Dutch Gaming Authority Fines Bet-at-Home €410,000

Internet betting group bet-at-home has been fined a hefty €400,000 by the Dutch Gaming Authority (Kansspelautoriteit) after the regulator found the operator targeting Dutch citizens without a gaming license.

The betting group was found to have specifically targeted Dutch punters between June 14th and October 11th, 2017. These players were given the opportunities to play casino games, even though bet-at-home doesn't carry a Dutch gaming license. The company instead has a Maltese license, which covers most of Europe, save for countries that prohibit remote operators from offering services within their borders.

The regulator handed out a €210,000 to Bet-at-home.com Entertainment Limited, with €200,000 also being handed to Bet-at-home.com Internet Limited. Warnings were handed out to other parties that helped in spreading the offer to gamble. Bet-at-home faced the fines as there were repeated warnings made to the group previously.

No comment from bet-at-home was available as of press time.

Well, bet-at-home should blame only themselves for that heavy fine but they could probably controvert that with the fact they've had some sort of licence during the time and it would be interesting if they will bring that to the court.
