THE HAGUE, Netherlands (September 7, 2022) — The Dutch Gaming Authority (Ksa) imposes a cease and desist order on MKC Limited for illegally offering online games of chance. If MKC Limited does not stop illegally offering online games of chance, the company must impose a penalty of 28,000 euros per week. The total penalty can amount to a maximum of 84,000 euros.

Research by the Ksa showed, among other things, that MKC Limited offers online games of chance to Dutch consumers via at least one website. A Dutch consumer can create a player account, make a deposit and participate in games of chance. No technical measures have been taken to exclude Dutch consumers from participating. MKC Limited is not licensed for this.

Since 1 October 2021, licensed providers have been allowed to offer online games of chance in the Netherlands under strict conditions. These conditions are aimed at ensuring a safe legal offer, whereby players are assured of fair play and are protected against gambling addiction. This includes a strict approach to illegal supply.
