Netherlands regulator seeks to drive Gammix out of the market with fine of up to €4.5 million
The Dutch Gaming Authority (Ksa) has ordered Gammix Limited to withdraw from the Netherlands.
If Gammix does not stop operating in the Netherlands, the company will have to pay a penalty of 1.47 million euros per week. The penalty can amount to a maximum of almost 4.5 million euros.
The Ksa has established that Gammix offers games of chance to Dutch consumers via various websites. Gammix Ltd is not licensed to do so. As a result, no supervision is possible, which means that there is no control over, among other things, the fairness of the game and whether sufficient attention is paid to addiction prevention.
Online games of chance in the Netherlands have been legalized under strict conditions. The objective is to create a safe environment for people who want to gamble online. This includes taking a strict approach to illegal providers.
