NETHERLANDS TARGETS AFFILIATES AS ONLINE GAMING REVENUE EXCEEDS EXPECTATIONS
Netherlands gambling regulator Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) has investigated 22 online gaming affiliates who are active in the recently regulated market, with more than half of them found to be promoting unlicensed gambling.
Fifteen of the 22 affiliate websites violated the Gambling Act, including 13 which have been, or soon will be, served with a desist order and penalty.
Two investigations are ongoing and a number of websites have switched to promoting licensed operators, the regulator said.
KSA chairman René Jansen also provided an update this week on the state of the newly regulated online gaming market, upping the full-year forecast gross gaming revenue to €814m from the previously forecast figure of €580m.
Jansen said that it is still too early to draw any conclusions from the market bit it is clearly a lot bigger than expected. He also noted that most players have found their way to the regulated market, with monitoring showing that 83.6 per cent of time spent in October by Dutch players on gambling websites was with legal providers.
