KSA sets €50,000 minimum fine for Covid-19 adverts
Published 20th March 2020
The regulator said it had noticed both operators using Covid-19 to promote their offerings, using terms such as "Coronavrij gokken" (Corona-free gambling) to do so.
As a result operators, affiliates, review sites and unlicensed land-based operators would all face a 25% increase in the current penalty for illegal activity, meaning the minimum fine would start at €250,000.
This may be increased further, based on the content of the ad in question.
