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.
