Dutch regulator slaps fine on Bet-At-Home
Reading Time: 1 minute

Kansspelautoreit, the Dutch gambling regulator, has slapped a 410,000 Euro fine on Bet-At-Home for actively promoting online gambling services and products to Dutch citizens and allowing them to access company websites.

The regulator issued the fine after a year-long investigation, after obtaining evidence of television commercials targeting Dutch players and issuing repeated warnings to the company.

Kansspelautoreit officials were able to open gambling accounts with the companies despite using IP addresses pertaining to the Netherlands, and could fund the accounts via a Dutch payment processor recommended by the websites.

The fines are the latest to be issued following repeated warnings from the regulator that it will pursue and prosecute operators who violate Dutch gambling laws and regulations.

Bet-At-Home has not yet commented on the punishment, but the fines could prove contentious, given that Dutch online gambling legislation is yet to emerge from parliament.

The newly passed gambling legislation in Switzerland, the Swiss Gaming Act, will come into force in the country on 1 January 2019. The law will regulate the licensed online gambling space and ban foreign operators altogether.

The new law legalises licensed iGaming companies.

The gaming act’s enforcement was confirmed by Switzerland’s Federal Council, which confirmed its implementation starting next January. It also explained it will consider licence applications during the first six months of 2019, in compliance with the new legislation, and the first ones are set to be issued before July 1, when the foreigner’s ban comes into effect as well.

Licensed operators can provide poker and roulette games to the customers, but need to stick with stringent constraints about the stakes.

The “concrete measures” of the new legislation were aimed to protect problem gamblers.
