Romania Takes Drastic Action: Cash Gaming License Revoked

The National Gaming Authority (ONJN), gambling regulator in Romania, has decided to revoke Cash Gaming SRL’s slot machine licence. This happened due to the company’s failure to fulfil mandatory payments.

For the company headquartered in the municipality of Bistriya, the licence was valid from 2021 to 2031.

Faults in Cash Gaming’s Q1 2023 filings showed that the company had not paid the full authorization fee and tax, leading to this discrepancy being identified.

During the quarter, Cash Gaming was required to pay a commission of 1.6 million RON, but only 371,039 RON was paid out. Similarly, the tax for this period was 179,325 lei, but Cash Gaming only paid 40,330 lei.

After 30 days, Cash Gaming had not paid the full amount of the authorization fee and tax, which led to the Committee’s conclusion that there was a violation of article 17, paragraph 2a, of the Romanian Government’s Emergency Ordinance (GEO).

In accordance with this section, the Committee has the right to revoke gambling licences if mandatory payments are not paid in full within 30 days.

In its decision, the Committee confirmed that Cash Gaming is still required to pay the unpaid commissions.
