This is a discussion on The Stars Group is hit with a fine in The Netherlands within the online poker forums, in the Poker News and Events section; The Stars Group has been hit with a €400,000 ($438,000) fine by Dutch regulator Kansspelautoriteit (KSA), after PokerStars was found to have been operating in
Ok. This then makes a little more sense why they would state they would be cutting jobs. They said it was "regulations" when they should have said "massive fines".
Still doesn't answer my question though: Why do you need some 500 employees at their Isle of Man compound and WHAT are these people doing all day (customer support)?

How does something like this even happen. There's no way it was an accident. They probably figured they could make more money off letting them play than the fine would be when they got caught, so why not? I dunno.

re: Poker & The Stars Group is hit with a fine in The Netherlands
I look at the problem from the other side. The PokerStars tried to help players from the Netherlands who wanted to play.

It is normal to be fined for breaking the law, but I do not understand why at their level they compromise on such things ?!
