GiG gets $25k fine for letting New Jersey outsider play

New Jersey’s Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) has slapped Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) a $25k fine for allowing a gambler from outside the state to wager online with a local operator. The Sweden-based online gambling technology firm did not contest the charge, agreeing that there was sufficient legal and factual support for the recommended penalty. The DGE has issued similar geolocation penalties in the past: GAN in 2016, PokerStars in 2017 and Borgata and Caesars Interactive Entertainment New Jersey last March.
