Trannel International Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Kindred Group (previously Unibet Group) has today been issued a penalty of €470,000 by the Netherlands Gambling Authority (KSA) for accepting bets from Dutch customers.

Between August and December 2018, Kindred’s Unibet brand offered Dutch-language chat support; the iDEAL payment method, and, contrary to players from certain other countries and territories, customers from the Netherlands were not explicitly excluded from Kindred’s service offering.

Despite the fine, Kindred remains committed to obtaining a license on online sports-betting and gaming as soon as the Dutch market opens, the company said in a press release.
