28 online operators have applied for a KSA license

20 Apr 2021

The Dutch gambling regulator, Kansspelautoriteit (KSA), launched a licensing process after the establishment of the new national Remote Gambling Act (Koa), which legalized online gambling, from 1 April 2021.

According to Kansspelautoriteit, 28 online gambling operators have already applied for a license, in order to offer their services within the newly regulated market. It has been confirmed that operators meeting the proper requirements, will obtain a license for online gaming scheduled to open on 1 October 2021.

All operators applying for Dutch licenses are required to have in place a responsible gambling policy and strategy in order to prevent addiction. Added to that, a major key factor is the ability to deal with the players’ balance uprightly and, of course, have a connection with the Central Register of Exclusion of Gambling (a GAMSTOP-like service).

As already stated, all 28 applicants have paid the required €48,000 fee as part of their submission in order to acquire a license and begin operating several betting sites.

René Jansen, chairman of the board of the KSA, mentioned: “The intention of the law is to channel players from illegal providers to legally reliable providers. With this number of applications, I trust that there will soon be a sufficiently attractive and varied offer to achieve this objective.”
