The New Jersey Game Control Division (DGE) has just warned and sanctioned New Jersey online sports betting and betting operators about a number of deficiencies found by the state regulator.
This shows that many of the game license holders have been breaking the rules of the game established by DGE, which led to the imposition of responsibilities.
Among the operators that have raised most concerns for the regulator is SG digital, the Scientific Games Corporation division, which operates as NYX Digital Gaming in NJ. The regulator imposed a fine of $ 100,000 on November 18 for “deploying three games that were not the tested and approved versions.”
These online games were launched at the beginning of the year through the online operators partners of SG Digital, as reported by The Press of Atlantic City. The games remained active until March, when through an internal audit SG Digital discovered the problem.
In another DGE ruling dated November 16, the regulator fined SG $ 10,000 with another $ 10,000 when found responsible for “multiple regulatory violations.”
Another online sports betting operator sanctioned in New Jersey was William Hill. The fine imposed by DGE on Hill was $ 26,500, for allowing 16 punters who had excluded themselves to continue playing. The DGE also sanctioned the operator with losing more than $ 5,000 he had obtained from self-excluded punters.
Meanwhile GiG Core (the cloud-based platform formerly known as iGaming Cloud), which operates Gaming Innovation Group, also received several penalties. A fine of $ 7,000 for allowing players to continue betting or opening accounts. Another $ 2,000 for launching an unapproved game and not generating a user account and betting summary report for Hard Rock Atlantic City. The third penalty was for not recovering the data of a slot tournament, after the system was blocked and corrected this error or notified the DGE.
The other sanctioned with $ 5,000 was PokerStars of Stars Group, whose penalty was due to the loss of about two hours of poker data from his record. The GAN software provider also received a $ 1,000 fine for breaching the “adequate website performance” guarantee.
DGE issued orders to two casinos owned by Caesars Entertainment to return $ 8,000 obtained from two prohibited players.
