Some sites that have a licence delivered by the Gaming Commission may offer games of chance online. You can participate in games of chance only at these sites. If you play on one of the illegal sites, you could face criminal prosecution as a participant.

If the Public Prosecution Service decides not to prosecute, or if no further action has been taken against you within six months, the Gaming Commission may impose administrative fines both on the organisers and on the players. For the players, the administrative fine may be anywhere between € 26 and € 25,000 (in case of repeat offences, or if minors are involved, these amounts are doubled). For the organisers, these fines can rise to as much as € 100,000.
