limited (9,874,000 euros), N1 Interactive Limited (12,640,000 euros), Betpoint Group Limited/BetPoint.it (1,787,000 euros), Probe Investments Limited (1,128,000 euros) and Fairload Limited (900,000 euros).
In determining the amount of the fines, the Ksa has based itself on its newly adopted fines policy in September 2021, which takes into account the turnover achieved in the Netherlands. After the fines were announced to the providers at the end of December, they asked the court to stop the publication of the decisions. The judge rejected the requests this week.
