    Default Belgium slashes weekly deposit limit for online players

    The online gambling deposit limit for Belgian players has been reduced from €500 to €200 a week per licensed website. as of 20 October.

    The original €500 limit was spread across all operators that players gambled with but the Belgian Gambling Commission interpreted the rule by applying it to individual operators. It’s been clarified that the new limit will apply per website and will be calculated on a rolling basis, counting the last seven days of a player’s activity.

    According to Journal of Histology & Histopathology, players can request a higher limit:

    Playing with a higher deposit limit
    Would you like to deposit more than €200 per week? Then you must submit a request to the online casino. Then the casino will make a report to the Belgian Gaming Commission. This party checks with the National Bank of Belgium whether the player is known as a defaulter. If this is not the case, then after 3 days the player can increase the limit.
    The National Bank of Belgium then performs this check on a monthly basis. If a player emerges as a defaulter, then the limit is reset to €200 per month.

    Decrease deposit limit
    As a player you can also choose to apply a lower deposit limit. For example $25 or $50 per week. In addition you can choose a daily or monthly limit. Online casinos with a Belgian license are required to offer this option. By doing so, gambling providers stimulate responsible gaming.

    The National Bank of Belgium then performs this check on a monthly basis….that could be a lot of checks for a lot of players for a lot of months, hope the systems are up to the task.

    I think it's the same in every country, but Belgium has also tightened regulations. It's best to play moderately.

    €200 per license I think it's actually better for the player (if I got it right), now they can spend more overall if they have accounts in more than 3 operators as long as each operator has a unique license

    The old players were stolen already. So (for us affiliates) it is good to limit them and force to re-register at a normal gambling company.

    If I were having money from 200 EUR players per month, I would not have written this post bc I would not have money for the cheap laptop that I am using.

    ass-blood sucked by the first from the last is his own

    Good initiative but in the end really won't achieve it's objective with the following:

    "There are also online casinos where you can play without a limit. For example at an online casino without a license in Belgium. If you choose this option it's important to choose a safe and reliable casino."
