Dutch Regulator Provides further Information for Prospective Licensees

Kansppelautoriteit, the authority responsible for the regulation of gambling in Holland, have provided further details and requirements for operators who are considering applying for a remote gaming licence within the country. Earlier this year in February, the Dutch Senate passed a bill which will see remote gambling being regulated and licensed in Holland as from 1st January 2021.

The KSA have outlined the requirements for operators to be considered for the issuing of a remote gaming licence, so as they can legally operate within the Netherlands.

The information provided, which is detailed here,  will allow for operators who wish to apply for a licence, to prepare accordingly for when remote gambling becomes regulated within Holland. The cost of applying for a licence is to be set at €45,000 and should the application be unsuccessful, the application fee is not refundable.

The licence issued to operators by the authority, will cover four different games of chance, these are covered here on the KSA’s website.

The new information is in addition to the guidelines that the KSA released in July earlier this year. One point that stands out is that all applicants for a licence from the KSA, will have to attend a number of  workshops organised by the regulator, of which technical requirements to be a licence holder will be discussed.

Another area of note is that any operator that is subsequently licensed by the KSA will be required to provide all game data in a ‘Control Database’, granting full access to the regulator.

The dates of these workshops have as of yet not been confirmed, but will be announced in due course. The announcement of which is partly dependent on the finalisation of the legislation which will allow remote gambling in Holland from 2021.

The KSA also plan to provide additional information over the next few months as to what is required and expected of any operator that wishes to apply for a remote gambling licence in Holland.
