This week the Netherlands' gaming regulator Kansspelautoriteit has revealed additional details on licensing regulations for online operators, which will apply to international betting companies.

The rules are considered the "broad terms", and will see all operators having to put up a €45,000 non-refundable license application fee. There will be licenses for casino games, poker, sportsbetting, and horseracing. There will also be a requirement for technical Dutch documents to be submitted.

The KSA will vet applicants based partly on their past operations, determining whether or not they've had violations of administrative or tax laws in the past.

Online betting was legalized and will be regulated beginning on January 1st, 2021. License applications can be submitted beginning July 1st, 2020.
