Remote Gaming Bill in Netherlands passed

CasinoNews.Today Legislation

Remote Gaming Bill in Netherlands was passed by the Dutch parliament this week.

On Thursday, landmark votes paved the way for a fully regulated online gaming market to operate in the country for the first time. The bill will most likely be accepted by the Dutch Senate later this year and the regulation will be in power in 2017.

Under the newly added amendments, lotteries and land based operators will not be able to use their current player databases to advertise their online offerings. What is more, land based operators will need to erect physical entry and player identification barriers and pay some money for a problem gambling fund.

The new Remote Gaming Bill in Netherlands will be a great news for online gambling companies that would like to move into the Netherlands as the bill would end years of uncertainity. At the same time, it would improve players’ protection and initiate greater innovation in the market.

Jasper Hoekert, co-founder of Revenue Engineers:

“We are absolutely delighted to see the Dutch Remote Gaming Bill finally pass through parliament. While there are some aspects of the legislation which are not ideal, this is still a very workable framework and I am confident that the Netherlands will quickly emerge as one of Europe’s most important gaming jurisdictions. For any operators or providers looking to make the most of this new opportunity, it is important to act quickly and seek local expertise.”
