Three Eindhoven men assisting police with their enquiries

The Dutch may be moving toward online gambling legalisation (see previous reports) but they're not there yet, a fact attested to by raids Friday in which seven online casinos were taken off-line and three men detained to assist police in their enquiries into allegations of illegal online gambling.

The publication Casino.nl reported that, following information from the Dutch Gaming Authority, police raiding parties, accompanied by two judge-commissioners, visited a number of premises in Eindhoven in an operation reportedly undertaken by a total of 150 officers.

Three men are reportedly assisting the police with their enquiries: Michel Gregoire (32); his brother Maurice Gregoire (34) and Stijn Flapper (34). There are allegations that very large sums of money are involved, and that charges of laundering monies obtained through the drug trade may be in progress.

The following online casinos have been taken off-line, AZOC checks confirmed early Saturday:

amsterdamscasino.com

amsterdamspoker.com

fruitluck.com

golden10casino. com

jackpotred.com

tanzoo.com

triplegoldcasino.com

Net Gaming Solutions, an online gambling company allegedly associated with the three suspects, was also off-line Saturday amid reports that its claimed Costa Rica operating base and a faux owner identity of Dakota Enterprises SA may have been a ruse designed to cloak the real location and identity of those involved in an illegal online gambling business.

The fact that the Dutch authorities were able to quickly take all of the sites off-line suggests the possibility that the servers were not in Costa Rica at all.
