Netherlands Halts Self-Exclusion Temporarily

The Netherlands has temporarily halted its nationwide self-exclusion service after a fault with the dependent identification technology was discovered.

The service, which is formally called the Centraal Register Uitsluiting Kansspelen (Cruks), and it allows players to register to exclude themselves from a series of betting websites and casinos in the country. The issue at hand was that there was a malfunction with the digital ID service DigiD, which will keep players from being able to register or change their registration after registering.

Cruks went live last October when regulated iGaming went live in the country. Thus far, there have been 20,000 people that have self-excluded. The service allows those who exclude for a minimum of six months up to a lifetime. Players can sign themselves up, or can be involuntarily admitted by a partner, family, or a gambling firm itself. Each application is looked at by the KSA and is approved of before they're admitted.
