Residents of the Netherlands can only gamble online at Dutch websites. Some major online casino operators took this matter up with the European Court of Justice who confirmed that the Dutch Government could ban online gambling providing it was because they were trying to reduce gambling addiction and crime. However there is a proposal, the Modernization Casinos Regime Act that would require foreign operators to apply for a 5 year license from the Dutch Regulatory Authority (KSA). A large number of online casino operators have shown their interest in applying for this license, once it becomes available.

Casinos in Holland

The Dutch Gambling Act of 1964 only allowed one licence to be issued for land based casinos. This licence was given to the state owned Holland Casino and all their profits go to the Dutch Treasury. The first casino opened in 1976 in Zandvoort and they now run 14 casinos all over the Netherlands. The largest of them is in Amsterdam and the others are located in Breda, Eindhoven, Enschede, Groningen, Leeuwarden, Nijmegen, Rotterdam, Scheveningen, Utrecht, Valkenburg, Venlo and in Amsterdam´s airport Schiphol.

Netherlands Gambling Laws

The Netherlands has one of the oldest national state lotteries, the Nederlandse Staatsloterij lottery was first drawn in 1726. Sports betting was first legalised in 1961 and the the Dutch Gambling Law was introduced in 1964. The Netherlands Gaming Control Board was formed in 1996 to monitor all gambling activities. Since 2012 these Laws have been enforced by the Dutch Gambling Authority (KSA) who replaced the Independent Governing Body, the College van Toezicht op Jansspelen that was founded in 1996. In recent years there has been mounting pressure for online gambling to be fully legalised to allow offshore companies to operate legally within the Netherlands. The Remote Gambling Bill is going through judicial review and is expected to accept licence applications from online casinos early in 2019.
