    Default Dutch regulator may impose loss limits

    In a speech last week, Renι Jansen, chair of Dutch regulator de Kansspelautoriteit (KSA), hinted that he may look to set maximum loss limits for operators.

    From iGaming Business:

    As Jansen stated: “a recent episode of the investigative journalist programme Pointer put the spotlight on operators that allowed a gambler to lose tens of thousands of euros without intervening or taking sufficient action.”

    Jansen then discussed loss limits. Currently, players are required to set a limit but there are no rules governing how high or low this can be.

    “On previous occasions, I expressed my misgivings about the way operators enforce playing limits. There have been instances of playing limits that made it possible to lose up to €100,000 (£85,740/$105,170) and gamble 24/7.”

    He continued, comparing the regulatory environment to peer countries: “In Austria, players can deposit a maximum of €800 a week. In Germany, the maximum is €1,000 a month. In Norway, the maximum loss that players can incur is slightly less than €2,000 a month.”

    “In Sweden, the operator has a statutory duty to initiate an investigation if a gambler exceeds the deposit limit of €930. These examples serve to illustrate that other avenues are open to the legislator.”

    This is a good solution. Not all players are ready to limit themselves. And it spoils many people's lives. There must be some kind of stop system. Because many ludomaniacs spoil life not only for themselves, but also for their family.
