Dutch regulator, KSA, issues major fine

By site_editor

November 2 2018: Gambling Insider reports that the Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) has fined CyberRock Entertainment and Honeydew €350,000 ($400,000) for offering online games of chance in the Netherlands.

Online games of chance are not currently allowed under Dutch legislation and the KSA aims to protect Dutch consumers who may not be aware of the law.

In so doing, the regulator has emphasised the fact operators can use “geo-blocking” to prevent being visible to users with a Dutch IP address.

This would not work against a Dutch player using a VPN to shield which country they are in, although that would place the fault with the consumer rather than the operator.
