With most of Europe moving clearly towards a more regulated online casino gaming setup, The Netherlands look set to be next. The Dutch Senate looks set to start finally making moves on a long-discussed Remote Gambling Bill. Despite being delayed more than once over the years, this interesting new development is locally to see re-regulation and local online gambling made available across the country.
There’s been a slow but surely move towards finally moving on the bill that was given majority support in the upper house of the Dutch Parliament. While we’re probably still some way away from seeing it put through and fully in place, it’s certainly a positive for the long-term future of the Dutch online gaming scene. This has been a long-running debate and it’s going to be interesting to see what happens with the progress of the bill. One part of the bill which will be discussed will be to do with a reduction in an advertisement on websites and on social media.
It’s going to be interesting to see if the Dutch are the next nation to move forward with a more open-minded approach on regulation. Despite many years of delays, we could finally see some action that would help to avoid the deadlock which has taken place for so long. As a fertile location for online casino gaming, it’ll be interesting to see which of the major international operators are brought in to take part in regulating the market.
