The Netherlands gaming regulator Kansspelautoriteit has announced that they've received 28 gaming license applications in advance of the country's regulation of the iGaming industry.
The KSA began accepting regulations after the Remote Gambling Act came into effect on April 1st. Thus far, 28 gaming operators have submitted license applications, having paid €48,000 for the license. These groups will now have their applications analyzed and if approved will be able to offer services to Dutch punters beginning on October 1st.
Commenting on the license applications KSA Chairman Rene Jansen said, "The intention of the law is to channel players from illegal providers to legally reliable providers. With this number of applications, I am confident that there will soon be a sufficiently attractive and varied offer to achieve this objective."
We don't currently know who applied for the licenses, but we will update readers as we learn more.
