By Sophie Couard

According to the regulator, Mr Green has failed to stop players in the Netherlands from playing for money.

The regulator of the Dutch online gambling market Kansspelautoreit is back in the headlines. After fining Corona, a subsidiary of Betsson, €300,000, the online casino Mr Green has now been fined €312,000.

No IP address lock

The famous casino with the green-clad mascot was convicted by the Kansspeleutoreit (KSA) because they did not prevent Dutch players from spending money on their site. Under Dutch law, the site should actually use a technology to block IP addresses.

Objection to this decision

The operator intends to appeal the decision to fine them €312,000.

The MRG Group, owner of Mr Green, has already announced that they intend to appeal against the decision, arguing that most gambling operators in the Netherlands do not use IP card locks because of the implementation of such a lock is very difficult. The company also said that the Dutch market accounts for 6% of its total turnover.
