Foreign providers receive a license
If you are gambling online now, you do that with gambling providers who have a license in, for example, Malta or Curacao. Soon that will change: to attract customers in the USA online Casino’s must apply for a Dutch permit. That's not cheap. In addition, they will be 29% Gambling tax must pay the Dutch state. And they will have to settle here.

Your own compulsory player profile!
Where you now register fairly and easily at an online casino, it will soon be slightly more cumbersome. The government obliges providers to have a profile of you as a player. That profile provides insight into your playing method: how much you use (max), how much you deposit, how much you lose, etc. You indicate the bandwidths yourself. This helps online casinos and the government to combat addiction to you. So in itself a good initiative!

  • Mandatory Dutch customer service
  • mandatory statement of the social security number and passport when registration
