Online gambling company in Curaçao hit with fine of 100,000 euro

CriminaliteitWILLEMSTAD – A company that offers online gambling in the Netherlands, must pay a fine of 100,000 euros because it has no license for online gambling. According to the authorities, it is the first time that the Gaming Authority imposes a fine on such a company.

The company Global Stars is located in Curacao, but focuses on Dutch internet users who would like to play for example, bingo, roulette or just a lottery. Permits cannot be requested at this moment for the provision of online gambling. Authorities are working on a law that makes that possible. Until then gambling via internet is banned in the Netherlands.
