Veteran gaming consultant, active in the iGaming industry since 2005 to present insider information about Netherlands and Spain at EGC Milan 2019!

 

It has been reported earlier this year, that in the Netherlands, a total of 125 companies have told the country’s gambling regulator that they are interested to obtain the online gambling license, once it becomes legal in 2021.

Two-thirds of the requests come from outside the Netherlands and include big names such as Bwin, Unibet, and Pokerstars.

Earlier this year, the Senate voted to open up the market to other companies. Holland Casino is the only state-regulated gambling establishment in the Netherlands.

The new law is restrictive and contains a number of elements to try to combat addiction. Players have to register and state their limits and will be periodically reminded of the risk of addiction on screen.

The gambling firms will also have to appoint an addiction expert and pay gambling taxes of 29%, which is one of the highest in Europe.

Without any doubt, the Netherlands will be among the most interesting subjects in the second edition of the European Gaming Congress (EGC) which will take place on the 8th of November at Radisson Blu Hotel Milan.

Willem van Oort (Founder of Gaming in Holland / Gaming in Spain) will bring the key information about the Netherlands in the “Benelux Market Update” panel discussion where he will join Marko Jankovic (Head Of Business Development at G-Core Labs S.A.).

Given the extensive experience Willem has across multiple markets, we have also invited him to join “Highlights from Southwest Europe (Spain, Portugal)” compliance panel discussion, and as the founder of Gaming in Spain to talk about the inside information he has on the Spanish jurisdiction.

Willem van Oort is a gaming consultant, active in the iGaming industry since 2005. He services international companies for market access, marketing and strategic business matters for Spain and the Netherlands.
