In its supervision, the Gaming Inspectorate has found that a number of licensees violated the legislation in this respect.
According to the Gaming Inspectorate’s assessment, the provision of betting on events or events where predominantly players are under the age of 18 is a direct danger to minors being exposed to the influence of manipulating results, which in turn leads to negative consequences of gambling.
The Gaming Inspectorate considers the violations to be serious and has decided on measures against the following licensees:
