NJ DGE issues penalty packages to NYX and William Hill
The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) has issued two civil penalty packages to NYX for unapproved games and regulatory violations, as well as a penalty to William Hill for self-exclusion failings.
The penalties were announced as part of the DGE director’s actions from November 16 to November 30, which also included a $5,000 penalty for PokerStars for a violation of data retention rules and a series of three penalties, totalling $11,000, for iGaming Cloud for self-exclusion failings, operating unapproved software and revenue reporting violations.
NYX, a supplier and part of SG Digital, was ruled to have deployed three games that were different to the versions tested and approved by the DGE in a docket dates 18 November. As a result, SG Digital was ordered to pay a fine of $100,000.
The DGE said in its sanction of NYX the supplier violated section 13:69D-2.3(f)2 of the New Jersey Administrative Code, which states the DGE must be provided with release notes 24 hours before any update of a game.
