This week Betsson subsidiary Corona Ltd, the owner of Oranje Casino and Kroon, announced that they were appealing a large €300,000 fine that was levied by the Netherlands Gambling Authority.
The fine was handed down last month after the regulator found that the company was operating in the Netherlands without a gaming license. Corona is a subsidiary of Betsson, but none of the parent company's other brands were found to be violating the laws. The company's appeal will initially go within the regulatory system in the Netherlands, but could take the challenge to the courts if need be.
In a statement, Corona said that: "(It) maintains its prior position that its operations comply with applicable laws and regulations in the absence of an EU-compliant gambling legislation in the Netherlands".
"Pending the procedures, the sanction will not become irrevocable."
As of press time Betsson hadn't released a comment. We'll follow the story and update readers as we learn more.
