Dutch Onlne Gambling Could Allow Operators Back In

Share This

There may be good news for those online gaming operators accused of offering online gaming to Dutch gamblers and possibly then banned for applying for a gambling license once the parliament there discuss legislation allowing for online gambling to be regulated.

Previously Ministers had said that those companies found to be supplying online gaming services to Dutch nationals would not be allowed to apply for a gambling license once the government properly set out laws and regulations to issue legal online gambling licenses, however justice minister Sander Dekker has come out and said that those companies might now be allowed to apply for a license as the danger is if those operators are excluded many Dutch nationals could well still use them even without a gambling license.

The issue then would be those companies would still be offering services but not taxed, with the parliament in summer recess the gambling subject will be brought up once lawmakers return, but the idea from the justice minister would make sense as the Dutch gambling laws were deemed by many as a grey area previously.
