Dutch regulator fines BetEnt for advertising breaches
BetEnt has been fined €400,000 by Dutch gambling regulator, Kansspelautoriteit (KSA), for breaching advertising regulations
Dutch online gambling regulator, Kansspelautoriteit (KSA), has imposed a €400,000 fine on BetEnt for breaching advertising regulations.
The company has been found to have sent advertising material for its Betcity.nl brand to customers aged 18-24 between October 2021 and March 2022, which is in violation of Dutch regulations prohibiting the targeting of vulnerable groups, including young adults.
BetEnt was acquired by Entain in January and becomes the fourth online gaming operator to be fined by the KSA in the past six months for targeting young adults.
KSA's Chairman, René Jansen, emphasized the importance of gaming providers respecting the rules intended to protect vulnerable target groups.
