    Default Online gambling in Netherlands delayed until 2021

    On Friday of last week, Netherlands Minister of Justice and Security announced that proposed changes to the Remote Gambling Act will now come into effect on 1 January, 2021, followed by a six-month application window for operator licensing.

    This means no online licenses will be issued until after July 1, 2021, six months later than previously announced.

    From Vegas Slots Online:

    According to Dekker’s ministry, the Netherlands’ regulatory plans will rest on two pillars. The first is the legalization of online gambling itself, while the second is the addition of further addictive-gambling protections to Dutch law. The latter will also become applicable to the country’s land-based gambling forms.

    The delay announced also gives the Ksa an opportunity to fine-tune its regulatory framework. When the primary Remote Gambling Act was passed, the Dutch Senate introduced four motions, or amendments, that also needed to be addressed. According to Dekker, this added to the delay.
