Euro 2016 campaigns could see operators become ineligible for licensure, says KSA

Dutch gaming regulator Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) has reminded operators that gambling advertising remains illegal in the country, after discovering that some operators are preparing promotional activity ahead of a number of high-profile sporting events this summer.

The regulator said it is aware that some iGaming operators are preparing promotional campaigns around this summer's UEFA Euro 2016 tournament, the Tour de France and the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, warning that they will face prosecution if they breach the advertising ban.

"[They are] taking these steps with the Dutch online gaming market yet to open, with the House of Representatives to discuss the remote gaming bill ahead of the summer. Only once this bill has been approved will gaming operators be eligible to apply for a licence and gambling be legal," the KSA said.

“Operators who do not comply risk sanctions and could subsequently lose the chance to apply for a potential online gaming licence.”
