Dutch gaming regulator Kansspelautoriteit has announced that it has fined Imperial E-Club Limited €200,000 for operating seven online betting sites illegally.
Imperial E-Club Limited is the operator of online casinos Vegas Red, Casino Tropez, Titan Poker, Titan Casino, Titan Bet, Casino Bellini, and Europa Casino, and has been operating the sites from within the Dutch borders for years.
The hefty fine comes after a warning from the Dutch regulator, which resulted in Imperial removing the Dutch language from Europa Casino but maintaining the option for their other sites. The penalty is the highest ever implemented by the Kansspelautoriteit, and is attributed to the group's continuing to offer so many sites in the market.
