Netherlands Gaming Authority fines Onisac Ltd, owner of casino.com, for second time for offering games of chance to Dutch customers.
The Netherlands Gaming Authority has fined the owner of casino.com for a second time for offering online games of chance to Dutch consumers.
A fine of €450,000 has been issued to Onisac Limited, the Gibraltar-based company that owns casino.com.
According to the KSA, the fine, which is mainly for offering online games of chance, also includes a €50,000 component for charging unreasonable administration costs. Apparently, the company had been charging players a 5% monthly admin fee if they were inactive for 180 days – with a minimum fee of €15 and maximum of €500.
Its not the first time the company has fallen foul of the KSA, having received a fine back in 2013 too, with KSA chairman René Jansen saying:
“This is a repeat offender. That makes the violation extra harmful and is reason to double the fine.”
Casino.com is no longer available to Dutch consumers.
