European Commission to review Holland’s next online gambling steps

16 Jul 2020

ksaIt's been almost one and a half years since the Remote Gambling Act (RGA) was approved in Holland. Officials have been trying to set up an appropriate framework for the next steps. As it stands, online gaming should be expected to commence in the Netherlands on July 1, 2021. Kansspelautoriteit, the local gambling regulator, will be accepting license applications from any interested operators from January 1st.

The KSA just a few days ago, released a document named “Market Vision”, in which it describes the procedures of overseeing the whole process. A statement has also been released: ‘We notice that illegal online operators are trying to cash in on the current situation. That is unacceptable. We have even observed consumers being enticed into what is being touted as a ‘corona-free offering’. Utterly reprehensible. The parties that are engaging in such activities – operators as well as their advertisers – can expect increased scrutiny by the Ksa. Parties employing these kinds of practices can be assured that this will have a severely negative impact on a possible application for an online gambling license.’

Legal Protection Minister Sander Dekker has said that things could be delayed if the Kansspelautoriteit can't vouch that all proposed standards will be followed. When the European Commission finally approves the proposed plan, applying operators should expect to fall under continuous audits of all of their activities, in order to provide quality services in the Netherlands online betting scene. The general notion is that supervision is going to be strict on them, with players’ protection having paramount importance.
