This week the Dutch Gaming Authority has revealed that their attempts to clamp down mobile gambling apps, revealing that they've shut down access to more than 55 apps.
The removal of the apps comes as the regulator works with Apple to pull the apps, as online gaming is still considered illegal within the country. The DGA estimates that the collaboration has stopped more than 10,000 downloads of apps that are not currently allowed. The DGA hasn't had to clamp down on Android devices, as Google does not allow gambling apps on the Google Play store.
Currently, lawmakers are working on passing a series of laws that would open the Dutch gambling market, and would allow for online betting. It is hoped that the bill will be passed in time for implementation by 2017.
