Dutch gambling fines hit record €1.7m in 2018

first_img Topics: Finance Legal & compliance Dutch gambling fines hit record €1.7m in 2018 Dutch gambling regulator Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) has revealed that it issued a record €1.7m (£1.5m/$1.9m) in fines to companies that breached rules and regulations throughout 2018.The regulator handed out a total of 23 sanctions over the course of the last year, including seven administrative penalties, 12 penalties and four charges under administrative coercion.An administrative penalty can be imposed without the intervention of the Public Prosecution Service or a judge, whereas a penalty is issued when the offender fails to cease an activity that violates regulations within a certain period. Administrative coercion refers to the KSA ordering an offender to take action in order to ensure they are no longer in breach of the country’s gambling regulations.Of the seven administrative fines, five related to online gaming. Betclic Everest Group’s Bet-At-Home, Betsson subsidiary Corona, Mr Green operator MRG, CyberRock Entertainment and its Honeydew subsidiary, and William Hill were all found to have illegally targeted Dutch players online. Online gambling is currently prohibited in the Netherlands, with a bill to re-regulate the market stalled in the country’s legislature.The KSA also issued an administrative fine to the owner of the internet café ITC Lounge for offering sports betting services, as well as an unnamed individual for operating two slot machines without a licence.Financial penalties continue to increase in the Netherlands since the KSA was established in 2012. The 2018 total is significantly higher than just over €1m in 2017 and more than four times the €400,000 of fines issued in 2016.Meanwhile, the KSA has also revealed it revoked a total of 37 gaming machine operating licences in 2018. The regulator did not disclose the full details of each ruling, but did state that in some cases the licences was terminated at the request of the licence-holder as a result of the licensee shutting down.However, some of the companies that have been fined in recent months have hit back at the rulings.Last month, William Hill told iGamingBusiness.com that it would be appealing a €300,000 fine from the KSA. The regulator penalised the bookmaker for offering online games of chance to Dutch consumers via its WilliamHill.com website and two mobile applications. Betsson also confirmed it is appealing against a €300,000 fine for targeting Dutch players via its Corona subsidiary.Image: Marco Verch Email Address 2nd January 2019 | By contenteditor AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Finance Tags: Online Gambling Regions: Europe Western Europe Netherlands Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Kansspelautoriteit issued sanctions on 23 occasions during the past yearlast_img read more

Rene Ranger set to return to New Zealand and the Blues

first_imgTuesday Mar 3, 2015 Rene Ranger set to return to New Zealand and the Blues The wrecking ball Rene Ranger is all set to return to New Zealand rugby later this year after he was granted an early release from his contract at Montpellier. He has played in France for two seasons, but wants to return home to spend more time with his family. The explosive Ranger will return to the Blues and Super Rugby in 2016, but will be available for North Harbour in the ITM Cup this year. The dynamic 28-year-old back has scored 25 tries in 65 Super Rugby appearances for the Blues. He has also been capped six times by the All Blacks, an indication of the kind of talent they’ve had in the backs in recent years.For Montpellier he’s scored six tries in 15 Top 14 matches, but feels it’s not time to return to New Zealand, with family being the primary reason for the early release request. “Family comes first and that is the big motivator to return. I want to be able to help my Mum more,” Ranger said, and added that chosing the Blues as a destination was an easy decision to make. “I started my Super career with them and they have always been close to me. JK (Blues coach Sir John Kirwan) has always backed me and motivated me to be my best,” he said. He was excited about the prospect of returning to a team he believed was on the improve.“They are a quality side, but execution is letting them down so far. Hopefully I can play a positive role because backs get excited with the sort of front-foot ball the Blues are getting.“I will come home a better rugby player. I am mentally stronger and I’ve learned a lot that I can bring back into the Blues environment.”Kirwan said Ranger’s return would bolster the team with star-quality on the field and a fan-favourite off it. “Rene made his mark on the game in this country as a remarkable attacking player, always able to break tackles, often when there was nothing on.“His experience in Europe will have helped further round his skills and add to his experience. With the likes of Charles Piutau, it will give us a potent attacking unit,” Kirwan said. North Harbour gains RangerRanger will return to New Zealand after his commitments in Europe, and will join North Harbour for the ITM Cup. While Ranger said he remained a Northlander at heart, the key to his decision was the desire for his family to be based in one place.“Last time I travelled from Northland and lived on my own. Our family wants to be together in one place and from that point, I have decided to play for North Harbour.“They are a young team trying to build and that is something new and challenging for me.”Ranger will return midyear to ready himself for the ITM Cup with North Harbour.Ranger has been a favourite here on RD for some time now.

Two inmates who escaped Tennessee prison found in Florida

first_imgDanHenson1/iStockBy BILL HUTCHINSON, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The search for two inmates who escaped from a Tennessee prison Friday is over after the pair were found in Pompano Beach, Florida, Sunday, according to the Tennessee Department of Correction.Before they were caught, the search had an added urgency after authorities said the men allegedly kidnapped a highway worker in the neighboring state of Kentucky and stole the pickup truck of a man who was found tied up in his house.Robert Brown, who was serving an 18-year sentence for aggravated rape, and Christopher Osteen, who was serving an 8-year sentence for burglary, escaped on Friday from the minimum security Northwest Correctional Complex in Tiptonville, about 2 hours northeast of Memphis and less than 15 minutes from the Kentucky border, officials said.Brown, 36, and Osteen, 34, were discovered missing from the prison about 8:30 a.m. following an emergency prisoner count, officials said.About 45 minutes after the prisoners were reported missing, the pair allegedly kidnapped a Fulton County, Kentucky, highway department worker from a boat ramp on the Mississippi River and forced the worker to go with them, according to a statement posted on Facebook by the Henry County Sheriff’s Office in Tennessee.The Kentucky highway employee was found safe just before 2 p.m. on Friday in his work truck off a highway in Henry County, “where he was left by the escapees,” according to the sheriff’s office.“From statements made by the victim, who was blindfolded, it was believed that another vehicle had been taken by the escapees at an unknown location,” the sheriff’s office statement reads.About 2:38 a.m. on Saturday, a Henry County resident was found tied up in his house, sheriff’s officials said. The victim told police that after entering his home and tying him up around 10:30 a.m. on Friday, the fugitives allegedly stole his red 2009 Chevrolet Silverado extended cab truck, officials said.The stolen truck remained missing on Sunday, authorities said.The pair are currently being held by the Broward County Florida Sheriff’s Office. Additional charges against the men have not been announced.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Second ‘cry for help’

first_imgA man had to be talked down from St Michael’s Tower on Cornmarket Street on Monday afternoon, after threatening to commit suicide for the second time in a week. The man, known as Billy, can often be seen playing his guitar next to the railings outside the tower, and is well liked by the church’s staff. An informant, who works in the shop at the bottom of the tower, and would only give his name as Philip, said that Billy came in to ask him for money at midday on Monday. Upon his refusal, Billy ran up the tower, and was pursued by the organist, who was practicing at the time. The organist stayed with Billy until the arrival of the police, who arrested him “for his own safety”. Inspector Gibbs, of the Thames Valley Police, said that the incident was “dealt with promptly and swiftly”. He added that the police will “now rely on medical experts to take on the case.” Monday’s events followed an almost identical incident last week, when the same man sat on the tower and had to be talked down by the police. Church administrator Francis King said, “It was a cry for help rather than anything serious.” Philip commented that he has witnessed similar behaviour from others in the past, although, to his knowledge, no one in recent times has actually attempted to jump off the tower. There is said, however, to be a copy of a 1301 inquest describing how one Robert de Horityn fell from the tower “by mischance”, so that “the whole of his body was broken”. The tower is commonly known to be the oldest building in the whole of Oxford. Police insist that this was an isolated incident. Inspector Gibbs commented on the fact that “people don’t associate Oxford with this”ARCHIVE: 5th week TT 2004last_img read more

O.C. is Place to Be Memorial Day Weekend

first_imgAttired in business wear, the plunge participants march into the waves to officially “open” the ocean for the summer tourism season. By Maddy VitaleOcean City is smiling yet again as the “Happiest Seaside Town of 2018” just received another accolade from Coastal Living Magazine. The resort was just ranked one of the best places on the coast for Memorial Day weekend.So, if you plan on heading down, you made the right decision for the huge weekend that will showcase some zany fun, including Friday’s Business Persons Plunge. People attired in formal business wear take a brisk dip in the ocean to welcome the summer near the Music Pier as part of the annual tradition. The location is also the spot where city officials “unlock” the beach and the ocean with a giant, ceremonial key.In addition to Ocean City, for the best places to go on Memorial Day weekend, the Coastal Living Top 10 list also includes these communities: Charleston, S.C., Honolulu, Hawaii, Long Island, N.Y., New Orleans, La., Put-in-Bay, Ohio, San Diego and San Francisco Calif., Virginia Beach, Va., and Washington, D.C.Coastal Living’s writer, Bob Curley, wrote of Ocean City, “The key to a great summer on the beach is unlocking the ocean — or at least that’s how they roll down on the Jersey Shore: each Memorial Day weekend, Ocean City lifeguards and politicians march down to the beach with a “magical” key to ceremonially kick off the season. Other weekend events include laying a memorial wreath in the surf and a mass plunge into the ocean by people dressed in business attire — briefcases and all.”Retired Ocean City Public Relations Director Mark Soifer officially unlocks the beach in May 2018.Ocean City Regional Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Michele Gillian called it an honor to be recognized by Coastal Living Magazine for all of the activities and events “America’s Greatest Family Resort” has to offer.“To be named with Charleston and Hawaii … what an honor,” she said. “It shows Ocean City is always looking at the big picture of events and activities, from riding bikes, to the beaches, to the bay, birdwatching, fishing and swimming.”She continued, “We have shopping and fantastic eateries. Ocean City is a great place, every day. We have a good weather prediction but if not, Ocean City is a great place for every day. We hope people enjoy their vacations here or become part of the community.”Ocean City gained national recognition starting in 2016 when Coastal Living Magazine named the resort “America’s Best Beach.” Coastal Living continued to heap on the awards in 2018 by proclaiming Ocean City as “America’s Happiest Seaside Town.”The latest award, plus predictions for good weather, give Ocean City momentum heading into the Memorial Day weekend, the traditional start of the summer tourism season. Gillian said the city is ready to welcome the throngs of people coming to the resort for the holiday weekend.“We are anticipating a similar Memorial Day weekend to last year’s with about 80,000 people. We have a lot of second homeowners who come down. This is a big weekend where neighbors get back with their neighbors,” Gillian said. “I know the stores are bracing. All of the places are ready to welcome people back. It will be a great weekend.”Gillian said of the whimsical way the resort brings in the summer season, “The unlocking of the ocean. What couldn’t be better than that?”Ocean City’s family-friendly Boardwalk attracts big crowds each year.The “unlocking of the ocean” leads up to a weekend of family-friendly activities, including a run called 31 Memorial Beach Challenge. The run has an obstacle course challenge in a “soft sand adventure race” that Gillian said attracts a lot of families.Gillian also said the business community is very excited to see the start of the 2019 season.“We think it will be smooth sailing from here until First Night,” she said, referring to Ocean City’s New Year’s Eve celebration. “We welcome all of the people who will visit our beaches, bay, Boardwalk, downtown, rides and attractions, retail shops, and great restaurants.”For more information on Ocean City, visit www.OceanCityVacation.com or call 1-800-BEACH-NJ.
