    Default Dutch gambling authority fines 10 companies a total of 3.5m this year

    "The Dutch gambling authority (Kansspelautoriteit) fined companies offering online betting and casino / gambling games in the Netherlands a total of €3.5m in 2019, an increase of more than 50% the 2018 fine total.

    .... the rise is due to both a rise in the maximum fine (to €200,000) and a rise in the number offenders being penalized."

    "The Netherlands senate voted to open the gambling market to domestic and foreign gaming operators as early as 2021. Gambling firms will need to apply for a licence, and will be forced to pay gambling taxes at 29%, - one of the highest rates in Europe."

    "Most of the major European gambling groups have now been fined by the Dutch watchdog - so many of them will need to wait for a cooling period before their application can be accepted." - source
