Dutch Gaming Authority Issue Fines for Operating Gaming Machines Without A License

February 18, 2020 | Government

THE HAGUE  — The Gaming Authority has imposed two fines for operating gaming machines without a license. The amount of the fines is more than 86,000 euros and more than 11,000 euros.

The Betting and Gaming Act states that a game of chance may only be offered if a permit has been granted for it.

The fine of more than 86,000 euros has been imposed on Schinveld BV . for operating 45 slot machines without a license. This happened in an entertainment center in the municipality of Schinveld. The company had taken over the slot machines, but did not have a permit to operate them. This was still the case during a second visit by inspectors of the Gaming Authority. This led to the fine of more than 86,000 euros. The vending machines in question have since been sold to a party that does have an operating license. This has put an end to illegal exploitation.

License withdrawn

The fine of more than eleven thousand euros has also been imposed for operating gaming machines without a license. Research by the Ksa showed that the person concerned continued to operate after the license for this was withdrawn. The exploitation took place in this case in four cafés in Amsterdam and nearby.
