Earlier in the previous week, Dutch gambling regulator Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) announced that it has seized various “Cash Center” cash machines in a bid to clamp down illegal gambling in the country.
As per reports, the Dutch Public Prosecution Service and KSA have been working together for conducting investigations on illegal gambling performed through the above-mentioned machines.
Sources closely following the matter state that a number of individuals have been identified by the KSA and Public Prosecution Service who they suspect are running the illegal operation. Roughly 14 individuals are reportedly being considered as suspects, including owners of both the illegal website as well as the machines.
As per a report published by the KSA, the cash machines are being used by unlicensed operators to allow consumers to deposit and withdraw funds from an online betting account through an illegal website. This account can easily be set up anonymously on a mobile device or a computer, by which the users are able to bet on sports events and claim any winnings at the Cash Center.
