The Netherlands’ gambling regulator fines Gammix Limited $21.2 mn

A penalty of $21.2 million has been levied against Gammix Limited by the Dutch gambling regulator, Kansspelautoriteit (KSA). This pertains to the operation of the organization’s enterprise without a valid certification.

Gammix was compelled to cease operations in the Dutch market in 2022 or face weekly penalties of 1.4 million euros. The regulator requested the operator to remit a payment of 4.4 million euros in March due to non-compliance with local legislation.

This current penalty is associated with the other two directives as a result of Gammix’s failure to take the necessary actions. The operator continues to offer uncertified online gambling options across multiple domains, attracting Dutch players, as per the KSA. There are numerous such sites, including,, and The case concerned and in 2023.

In accordance with its current directives, the KSA has specified the monitoring of Gammix-related websites in 2022, given the sustained activity. However, the operator refuted every allegation.

Notwithstanding Gammix’s refutation, the regulatory body assessed a sanction of 19.6 million euros, equivalent to 6.5% of the company’s total revenue of 302.7 million euros.
