New Jersey Fines NYX and William Hill

This week the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement has fined gaming operator NYX, PokerStars, and William Hill for associated violations that took place in the Garden State.

NYX was found to have launched three games that were materially different than what had been tested and sanctioned by the regulator. This violation resulted in a $100,000 fine. William Hill violated the laws by failing to adhere to self-exclusion rules, targeting players who'd excluded from betting sites.

PokerStars had three different fines, which totaled $11,000. The operator had violated data retention rules, self-exclusion rules, and also used the unsanctioned games. The violations took place between November 16th through the 30th.

No comment from any party involved was available as of press time.

Seems to me that the fines for all three companies have been quite justified and especially that of NYX, what they've done is unacceptable on any level and the size of their fine suggests just that if you ask me.
