iGaming Business – Dutch gambling regulator Kansspelautoriteit has imposed fines on a number of companies connected to two unlicensed online gaming websites that have been targeting consumers in the Netherlands.

Fines totalling €310,000 ($392,415) were handed out to Redcorp SA (€130,000), Bluemay Enterprises NV (€130,000) and Bluemay Enterprises Ltd (€50,000) for their involvement in the unlicensed 7red.nl/.com and royaalcasino.nl/.com websites.

The regulatory body ruled that both websites have been illegally offering online games of chance in the country and also cited a number of complaints from customers.

An investigation found that although the language on the websites had been translated to English after an initial warning from the regulator, it remained focused on players in the Netherlands.
