Kansspelautoriteit-Dutch gambling management. The Office is responsible for regulating the Dutch gambling market and protecting the rights of players. It also participates in international cooperation with other gaming bodies.

Gambling regulator KSA has so far received 28 applications from operators. All of them offer various gambling games in the online market of the country. The authorities have planned to open the online gambling market at the end of this year.

Since April 1, a new national law has come into force, which concerns remote gambling. The market was supposed to open on October 1, so KSA launched the licensing process this month.

KSA reports that all 28 operators have paid the amount of 48,000 euros that is required to apply. This amount is not necessary, without it it is impossible to apply.

If the state administration approves them, then they will be able to offer gambling through approved websites from October this year.

KSA Chairman René Jansen said that the law was adopted to ensure that players use only legally reliable suppliers for games, since there is a problem with the distribution of illegal online games. The chairman also noted that given such a large number of applications, we can be sure that soon players will have many legal options for online gaming.

Earlier, the KSA reported that it is expected to receive about 40 applications for gambling. It is planned to issue about 35 permits for such activities.

The national law on remote gambling was supposed to enter into force on July 1, 2020. But it was postponed three times before coming into effect this month.

Operators who wish to offer games must develop a responsible and effective strategy, and will also need to connect to the Central Register, which assumes the exclusion of certain gambling in the country (Cruks).

Moreover, operators need to provide information to the Control Database (KDB). This data concerns site visitors and players. This method will allow you to monitor game systems.
