Dutch Gaming Regulator KSA Levies Fine on Mr Green Casino

mr green casino fine ksaMr Green Casino is a reputed gambling site amongst players, especially across the European Union. This brand offers a great selection of games to players from leading software game platforms like BetSoft, NetEnt and IGT.

At the same time, gamblers get to access various sports betting services, play live casino games and other speciality games like Keno and Bingo.

At the same time, Mr Green offers its gambling services in different languages including Dutch and English. It does not have any gambling license to operate in the Netherlands. The Dutch Gaming Regulatory Agency, Kansspelautoriteit or KSA, has imposed a fine worth €315,500 to Mr Green casino for offering its gambling service in the Netherlands without getting prior approval.

KSA has specific regulations in place that requires all the unlicensed casino operators to block the Internet Service Provider or ISP of the Dutch players. It is something Mr Green Casino failed to do. The gaming authority further says that the casino has intentionally flouted the rules as it customised its website in the Dutch language to target the casino online gambling industry in the Netherlands.

At the same time, Kansspelautoriteit pointed out that Mr Green allowed players to make deposits and withdrawals with the help of the iDeal payment method which is a popular banking method in the Netherlands.

Mr Green Casino Denies All Claims of KSA

Mr Green operates many different online gaming websites like WinningRoom.com, BingoSlottet.dk and BingoSjov.dk which are extremely popular amongst European Union players. Initially, the fine was levied on July 17 this year, and the casino appealed to revoke because the gaming regulation in the Netherlands is not clear. Also, Mr Green was offering its gambling service to the expats and not targeted the iGaming industry.

The casino further says that it is tough to block the ISP of Dutch players. It wants KSA to overturn the decision as the fine would not only cause financial problems but it would be difficult for Mr Green to obtain a gaming license when new regulations are put into play. Unfortunately, the court has ruled in favour of KSA, and the casino is asked to pay the fines for disobeying the gaming rules.

This unfortunate incident sends a clear message to the casino operators situated offshore who want to target the Dutch gaming market. PokerStars has already taken note of this fine levied on Mr Green and had announced that it had dropped iDeal payment from all its banking methods. Offshore casino operators looking forward to applying for a gaming license in the Netherlands must approach cautiously, or they would get risked for blacklisted by Kansspelautoriteit gaming authority.
