New Jersey’s regulatory body has issued penalty packages to NYX and William Hill.
The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (NJDGE) has fined William Hill for self-exclusion failings and NYX for regulatory violations.
These fines were announced as part of the NJDGE director’s actions between November 16 and November 30. During this period, PokerStars also received a $5,000 fine for violating data retention rules.
The state regulator also issued three penalties to iGaming Cloud, for self-exclusion failings, revenue reporting violations and operating unapproved software, which totalled $11,000.
This news comes just weeks after the NJDGE issued a warning to media and news outlets in the state stating that they should not promote unlicensed sports betting sites.
What did William Hill do?
William Hill was found to have allowed 16 self-excluded customers to place sports wagers online. As a result of this, the NJDGE ordered William Hill to pay a settlement of $26,500.
What did NYX do?
NYX, a supplier which is part of SG Digital, was found to have deployed three games that were different from the versions tested by the NJDGE in November. As a result of this, the New Jersey regulatory fined SG Digital $100,000.
The NJDGE said that the NYX violated section 13:69D-2.3(f)2 of the New Jersey Administrative Code, which requires the DGE to be provided with release notes at least 24 hours before a game receives an update.
NYX was also fined for “multiple regulatory violations.” According to the docket for the fine, NYX violated a rule stipulating that casino employees must ensure software works as intended and that its online systems shall identify and report self-excluded bettors.
