Commenting on her nomination, Pelc said: “I am humbled to have been recognised in the Entrepreneur category at the National Diversity Awards.

“Throughout my career, I have sought to promote gender diversity and inclusion at every turn. As the female founder of a tech start-up, I have experienced many of the challenges that all entrepreneurs face but I was fortunate to find myself in an environment where gender needn’t be a barrier to success.

“I’d hope that is the case for other female entrepreneurs and that by being transparent about my journey from the early days, I might provide some much-needed encouragement to others. Indeed, through a variety of projects and collaborations, I have learned that embracing diversity is the key to unlocking true entrepreneurial spirit,” said Pelc.

Dutch gambling regulator Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) has imposed a fine of €531,250 on Malta-based Tipico Co. Ltd. for illegally offering online games of chance to Dutch consumers.

The online games of chance were offered via the tipico.com website. A starting fine of 200,000 euros applies for this violation. The fine was increased 3 times by 75,000 euros: once for the bonuses on offer and the large number of games and bets offered, once for the use of an inactivity fee and once for offering live betting.

This form of betting carries a higher addiction risk than bets that can only be made before the start of matches. Furthermore, the fine was increased because the age of the players was not visibly verified. Tipico’s website can no longer be reached with a Dutch IP address.
