The regulator had originally ordered the operator to exit the Netherlands back in June of 2022 for not having an appropriate license to offer gambling services. The repercussions for not complying were a fine of just under 1.5 million Euros per week, which would be limited to a maximum of 4.4 million Euros.
The KSA has recently announced that Gammix did not leave the country, which drove it to impose the maximum fine. The regulator has been periodically checking if the operator still allows Dutch players to register, and has had no trouble signing up from the Netherlands.
Our cease and desist orders are usually effective pretty quickly, however, in this case, the violating company has not fully remedied its wrongdoings. Because of this, we must escalate it to the next step, issuing a hefty fine that cannot be ignored.
commented the Chairman of the Kansspelautoriteit, Rene Jansen.
The KSA has been on a penalty spree lately, issuing record-breaking fines to several operators at a time. Read about the regulator’s recently updated 25 million Euro enforcement action here.
