Right after the Dutch Gambling Authority’s (KSA) publication of its new enforcement plan, Betsson’s operational subsidiaries have resolved to prevent accepting Dutch buyers on its global internet websites.

The operators says it has often been fully commited to building the changes vital for attributing to the channelisation goals of the regulator, as effectively as putting alone in a good situation for the Dutch licensing procedure.

Pontus Lindwall, outgoing CEO and President of Betsson AB, commented: “Compliance with rules, policies and moral specifications in the countries in which we work is a basis for Betsson. We have a powerful perception in the Dutch market place, and we have a crystal clear ambition to run beneath the new Dutch regulatory framework in the long term, generating us capable to still once again give Dutch clients an fantastic and sustainable consumer working experience.”

Kindred Team has also taken the decision to stop any companies to Dutch end users, as the team is aiming to receive approval of its Dutch licence. The conclusion is mentioned to be non permanent due to the fact, according to Kindred, the letter from Minister Sander Dekker does not explicitly request operators to cease products and services on the Dutch market as long as the conditions released in 2019 are adopted.

As the group awaits further more clarification, its CEO, Henrik Tjärnström, argued: “We appear ahead to getting our Dutch licence in the course of 2022, and thereby positively contribute to the Dutch culture as a valued specialist in attaining a sustainable gambling industry. We have normally put a secure gambling ecosystem at the pretty core of our approach and functions, and previously now comply as substantially as doable with all Dutch licence requirements.”
