KSA Sanctions Licensed Operator for “Misleading” Affiliate Ad

Reading Time: < 1 minute


Dutch gambling regulator Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) has sanctioned a licensed operator that had placed an ad the KSA said was “misleading”, as it was not clearly labelled as gambling marketing.

According to the KSA, the operator had advertised odds on a football news website. Clicking on the odds then led to the operator’s website.

The KSA said, however, that it was unclear that the promotion came from a gambling operator. As a result, the advertisement was ruled as forbidden under the Remote Gambling Act (KOA).

The regulator thus ordered the licensee to remove the advertisement within 36 hours, which it did.

The operator is one of 10 that received online gaming licences from KSA in September.
