Video slots to challenge KSA
By Simon Wright March 3, 2023
It was reported yesterday on the Casinomeister forum that online casino Videoslots has been fined €9,874,000, a fine which Videoslots has called “absurd and unlawful”.
The thread about the sanction of the popular online casino by the Dutch regulator KSA can be viewed here, with several members of the forum giving their thoughts and views on the latest in a long line of actions by iGaming regulators against operators.
As of this writing this morning the KSA have just released details on their website of the fine they have levied on videoslots what you can read here.
The fine comes because the KSA found that Videoslots was accepting players residing in Holland without a license, something Videoslots Deputy CEO Ulle Scotting refuted.
Regarding the news of the sanction from the KSA, Skotling confirmed that the operator would contest and appeal the fine, stating: “Videoslots does not target the Netherlands but restricts them, therefore the Dutch Gambling Act does not apply to its services. No Dutch player was able to access our website during the disputed period and there was therefore no infringement.”
“It is absurd that the KSA should fine us after we gained unauthorized access. Complete protection against unauthorized access is simply not possible and the KSA has no guidelines as to which measures are sufficient.”
“Videoslots takes its legal and regulatory obligations very seriously, but we dispute the actions and conclusions of the Ksa, which we believe are unlawful. We are convinced of a positive outcome in this case.”
