    Default Dutch online gaming delayed (again)

    For the third time, the Dutch Remote Gambling Act (KOA) has been delayed.

    After announcing a second delay back in November, Minister for Legal Protection Sander Dekker has pushed the date the law comes into effect back to 1 April 2021. The market is now set to open 1 October.

    KOA was originally scheduled to enter into law on 1 July 2020, with the market to open six months later at the start of 2021.

    From iGaming Business:

    Responding to a series of questions from legislators, Dekker announced that the latest delay was necessary as the Government had realised a slower implementation of the laws may create a stronger environment of regulation.

    “Earlier I informed you that we are aiming for entry into force on 1 March 2021,” Dekker said. “ Although the implementation is proceeding energetically, it has now become clear to all involved that careful implementation takes a little more.

    “For this reason, we shall postpone the entry into force of the Koa Act by one month until 1 April, 2021, so that De Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) and the gambling sector have sufficient opportunity for complete preparation. The opening of the market will then take place on 1 October 2021.”

    Sad to read that..

    My partner from Dutch project told me that their conversion in December was off but still they have great traffic.

    And I'm not sure they could save their positions in top during such a long time.
