Dutch Regulators Release New Gambling Guidelines


The Netherlands’ gaming authority, De Kansspelautoriteit (KSA), released a new draft of guidelines that looks to increase consumer protection and fight against gambling addiction.

According to the website European Gaming, the draft is based on the Dutch Betting and Gaming Act, and it states that gambling operators have a “duty of care” to prevent problem gambling.

KSA regulators have asked gambling stakeholders to participate in a consultation with the regulatory body where they can express their opinion. Gambling companies and other stakeholders have until April 22 to consult with the KSA, and the authority will release a final draft of the guidelines.

The KSA also recently increased the maximum fine that could be levied against illegal gambling operations to €200,000. Two companies were fined last week for providing illegal online gambling.
