Dutch Regulator Expects to Issue 35 Online Gambling Licences
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The Netherlands Gaming Authority Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) is expecting that it will have to grant around 35 online gambling licences, after its iGaming regulation comes into force.

KSA said it expects to receive around 40 licence applications, many of which will come from international operators, when the Remote Gambling Act comes into effect on April 1.

The regulator has stated this in its annual report 2020, alongside key requirements for licence holders, and the additional powers granted to the KSA to tackle illegal gambling activities.

The report reaffirmed the importance for operators to abide by the parts of the Remote Gambling Act concerning addiction prevention and consumer protection.

Notably, all operators must check players against the “Cruks” self-exclusion database, as well as providing the Control Database (CDB) with their own data captured from games, allowing the KSA to carry out remote monitoring of game systems. Cruks and the CDB went into construction in 2020, with follow-up actions still required in the early months of 2021 to make the systems operational.

An extension of the gambling levy will also be used to set up an Addiction Prevention Fund, with proceeds being used to provide anonymous treatment of gambling addiction, and research prevention and treatment.

KSA also revealed in the report that it made €8.2m in gambling taxes in 2020, up 12.3% plus €644,000 from fees, down 41.5%.

The report also mentioned licensing data for slot arcades, where the KSA granted 43 permits in 2020 and denied nine. A further 10 applications were withdrawn while seven applications were approved after changes were implemented.

KSA added that there was a decrease in online gambling web traffic throughout 2020, which it said was due to sports cancellations.

Designed and manufactured by Apex, ChipperX is a dedicated chip management device. It automatically sorts chips by value or colour into one of 12 designated chip tracks. Each chip track is configured to sort and store a defined number of chip types.

ChipperX has the computing power to quickly and accurately count, sort and distribute up to 500 chips per minute. It produces game statistics with a minute-by-minute display stored in the device’s memory for one year.

Easy operation is guaranteed by remote control and diagnostics. Through remote access to ChipperX settings and management, Apex’s team of technicians can help customers control the device remotely in real time. This reduces operating costs and service time.
