The Dutch gaming regulator investigated 2 websites of Malta based operator; Gammix, in order to ascertain the possibility of placing a bet on the websites, from Netherlands. The possibility was confirmed after the KSA created a player account on both Gammix’s websites from a Dutch IP, which involved supplying a full name, date of birth, address details and nationality.
The investigation found that it was possible to make a deposit, create a player account and participate with games offered by the operator from Netherland on their websites; rantcasino.com and nordslot.com.
KSA has now imposed a cease and desist order on Gammix, for illegally offering games to Dutch customers The decision was made to impose the order, as Gammix does not have a licence to operate in the Dutch market.
The operator now faces weekly fines of up to €1.4m (£1.1m/$1.4m), with a maximum penalty of €4.5m if it does not stop offering these games to players in the Netherlands within two weeks of the regulator’s decision.
