William Hill to “Definitely” Appeal £300,000 Fine for Accepting Dutch Gamblers

Dutch gambling regulator imposes €300,000 fine on William Hill, operator to “definitely” appeal the punitive action. 

British bookmaker William Hill has become the latest of a growing list of operators to be slapped a hefty fine by the Dutch gaming authority, Kansspelautoriteit.

The gambling regulator said that William Hill was imposed the hefty penalty due to the fact that it operated in the Netherlands without holding the necessary licence. Kansspelautoriteit also pointed out that while the British bookmaker had a licence from Gibraltar that allowed it to operate in various international markets, that licence was not valid in the Netherlands.

A William Hill spokesperson told iGamingBusiness that the company will “definitely be appealing against the fine."
