The Belgian Gambling Commission (BGC) has analyzed more than 100 cases that could lead to certain sanctions. As a result, the regulator exempted 67 cases from potential punishment. These cases escaped sanctions because some of them happened too long ago, while others did not violate the country’s gambling legislation at all.

As for the remaining 23 cases, the regulator applied 55 sanctions to them. The total amount of fines reached 59,958 euros. Besides that, the BGC’s report showed that the number of valid licenses increased to 15,997 by the end of 2020. This figure surpassed the 2019 results by 397.
