Dutch Regulator Pursues More 0nline Gambling Operators

CyberRock Entertainment and Honeydew the latest to be fined

Dutch gambling regulator Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) has imposed fines of Euro 350,000 on two online gambling companies with websites offering illegal and unlicensed services to punters in the Netherlands.

The KSA announced the fines this week, naming Curacao-based CyberRock Entertainment and Honeydew, a firm based in Cyprus, and accusing them of colluding to offer online games of chance via the “almost entirely Dutch-themed websites” play2wincasino.com and supremeplay.com.

Neither company has commented on the penalties.

Explaining why the KSA is pursuing international operators accessing Dutch punters, KSA chairman René Jansen said: “Many Dutch people do not know online gambling in the Netherlands is illegal. Protecting consumers is an important objective of the KSA, in addition to preventing gambling addiction and combating illegality.”

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
