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.”
