Dutch regulator issues fines to LeoVegas and Royal Panda

first_img10th October 2019 | By contenteditor Email Address Tags: Online Gambling Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: Europe Western Europe Netherlands Topics: Finance Legal & compliance Finance Dutch gambling regulator Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) has handed fines to LeoVegas and its Royal Panda brand for offering online games of chance in the Netherlands without a gaming licence. Dutch regulator issues fines to LeoVegas and Royal Panda Dutch gambling regulator Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) has handed fines to LeoVegas and its Royal Panda brand for offering online games of chance in the Netherlands without a gaming licence. Malta-based online casino and betting operator Royal Panda was fined €400,000 (£360,064/$441,269), while parent company LeoVegas was ordered to pay €350,000.Outlining its rulings, the KSA said that LeoVegas and the Royal Panda brand had clearly targeted players in the Netherlands, despite not having the necessary permissions to operate in the country.The KSA found LeoVegas and Royal Panda had been running websites that were accessible with a Dutch IP address, while customers could use iDEAL, a payment method native to the Netherlands, on both sites.The regulator monitored LeoVegas between August 2, 2018 and January 1, 2019, and found it had been offering various games of chance including online casino, slots, progresive jackpot games, scratch cards, sports betting and bingo.LeoVegas has also been running a number of bonus offers, a VIP program and an affiliate program on the site, while adverts featured a direct download link for the LeoVegas mobile app.Royal Panda, meanwhile, had been monitored by the KSA between August 2, 2018 and January 7, 2019. During this period, Royal Panda offered online casino games, slots, bingo, progressive jackpots, sports betting and scratch cards.The KSA also found Royal Panda offered bonuses, a loyalty program and an affiliate program, and that it had run a number of advertising campaigns to promote its services.LeoVegas acquired Royal Panda in November 2017 in a deal worth an initial €60m, although this could increase to €120m depending on earn-out clauses.All forms of online gambling are currently illegal in the Netherlands, though the country will launch a regulated market in January 2021 after the Dutch Senate in February passed the Netherlands’ Remote Gambling Act.New online gaming laws are set to come into force from July 1, 2020, subject to final approval from the Ministry of Justice and Security. After this, the KSA will draw up licence conditions ahead of the proposed launch date six months later.However, these new licences will only be made available to operators that have had no activity in the Netherlands in the two years prior to the introduction of legislation.Royal Panda and LeoVegas are among a number of operators to have been fined in recent months as the KSA continues to clamp down on unlicensed activity prior to new laws coming into effect.Last month, The Stars Group was fined €400,000 for operating is PokerStars.eu site in the Netherlands, while Kindred Group’s Trannel International subsidiary was also handed a fine of €470,000.For more analysis on the Netherlands, see our Market Monitor report.

The event was sponsored by Freedom Ministries Outreach and organized by Birdsong, who brought together the Apopka Fire and Police Departments, The Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Crimeline and 25 other sponsors for the event.APD and AFD brought K-9 units, Emergency Response Teams, Youth Fingerprinting and gave away child safety kits.Several other sponsors set up booths and were on hand to provide health services, flu immunizations, mental disorder and cancer information, legal advice, blood pressure checks, medicare options information, kid’s give-away promotions, basketball contests, music, games, and free food.Birdsong was pleased with the turnout, and the chance to bring law enforcement and other public service organizations out to help the community.“My heart is in helping people,” he said. “Bottom line – I’m a servant. And if you can’t serve people, how can you be a leader?” Birdsong has been a leader in the Apopka community for years. He is an Associate Pastor at The Freedom Ministries Church in South Apopka since 1989, and a Chaplain for The Orange County Sheriff’s Office for the last 15 years. His experience in that time gives him the foresight to see the immediate needs of people, but also future issues that can be avoided through early intervention.“It’s important to help people in need, but it’s also important to help them when they aren’t in need,” he said. “This way they won’t be in trouble or have needs in the future.”last_img read more

Our momentum for change continues unabated and The Portal Trust will continue to support those most in need.” Melanie May | 28 April 2021 | News In related news, City University in London is also renaming its business school, formerly the Cass Business School. And, also this month, the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust, Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust, Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust, and The Rowntree Society issued apologies for historical ‘deeply disturbing practices’ by Rowntree companies, which saw them benefit from slavery, unfree labour and other forms of racial exploitation during the eras of colonialism and apartheid, and outlined the actions they will take. “We’re excited to announce our brand has evolved with a fresh new feel and strapline, that we believe reflects our vision, core proposition and most importantly our valued community.center_img Advertisement The Sir John Cass Foundation has officially relaunched as The Portal Trust: part of its work to acknowledge and move away from its Founder’s association with the trans-Atlantic slave trade. Sir John Cass Foundation relaunches under new name of The Portal Trust Richard Foley, The Portal Trust’s Chief Executive, explained: About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. The Foundation began reflecting on its past and its mission last year, prompted by events in the USA, including the murder of George Floyd, and the Black Lives Matter movement. Following extensive consultation with stakeholders, the new brand was chosen with the Foundation changing its name to The Portal Trust on 27 January, but retaining the working name, Sir John Cass’s Foundation until this week’s relaunch on 27 April. The name change and rebrand was developed by Red Stone. “For nearly three hundred years the Foundation has pursued ideals of supporting the most disadvantaged within our local community of London. Our new brand name allows us to continue to do that with renewed vigour without reference to our founder’s historical connections with the trans-Atlantic slave trade. Our new brand name of The Portal Trust, which has evolved from our vision to ‘support all’, is a neat summary of all our ideals.last_img read more
