Inspectors Investigated the Casinosky Website

Following an investigation carried out by inspectors for the Dutch Gaming Authority, they found the casinosky website could be accessed from within the Netherlands jurisdiction. Players could create accounts, deposit funds into the customer wallet, and were able to gamble from the Dutch territory.

KSA issued the penalty notice after if found its investigators were still able to place bets on the website, even though they indicated they were within the country. This is a clear violation of running a gaming operation without an appropriate license.

As part of the regulation of gaming activity in the Netherlands Sarah Eternal SRL has the right under the rules to lodge an objection against KSA for issuing the penalty judgment.

Providers who do not have a license for the Dutch market must do everything they can to ensure that Dutch players cannot come to them to gamble, for example by setting up an IP block, Inspectors from the Ksa could indeed go to the casinosky.com website of provider Sarah Eternal to create an account, make a deposit and participate in illegal games of chance. This was also possible if the account clearly stated that the player was from the Netherlands. That is why the Ksa has now imposed an order subject to penalty.
