The Dutch have provided banks with the names of 35 online gambling companies and have asked them to block transactions to stop people in the Netherlands from doing business with said online gambling companies.
While the government is looking for help from the banks in the Netherlands, they know they cannot fully stop the illegal activity. "This is a Dutch issue, so we have only asked banks operating in the Netherlands to participate," said a spokeswoman for the Justice Ministry.
The only organization allowed to offer online gambling in the Netherlands is, of course, the state lottery. Any other company operating gambling online is doing so illegally.
