Dutch Gaming Authority KSA to stamp down illegal iGaming

1 Jun 2017

Dutch Gaming AuthorityThe Dutch Gaming Authority KSA has decided to crack down on illegal gambling in view of the upcoming licensing changes.

Although the Kansspelautoriteit had warned foreign operators that they will be heavily fined if they kept offering their iGaming services to punters in Netherlands, no real action had been taken. However, this time it seems likely that foreign betting sites will adhere to the KSA rules, as any violations will not only lead to a sportsbook or casino blacklisting, but also to a licensing ban.

KSA Vice Chairman Henk Kesler was quite clear on these new instructions as he claimed that: "The fact that minors can participate in online gambling is unacceptable."

The iGaming market in the Netherlands is set to undergo radical changes on its structure on Q2 2017, as the previous grey market will give way to a new licensing system.
