Mr Green Handed €312,500 Fine

This week the gaming regulator for the Netherlands has fined Mr Green Ltd €312,500 for failing to use IP blocking technology for their casino websites for Dutch players.

The lack of IP address blocking allowed punters within the country to access the site, rather than being given a splash screen that advised them that they weren't allowed access. The move comes after the regulator fined Betsson subsidiary Corona for allegedly operating in the country without a license.

For their part, Mr Green doesn't deny operating in the country, as they bring in roughly 6% of their revenues within the country, but they claim that most operators don't IP block Dutch punters. Because of this, they say they'll be appealing the decision with the hopes of having the fine overturned.

We'll keep an eye on the story and update readers as we learn more.

Quite expensive lesson learned there by Mr Green and the fact other casinos not blocking the local punters too shouldn't be a genuine excuse really.
