The Netherlands Gambling Authority strongly advises against gambling at illegal online providers. If a provider does not have a license, there is no control on a fair game, payment of prizes won or prevention of gambling addiction. At present there are no gambling providers that have a license to offer online gambling.
No, not yet. The Minister for Legal Protection, who bears responsibility for government policy regarding games of chance, will determine this. The Netherlands Gaming Authority, which is tasked with the supervision and implementation of this policy, will soon issue licences authorising the holder to offer online games of chance. The Minister and the Netherlands Gaming Authority will consult on the further course of action.
