Companies Move Out Of Dutch Online Gambling Market
Over Half Of Targeted Online Bookmakers Have Stopped Targeting Dutch Players
The Dutch government is having some success in managing its online betting and poker market ahead of regulation.
DutchNews.nl reports that over 20 of the 40 companies which the lawmakers have written to to request they stop targeting Dutch customers have complied including Unibet, Ladbrokes, and bwin.
The sites are closing in the hope of getting a license to operate in Holland when the liberalisation of the gambling market takes place.
Earlier this year the Dutch Supreme Court ordered the online gaming companies to install software which would identify and block Dutch citizens.
In 2010 a government commission recommended the opening up of the gambling market but the process of adoption by the state has been slow and largely stalled.
