Netherlands Will Issue 35 Gaming Licenses

This story was published more than 2 years ago.

Netherlands gaming regulator Kansspelautoriteit has announced that they're expecting to issue around 35 gaming licenses when they initially begin doling out the certifications.

The KSA is going to begin accepting gaming license applications on April 1st in anticipation of launching regulated online gaming within the country on October 1st. The country has been working to legalize and regulate online gaming for years, as the Netherlands is one of the last countries in Western Europe to not have a regulated market for the industry.

The industry is likely going to be hosting a number of big-name operators, as the Netherlands is close to markets that have a prominent media presence.

We'll be following this story and updating readers as more developments regarding who gets a license in the country.
