Text video message René Jansen, Chairman of the Board of Directors

The Netherlands Gambling Authority is very pleased that the Senate has adopted the Bill on Remote Gambling.

It was a lengthy and intensive legislative process. Games of chance are therefore risky products; it is important to deal with this carefully. Especially in the interest of the consumer.

Over time it will be possible to apply for a license in the Netherlands for the provision of online games of chance.

The Netherlands Gambling Authority tests both the applicants for a permit and the content of the applications.

There will be strict conditions in a permit. They have to protect players, prevent gambling addiction and guarantee a fair game.

We will closely monitor compliance with these conditions.

All this with the aim to create an attractive legal offer for players who want to play online safely.

The Netherlands gambling Authority continues to combat illegal games of chance.

Let's get started!
